Celebrating 89

As mentioned in Friday’s post, we celebrated Motor Mum’s birthday yesterday with a party at the home of one of Motor Man’s sisters.

We all enjoyed the nice weather outside, then came in for lunch and birthday cake.

One of the sweetest moments was when the great grands unexpectedly sang Happy Birthday to their grandmother. I didn’t have time to set my camera on video-mode, so a still shot will have to do.

And she had a little help blowing out the candles.

This is the youngest in the family, making his grandma smile. Little ones are good at that.

We posed for a group picture, and as always, I’m reminded of the saying: “All because two people fell in love”.

 With five little ones ranging in age from 17 months to six years, it was a busy time.  Motor Man and I came home and took a nap.  And I’m guessing that Motor Mum may have done the same.
