Our darling daughter turned six on Monday. She had a wonderful 4 days of birthday festivities which included three cakes. We had a birthday party for her on Friday after school with eight friends. We decorated crowns, played pass the parcel and pin the tail on the pony amongst other games. I made the pony cake that Penny had found on the internet which looked easy but took me quite a bit of time to knead the colour through the fondant icing.
Penny got a new bike that she and Craig put together on Saturday. Unfortunately her first ride at River Rocks park was spoiled by an aggressive magpie that frightened the life out of her with a dive bomb. Everyone in the park knew about it!
On Sunday, we decided to open Penny's other presents as Monday was a school day and Craig had to leave early for a flight. Early morning present opening was followed by a breakfast out at a popular cafe near home. Next was a late morning swim at the local pool and in the afternoon, Richard (my brother), Trudie Alex and Lachie came over to celebrate with another cake. To school on Monday, Penny took 30 cupcakes to share with her friends and teachers. Rachael's patisserie is now closed for the rest of the month! She had such a lovely time but was asleep by 6.45pm on Monday evening.
Happy Birthday to my sister, Robyn for Saturday. It was lovely to catch up over the phone for a chat.
Poor Nick is battling a cold at present but is hoping to be better for the weekend as he is singing with his school choir in a competition at Iona College.
