Birthday Party

This year Cherub badly wanted to have a "real" birthday party. She wanted a fairy theme ...

... and a bouncy castle (inflatable) in the garden. This is always a bit risky with British weather, but we took the gamble and it paid off. Not a spot of rain all afternoon, then it poured down in the evening after everyone had gone home.

Bouncy Castle

At this age it makes for a very easy party that the children love - this time seven little people and four big girls (Angel and Star and their friends) all had fun bouncing. So did a couple of adults, but mercifully nobody took pictures!

Wasn't she a cute bouncing fairy? (Easier with no wings!)

Sliding was good too, and so was playing in the swingboat, which you can just see at the edge of the picture (I forgot to take a proper photo).

Star and her friend L appointed themselves official party organisers and did a great job, preparing all the food, baking gorgeous pink decorated fairy cakes, organising games and generally looking after the little ones.

Cherub wanted the same chocolate caterpillar cake as last year (bought, not made!).

What a perfect party! And what fun for Mom to have such great party organizers!

But isn't Cherub still a baby???

Good times was had by all. The setting looks nice. Few things can beat the concept of fairies, magical.
