Happy Birthday Caitlyn!

Today was Caitlyn's 1st birthday. A day to remember what was happening this time last year and to celebrate our beautiful child. We had a family day out today, first to an indoor play centre which Alannah and Charlie also enjoyed and then off to some picturesque gardens for birthday cake - made, of course, by Jane.

Here's a few photos and a little video.

Happy Birthday Charlie!

Charlie turned 3 years old and we celebrated with an airplane party. Ever since visiting the States last November Charlie has been fascinated with airplanes and airports - particularly the "wachine", otherwise known as the security machine for baggage, which he can now play with his Playmobil airport.

As usual, Jane gave it her all in putting on a great party which included learning a new skill - making balloon airplanes - and making an aiplane cake. Below are a couple of videos from the day. The first one is a rendition of the birthday song in the lowest key you have ever heard and the second video has Charlie showing off his new bike.
