Birthday girl

Yesterday our Rosie celebrated her 6th birthday, what a fun day it was.

In the morning we iced her cake, an old favourite, The Smartie Rainbow Cake!

Rosie dressed up in her princess dress, we loaded up the car with kids and food and set off to nearby Kyneton where we had booked a fantastic party place called Pass the Parcel.

Upstairs, above a shop, the party went of with a bang! Lots of games, dancing and fun.

I had my support team there, Lucy was so helpful, setting up the table, looking after the kids, just wonderful

It was a real blast, the kids loved all the singing & stories and the puppet show. Rosie was pretty excited about this part and kept jumping up and grabbing the frog puppet! Hope he's feeling ok today...

It was fun watching the kids faces, aren't they at an adorable age?

Sunday joined in too and looked pretty cute in her pirate outfit.

The kids and Mark did a great job getting the food all sorted, we missed Charlotte though, celebrating just isn't the same without her.

I loved the party space, the room was set up so sweetly. Rosie had a lovely day and she is lucky to have such a gorgeous group of friends. Birthdays are often a time of reflection aren't they?
Even though Rosie doesn't turn 6 until Wednesday I've been thinking a lot about when she was born, 
and all the things that have happened since. The happy days, the chaos & the love.

So today I'm just catching up with myself after a huge weekend. (I also just managed to delete some birthday photo's off my camera! Oh no. Does anyone know if there is a way to get them back?) Feeling a bit tired & teary actually. 

But anyway, life is good and we are so happy & grateful to have our Rosie in our lives. She is a real character, a real fire cracker of a girl, showering us with sparkles of excitement, life, colour, love, fun, ideas and endless kisses & hugs. She is such a little treasure. I'm sure I'll be full of more tales of Rosieness on Wednesday, see you then xo
