It is hard to believe that our beautiful Jackson Kevin Reid is now 12 months old! In so many ways it just seems a moment ago that he arrived and in other ways he has been in our lives for so very long. We are so blessed to have him in our lives.
As is the usual practice in our family there isn't simply one celebration for his birthday... there are three! Firstly he has a picnic lunch at the local park. He loved sitting on the picnic rug and indulging in all kids of yummy things. He also got his first taste of cupcakes (thanks Mandy) which he loved. Then this past weekend we all travelled to my Dad's place at the beach and had a family birthday. It wasa great to connect with our extended family and spend time with Adam, Kelly and Liam, as well as Dad. The boys love going to Grandad's place and especially like spending time with their cousin Liam. It reminds me a lot of when I was a child and we used to go to my Nana and Grandad's home and we would get to play with our cousins while the adults caught up. The boys were sad to leave, but enjoyed a brief catch up with Greg, Kelly, Kylee and Mark and their children at the playground for fish and chips. AND then this Saturday the birthday boy is having a little morning tea at another playground...
So after all those celebrations it will be almost time for the big boys to head back to school and for Jack and Mummy to get back into their routine. I love school holidays - the sleep ins (well when Harry doesn't climb into my bed at 5am), the jarmie days and the days at the park. I just hope when my little men look back they love them as much as I did :-)
Love to all,
