happy birthday honey

We made DaddyB a Breaking Bad inspired breakfast in bed...

and celebrated with friends at home with an afternoon tea party (which sort of went till midnight).  It poured with rain that afternoon which thwarted our backyard plans but didn't really seem to matter much in the end.  Fi and Matt brought a delicious cake (plus a special dairy free one for R) and it was lovely.  The kids were sad when all of the other kids went home, we had 15 here at one count, which may be the most we've ever had!  We tend to have other families over but not en masse and it was actually quite nice.

star wars reads day

So apparently this is a yearly event at libraries and book stores all over the world.  Who knew?  Our library was transformed into a Jedi Library.  Filled with all sorts of Star Wars books, graphic novels, non fiction, craft books...  We brought quite a few home with us.


There were people dressed up, books were read aloud by a costumed librarian and then the kids did lots of Star Wars themed crafts while soundtrack music played.  It's amazing how familiar music really makes you remember films.  And it's quite nice to have music in the library too.  Think the boys are keen to do it all again next year.

top trumps


I thought they were so cute the way they were playing Star Wars Top Trumps together, passing the cards back and forth with their toes.
