What a Lovely Family Day!

Had a fantastic day yesterday at my Mum's Birthday Garden Party! My mum turns 60 tomorrow (!!) and she retired this week so it was a double celebration where all the family turned up to celebrate - It was a fab, fab day. Nothing better than being surrounded by family and friends is there? Here are a few pictures from the day...........

The amazing cake!!

My Aunty Julie made the most amazing cake I have EVER seen. Aunty Julie is my Mum's sister and made it full of memories of Mum's. Right on the top was a Toy Box which my mum is known for - always having a house full of toys for kids! It was filled with certain toys to remind mum of certain children - it was unreal.

It was covered in "blankies" - blankets, which my mum is always wrapping the kids up in to keep warm!

On the bottom there were plaques all the way around with the names of her kids, grandkids and special children in her life all with their own individual picture again of a memory that Mum has!

I cannot tell you how much it meant I know it took my Aunty Julie absolutely ages - But it was so worth it and I just want to say a big Thankyou to my Aunty Julie - it was truly beautiful!

Blog Candy still open in the post below - will be drawn on Friday!

Good Luck
