Sal’s Birthday Party with Her Family.

It’s my birthday next weekend, but last weekend we celebrated with Nana, Aunty Shell, Uncle Michael and Aunty Linda. It was a great day, and everyone had lots of fun.

 

When we first arrived, the boys wanted to help Nana cook lunch. Below is three photos of Ethan cutting the cucumber. I love his facial expressions. The first shows such concentration and determination….tn_IMG_6115 Then a bit more relaxedtn_IMG_6119 Success!!tn_IMG_6120

hen we played the game Aunty Linda gave to Sal for her birthday. Wasn’t it nice of Aunty Linda to give me a game for ages 3-7!!!

It is a game like “Operation” but for younger kids. It’s called ‘Silly Surgery’. It is a plastic blow up patient on a bed. He has a hole in his belly and about 10 blow up toys inside. You pick a card, which as a picture of one of the objects…

Then you must put your arm into his belly and feel around until you find the item on the card.tn_IMG_6264 

Ta-da!
