Birthday celebrations

Last weekend our whole family, the dynasty as we like to call it, joined together to celebrate 3 birthdays, two 40's and one 16th.
We hired a 13 bedroomed country house near Lyme Regis in Dorset.

We had a huge kitchen to prepare our celebratory meal.

Which as you can imagine was quite an undertaking.

First up is our grandson Ben with his lovely mum, he was celebrating his 16th birthday.

And our 2 lovely daughters celebrating their 40th, no they're not twins, one of them had her birthday a while back.

Lots of presents were enjoyed

A lovely scarf

A new watch 

A new cover for a very much desired new   iPad mini 

And a very honoured photo of our beautiful eldest granddaughter (who hates her photo being taken) and her lovely mum. 

Inwrapping yet another very special present was our daughter Hannah with her eldest daughter Bethany.

This is what the weekend was

From the youngest to the eldest (me) everyone had a fabulous time.

The highlight of the weekend was a lovely nostalgic slide show, painstakingly put together by my husband, of our family's beginnings, it still brings tears to my eyes, just thinking about it.

Thanks to everyone for making it happen.

What a lovely weekend that must have been, and what a good thing it was last weekend and not the one just gone! I love it when the whole family can get together. Happy Birthdays to all concerned and thanks for sharing. That kitchen was fantastic.
