Andrew’s Big Birthday Gift

We already have 2 kids that have left home and now live in the city and we know these moments are not nearly often enough.

Abi just got back from Europe a couple of weeks ago. We are so glad to have her back.

Last weekend was the first time, since Christmas, we have had the whole family together. Abi had just flown in from her travels in Europe, Sam had picked up Jenna down from the Auckland Airport.

All arriving in time for Dad’s Birthday.

What a great weekend it was! We all slept together in the yurt.

As if to celebrate the occasion we had a Hungi with a group that was up for the weekend. This was followed by a trip down to a friends house for her party and a lamb on a spit.

The next morning me and the girls made a half dozen birthday pies for Andrew to share with everyone. Thanks to …. who sent us half a dozen pie tins from America! Only a small bit of pie was left in a tin for Andrew to smuggle back into the yurt for a mini feast of his favourite dessert.

A great weekend.

One of those great times when your smile goes deep down inside from the top of your head to the tip of your toes.
