Lots and lots of fun was had by all.
And the worn-out guests went home with a goody bag and a sticker book. The parents had a large glass of Pimms.
This is only part one of the birthday. There will also be a trip to the movies, a birthday lunch for just the four of us, and a 'family birthday tea' with our extended family and old friends. I love to stretch birthdays out over a few days. After all the months of anticipation it seems a shame for it to be over in one afternoon, don't you think?
