Rachel’s Party

We basically have a 4 day long party for Rachel. I can’t believe my little girl is 5!! We first had the home school group over to our house on Wednesday. What a fantastic day we all had swimming and sitting out in the sun talking relaxing and listening to the sounds of children playing. I always feel great after a Wednesday. I took my camera down stairs but never actually used it – sorry.

Thursday was her actual birthday

In the afternoon Rafe, Kara, Cameron and Kiara came around and the kids swam in the pool and generally had fun in the sun enjoying Rachel’s birthday with her.

We had her Mermaid under the sea party on Saturday

We then had a braai in the afternoon at Laura’s house and I went out to a club that night – but that is a whole blog on its own!
