Happy 13th Birthday Rachel
Nana and Brendon and I got her Bang. She learnt a bit about this card game at church camp and so hopefully she can get a bit more practice before the next camp.
When she got the borrowed horses from our neighbour yesterday she was surprised at how big there were compared to the cake. So although she had an idea of designing it that she had been thinking about for a while, she had to make some adjustments. She was happy with the new plan she came up with though - so she got extra lessons in dealing with life through that. Things just don't always turn out the way we had planned.
Brendon had unexpected issues at work over the weekend and had to work today - so he met us at church and so we had extra space to pick the girls up on the way home.
Then it was afternoon tea time - and cake time.
Rachel also made a cheesecake yesterday. It looked really pretty.
Then they all headed outside and spent ages out there. I didn't get more photos (and this one was such a bad quality one) - but it's a nice reminder of the fun they had.
Briar came with a bag of dress up clothes and it was fun to see them all dressed up.
The girls all had a lovely long visit and it was a really special day.
