Benji's first birthday 

We had a lovely day on Sunday 27th celebrating Benji's first birthday. The boys got up first and made him nice birthday cards and then charged in to see him as soon as he squeaked. Zach was particularly excited and throughly enjoyed the whole present experience especially as the older boys got to open most of the presents. While Ben had some lovely presents the big hit were the balloons.

We headed out for a birthday breakfast where everyone order way too much, pancakes hot chocolate and croissants with plenty to spare.

A quick turn around after the birthday boy's morning nap and we headed off to the Manly ferry for the halve hour ride. There were a few grey clouds and some drops of rain so we headed to Ocean World which Benji loved. He really enjoys seeing animals and fish getting very animated and inquisitive. We also tried out his new reins which he was a bit unsure of, behaving more like a wild dog then a tame baby.

A quick surf on Manly beach and then Katherine took Ben and Zach back to the flat in the car (which i had driven over) while I returned on the ferry with Jamie.

We had a great and very noisy birthday tea with some great cupcakes that despite being away Katherine was determined to make rather than to buy.
