In case I wasn't already quite sure I have the coolest inlaws in the whole wide world...
Yesterday they played host to a 'Madhatters Tea Party' for their nine grandchildren!
The kids sported their 'mad' hats (I was going to make one, ran out of time and bought Fern's from the $2 shop) but nanny and poppy outdid themselves with full fancy costumes:
Being such a large family, we don't get many opportunities these days to converge together but Fern adores her cousins and was totally in her element. Cake! Lollies! Green cordial (ok, I drew the line at that one, I'm the one who has to get her to sleep!), party blowers...
Fern was obsessed with her blower... except she couldn't quite get hers to make a 'toot', so she just blew it out and made her own little toot noise!
The table looked so sweet, I forgot to get a pic of all the little cakes and things (probably too busy stuffing my face):
... and there was even a gorgeous little shetland pony named 'Bunny' borrowed for the afternoon from a neighbour for the kids to ride:
... best of all, it was such a lovely sunny Autumn afternoon and despite the fact that all the kids were sugar-laden and missing their afternoon sleeps I didn't hear a single tear all party! A success!
How did your weekend pull up, did you do anything spesh?
