Roar-some third birthday celebrations at The Gincase

We now have a 3 year old! I know its a cliche but where oh where has the time gone. It’s been a couple of months since Clara’s birthday, but we moved house a few weeks ago so blogging has taken a back seat in favour of packing, unpacking, cleaning and DIY! However I really wanted to share some photos from her big day, as she is still talking about it now.

She celebrated her birthday in true Clara style – with a dinosaur themed party.Β It was her best friend Rosie’s 2nd birthday a few days after Clara turned 3, so they had a joint party at The Gincase, a farm park in Cumbria. They had a dinosaur cake, invitations, party bags and even matching dinosaur outfits!

Our Weekly Roundup #15: Happy 2nd Birthday Clara

DSC_0824This week Clara turned 2. She’s been talking about her birthday for the past couple of weeks, telling everyone what cake she was having and singing happy birthday to herself randomly!

Izzy was at school on Clara’s birthday so Hubby took the day off and we made the most of some rare time just the 3 of us. We took Clara swimming, and then to pick her birthday balloon. She chose a massive Minnie Mouse balloon which then had to come all round town with us. We had babycino treats at Costa before picking Izzy up for the school Spring fayre. Later we all went for tea together and before bed the 2 girls were running around dressed as Neverland fairies playing in a new princess tent. Clara was over the moon with the celebrations and Izzy was really proud and telling everyone that it was her little sister’s birthday.

Our Weekly Roundup #1

Birthday GirlΒ 

This week we have mainly been celebrating Izzy’s 5th birthday. She had a tea party with family, complete with a Ninjago cake, and then at the weekend had a party at the soft play with her friends. She continued the Lego theme with a Unikitty cake and wore her new Lego Movie t shirt. She was very lucky and got loads of lovely presents – including lots of new princess dresses! She kept saying ‘I can’t believe I am 5… 5 Mummy!”

How to make an aquarium cake

A friend and I made this cake for our other friend’s 30th birthday. And, if I do say so myself, it is pretty epic. There is a long standing tradition of buying each other fish themed gifts, a running joke of sorts, so when it came to deciding what cake to make, we knew it had to involve fish somehow.

This week… 24-31 August

This week has been less accident filled, although Clara did get stung by a wasp at nursery. She took it in stride though. And, my appeal for last week’s parking fine was successful, after I emailed the company to explain that Izzy had face planted the floor, thus making me late.

Feeling sorry for herself (more…)
