Not before time we celebrated Max's first birthday this morning. We debated whether we should hold the postponed event on Good Friday, what with the five day weekend and the urge for everyone to get away, but we did it anyway, and many of our friends stuck around for a few hours and postponed their own plans for a few hours to help celebrate so it turned out to be the right morning after all.
The weather was perfect, the food was delicious, and the kids (and grown ups) had a most enjoyable time. After everyone had left, the boys had a nap and we spent the afternoon opening presents in the garden, which I think is a lovely place to be at the moment. Lovely.
An Easter egg hunt, cup cakes, chocolate birthday cake, barbecued food, sunshine, bunting, toys, presents, sunshine, jelly, cookies, chocolate, sunshine, blue skies and a little boy, a whole beautiful year old.
