Today I am going to our Grandson Liam's first birthday.
In Hamilton.   So it will be another day out and about.

Yesterday's party was lovely, and I'll just share a few photos :

ABOVE:  an amazing water feature Khady got off Trademe, it is gorgeous.

 ABOVE:  some gorgeous flowers...

ABOVE:  back in the days when I was a 'potter', I made that bowl.  I was surprised to see Khady still had it!  It did bring back very happy memories.

 ABOVE:  The Birthday Girl.  She had a wonderful birthday party.  
There was an awesome turn out of people at the party, but I will refrain for posting any more as I could get carried away!   *smiles* 

ABOVE:  I took a photo of Stew as a littlie from Khady's 'family wall of photos' and did a quick collage of him and Dante.  I can see a family resemblance, can you? (not around the eyes though)

Right, that's me for now, we have to get sorted to leave for Hamilton.

Catch ya later... have a nice day.


Back in Auckland again, after a really lovely day in Hamilton.
Little Liam is gorgeous, and I loved spending time with him and his brothers and sister.  

When I got home I jumped straight into our spa pool, which is set at 31 degrees C.  Just perfect to relax and refresh in.  Everyone is loving it this summer.

End of Day:  well a really hot, humid summer's day.  A nice day.
