And Then We All Ate Cake

The beginning of March is a busy time around these parts. Late night baking and early morning celebrations abound.






Betsy’s party was an afternoon tea and dancing party. Nothing fancy, no trying to get one and two year olds to play games just a gentle gathering with lots of cake.





 Monty’s party was held in our favourite woods. They climbed trees, followed a Gruffalo trail, built dens, ate a good deal of yummies from the barbecue and went crazy for the pinata.






Yesterday we took ourselves off to the beach and Oceanarium. We met up with good friends, dug holes, marvelled at marine life and ate noodles. Lots of noodles.

All that partying takes its toll. If you need me I’ll be having a snooze on the sofa too…


because I know there will be questions: check my Wanties post last week for party gear. Betsy’s hairclips are from Peanut & Pip, Rainbow coats are from JuicyTots and Monty’s orange sweat pants are from Boys & Girls.

    Looks like some good times, I was wondering where that lovely stripey raincoat was from, will go and have a nose (been reading you for a while, thought I should delurk!).

    Happy Birthday to both – it looks like an exhausting but fun time was had by all and Miss Betsy’s crown is fabulous. In the spirit of sharing the wanties, where are Monty’s PJs from? A boat loving Mama would love to know!

      They are Hatley pyjamas from JuicyTots again. There isn’t anything nautical in that I can see but do tweet/email/facebook Abby as she can tell you if they have any boats and potentially hook you up x

    This all looks so cute! Happy birthday to all. I must say, I’m having quite a chuckle at all those kids rugged up for the pinata, outside – it looks so cold! Kellie xx
