When planning this trip there were two big ticket items. By that I mean tick-it.
One was taking the kids to Turkey, especially Pamukkale….tick.
The other spending time with my Granny and being here for her 93rd birthday….here is the tick.
So how wonderful to be here and for her to have her great-grandchildren from NZ (well just a few of them- it would have been great to have the others here too).
The kids helped out, Charlie made the cake, Ollie iced it….Hannah helped eat it.
The birthday party was greatly enhanced by the arrival of two other boys who made up a enough of a gang to play some great games….A treat for Ollie and Charlie as we haven’t met up with too many other kids on our travels.
The party expanded onto the next day of more eating and plenty of cards and bananagrams…..
As fun as parties are having the chance to just pop in to visit Great-Granny has been a real delight for us all…..
