Leos party and other things

Leo's party went very well ~ and the field was a brilliant idea as people brought their caravans and tents with them to spend the night there ~ which saved looking for somewhere to park our caravan ~

I tell you Anna had thought of everything ~ Leo got 2 Sandpits both different so Anna is going to have sand in one and water in the other one ~ that should be fun ~ each child got a goodie bag with chocolate and other bits and pieces and each one got a small bubble blower so my present didn't see the light of day ~ never mind Leo will have fun with it I am sure ~

 There was plenty of food both for the little ones and the adults ~ a lovely chocolate birthday cake for Leo ~ and lots of games for them to play ~ there was one frantic moment when one of a little pair of twins went missing ~ but thankfully he was found in a very short time ~ and was OK ~ there are lots of Lakes there so for a minute that was a worry

~ everyone had a really good time ~ It was nice when the Children went to bed and the adults got together for a good old natter ~ We didn't know a lot of Anna's friends but they were a very sociable crowd of people ~ and we had a good time ~ and a good laugh ~

Lyn and I were out earlier today and Lyn decided to open the back windows forgetting the Flags were there ~ well they are not there anymore as they fell off in the middle of a very busy Road ~ lol ~ so will have get some more ~

Hi Ally,  It looked like great fun at Leo`s birthday party.  That fabulous clever food has given me some ideas for Roman`s birthday part next month, I`ve been wracking my brain for ideas! :o)  I love the pink petal on your flower, where did that come from I wonder?  Thanks for sharing the party photos, they were smashing! :o)

Your gathering looks like it was a lot of fun!  A great time for adults and children.  Little Leo is adorable.  His cake was really cute!  Makes me want to go camping again.  It's been a long time.    Kathy

Sounds a perfect Birthday and Leo's cake is scrumptious...........one pink petal to mark the day too.  A birthday for adults and kids to remember, you'll have to do it again next year. Rache  

lindachapmanuk said...

That field was such a good idea. It sounds an absolutely perfect day. It's always lovely when there is a good mix of adults as well as children. The food looked yummy,Leo had such a lovely day! Wasn't that one pink petal unusual! Laughed at the flag bit too lol Linda xx

faircolleen said...

The party looks great,what a good idea to have it in a field too.Food looks lovely too. Your daughter looks nice and comfy there Ally

icklemisssexpot said...

What a brill idea for a party :o)  sounds like everyone had loads of fun too...How strange the flower is with the one lonely pink petal...Am afraid i don't like roses much at all, i prefer carnations and lilies   Caff xxxxx

happinessdreams said...

faveanti said...

A field eh? Wonderful idea.  No carpets to stain, no ornaments to knock off, in fact usual party rules do not apply!  Sounds more like a Jamboree.

deegleed said...

Oh. by the way the photos of the party are great. I enjoyed looking at them. Dan.

Hi Ally!

Ooops sorry about the flags!  Tell Leo Happy Birthday!  Isn't that sweet he shares mine!  Glad the little twin was found quickly.  Both of mine were lost at different times for short (seemly very loooong) spells while we were in England.  Brandons was at one of those Holiday camps.  They were both safe....but the "not knowing" is traumatizing!!!

Glad you had a good time!

Hugs!
Darlene

Thank you for always stopping by and leaving such nice comments...

Happy Belated Birthday to Leo!
Linda :)

A question from your stupid friend in the U.S.; What's a "natter"?  Party food looks awesome, as does the cake...very creative bunch, you are!  Jae

Leo's birthday of reaching one year old is a memorable event in the family album to be enjoyed for years to come.     I had a tendency to "wander off" when I was little and I was told by my mother that I had to be brought home by a policeman after being found in a pit in a house construction site.     No wonder I like construction still, lol.       I also was brought back to my grandparents farm auction by some people who picked me up on the road going to the auction.     I can remember being at the auction but not being picked up and brought back as it is one of my earliest memories.     I am glad the one twin was safe and returned quickly.     I am going to lay down on my board and cushion and read for about 2 hours and then try to get some roofing done on my cabin today.    We are not working on the addition construction for the rest of the week and I need to order lumber and materials this week so I have to make up the list.     I will visit the journals this week and am enjoying sitting in A.C. for a change.      mark
