Mothers Day with family and friends

It was such a lovely day yesterday.

After doing Bradley’s party in the morning (photos on my photoblog), we dashed home to have a quick cuppa tea and change and get picnic bags and blankets.

Then we dashed to Walter Sisulu gardens for the Mothers Day concert in the park.  Because we got there so late we had to park MILES away from the entrance and it seemed like we’d walked forever before we eventually got into the gardens and joined my parents and my sister, her boyfriend and his family for a picnic.

We did enjoy the half an hour that we spent there :)

Yip, after all that, only half an hour before the rain started and we had to pack up and trek back to the car.  LOL! It was a nice idea though, and I got some awesome ideas for my picnic birthday that I’m going to be holding at the same park next month :)


Oh well… it was a nice idea :)

So after that, and with tired and grumpy kids, we decided to go to my parent’s house and have some tea and cake… and then after that we opened more wine and had the rest of the picnic… in the lounge :)

It was an awesome day filled with family and friends and loads of fun. Just perfect.

    It looks like fun even though it was short lived.

    I’m looking forward to your 40th next month :)
