BIG BALLS.. A BIRTHDAY... AND DAY 2!

When we were at Sylvia Park yesterday, Sandra kindly gave the kids a turn in these big inflated balls! The kid had to climb in it while it was deflated, get zipped inside then the man filled it up with air and off they go!
They really LOVED it....

AND it made them nice and tired... *smiles*...


GRIFFIN got so hot his ball got all steamed up inside, and when he climbed out he was covered in sweat. WHAT FUN.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Brylee, who is 9 today! Wow the time flies.. before we know it she will have left home (Doing a little happy dance I am... snigger).....

It is DAY 2 of my GIVEAWAY: today's offering is:

This small convergence quilt.. made by ME, held up by 'ESTEEMED WW LEADER' Sandra! Don't forget to leave a comment to be in to WIN.

I will be back later with a couple of photos of Brylee opening presents and what-have-you!

Wow we've had a busy day!

We went out to the mall .. had a lovely lunch, did some shopping...came home.... then when Stew got home we went out to dinner.

ABOVE AND BELOW: Brylee opening her presents and cards.

ABOVE AND BELOW: out at dinner...

When we got home from dinner I popped over to the neighbours... they had their first grandchild arrive on Wednesday night... a wee boy... so we ended up celebrating his arrival and Brylee's birthday in their house... with a few wines and birthday cake!

Finally home now... and it's....

End of Day! nite nite.

  1. Oh wow I want a go of those ball thingies, they look fun, but I think I'd spend all the time on my bum in them and break an arm or something! What's a convergence quilt? Anyway, it is lovely (as all your stuff is). Wish I had a talent for something, just got a talent for doing nothing!!!! XCathy

  16. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE PRETTIEST 9 YEAR OLD GIRL IN THE WHOLE OF NEW ZEALAND!!

    Are those ball things only for kids?

    And you STILL haven't told us what you're having for breakfast!

    I bought the book on convergence quilting after seeing yours. Can't wait to have a go when I find the right fabric.
