It was a fantastic morning tea, despite the fact that I had taken four hours the night before to decorate the 'Thomas' cake!
With balloons everywhere, the Alpacas looking through the gate, eight little kids ran amuck for two hours. Daughter and I painted faces (1x batman, 2x tigers and 1x cat), then all of the parents were involved to help with a game of pass-the-parcel.
Before we knew it, two hours had flown by and it was time to sing Happy Birthday, then cut the cake (no, he didn't cry :) he stuffed his face with icing!!). Party bags were distributed and investigated, before all of the friends went home and a very tired birthday boy went to bed for a nap. With grandparents helping, the house was quickly cleaned up, dishwasher put on, and everyone out on the deck in the beautiful sunshine for a well-deserved drink (or three).
After nap-time, it was time to investigate Grandma and Granddad's birthday presents.
