Happy Birthday Grandpa

Posted by MANDI at 8:57 PM
It's just birthday city here in Red Dirt! It's Grandpa's birthday today and we are thrilled to be able to share it with him. He took us all our for a lovely meal tonight - I totally forgot to get any photos but the meal was delicious and it was such a treat to not cook or do dishes.

We spent the day at Offspring #1's first ever school sports day. It was so much fun - they had 12 'stations' that were everything from an egg and spoon race to a dress up relay and then a bunch of just-for-fun ones like bubble blowing and stilt walking (on tin cans). The kids were in 'teams' and moved around all of the stations in their team. The kids had an absolute ball (and the parents did too!).

Dress-up relay. I'm so glad to see that the bag and shoes match LOL

At the end of the activities the Principal came and presented 'medals' to all of the kids. They had "I'm a good sport" printed on cardboard with the school and the date and were strung of curling ribbon and each team stood up the front to receive their medal and we all clapped and cheered.

So... a wonderful day, a lovely evening and a happy birthday for Grandpa.
