...Where have I been?...Eating Cake!...

Well I have been busy preparing for and celebrating Jacks 2nd Birthday!
And what a busy week it has been!
On Friday it was Jacks last day in the 'baby room' at nursery, so I brought in a cake for him to share with his friends and gave the girls my camera to take a few pics.

Saturday was a very busy day indeed, with two party's lined up. The first was at a local children's soft play area called Birch Farm. This was from 11-1pm, the kiddies really enjoyed playing and then we had some food followed by another cake!

Later on at 4pm we had another party at my Mum and Dads house, which was for Jack and my Mum whose birthday it was on Friday. We had lots of family and friends round and sat in the garden and had a BBQ. Jack was very lucky and had lots of presents but was still more interested in playing in the garden with his cousin!

I asked my friend Yvie to decorate some cakes that I brought from asda and to make some matching cupcakes. They went down a treat! The blue pinwheels for Jack and the Green flowers for my Mum. You can visit here blog here..shes very talented indeed!

So its safe to say we had cake overload at the weekend!

Jacks actual birthday was on Monday and we went to Legoland Windsor. We had a really lovely day although because of the school holidays everywhere was absolutely packed! Some of the rides had a couple of hour ques. Even some of the little rides for Jack had long waits. But it was fine, we still got to enjoy lots of the rides and activities :)

We watched the pirates of skeleton bay show, which was very good.

When we got home Jack opened the rest of his presents! and then we were ready for bed!

A busy but fab weekend!
So not much time for scrapping and I have to say that lately I really haven't been able to get into it. I have been starting and not being able to finnish pages for a while now, I just don't have the inspiration to finnish them. But last night I sat down and made myself do a page and I actually finnished it and was happy with it! Just need to carry on now!
I'm off to photograph it in a bit (when the weather brightens up a bit!) and I'll be back to show it!
I have also had a request to show a more detailed version of my album of cards. I will prep this for some time in the next few days! If you have any requests of things you would like to see on here then please just ask! :D

  1. Wow loooots of cake! And I must admit...I want to go to Legoland :) Love the new blog Anna, very girly and sophisticated xx

  2. Wow, it sounds like Jack had some great birthday celebrations - I look forward to seeing what you scrap with the photos. I'm soooooo jealous of your trip to Legoland - my kids (and I!) would love that but sadly there's nothing like that here in Australia :(.
