90 Years Young

Today was Aaron's Nan's 90th birthday. It was a big day with the whole family getting together for lunch at the casino. Nan is a real character and seems really young for her age. She was very disappointed to see me there, as she knew I was due to have the baby yesterday and wanted me to have it on her birthday. I told her I still have a few hours to get it out :)

Aaron's sister, Trudy and her husband, Ashley and their son, Charlie all flew down from Melbourne for it. We haven't seen them for over 5 years, so the boys hadn't met their cousin, Charlie before (he will be 6 later this year) and they also hadn't met Harri. Jalen couldn't remember Trudy at all, only from a photo in his album from when he was a baby.

Charlie was so excited to see the boys when we came in, and came running over and said 'Hello Uncle Aaron!'. They had lots of fun hanging out together. Charlie sat with the boys the whole time and Trudy kept warning him that Aaron and I were both teachers and if he played up we wouldn't be happy. He told us when kids are naughty in his class at school they get a sad face card.

Aaron's Nan absolutely loves Noah and was kissing him all afternoon.

The boys loved lunch, but were more excited about the fountains than anything else (oh and the dessert buffet!). Harri was asking if we brought our bathers so we could go for a swim!

When we got home I heard Harri say 'we are home now', and I asked him why he said it and he said 'I wasn't talking to you Mum - I was telling Noah!' (Noah was in the back of the van screaming and arching and not happy in his wheelchair). He then grabbed Jay and gave him a cuddle and said 'I wuv you Jay'. Funny how some days they drive you mad, and other days they can be so cute :)


  1. I can't believe she is 90! She seems heaps younger than that. To be honest if someone asked me how old I thought she was I would say 75. Good to see that the boys got to meet their cousin and Auntie

  2. Looks like a wonderful day. Such a precious picture of Noah getting kisses.

  3. Looks like a lovely day spent with family!
