Happy Birthday to ‘The Poet’ for yesterday was his seventh birthday!
Above you can see the lovely cake, my good lady does like to get a proper cake for a birthday, this time themed upon SpongeBob Squarepants featuring him on the left and pinky Patrick Starr on the right. Great taste and the little chap loved it. The day went well with some presents to open and cards to put up upon the mantleplace and he was very grateful to all who had given him gifts and funds which he has promised to add to his savings for ‘fun later’. We had arranged for a two hour birthday party at the local Kidz Play centre where he, his brothers and twenty other children went on a sugar and music fuelled rampage (no pictures of this..sorry!).
After lunch we decided on a trip to Maidens and then a walk along the beach to the grounds of Culzean Castle estate where a couple of enjoyable hours were had including the swing park and feeding the ducks and swans (on left over party food..what else!). The Poet and the swans are pictured above and a view as I walked back along the hill to the beach and back to the car also so that you get a feel for it. I intend to go back with the children when the weather heats up a bit more as it was a little chilly by late afternoon but its a fine view and a great place to spend a day.
Given his choice of evening meal The Poet elected to go for Pizza which was duly done and then rounded off the day with a little chat to his favourite Uncle James (Jim Brittain) on the phone before heading off to bed. I should mention that he was most taken with the smooth lumps of lava, quartz and granite that he and the small Warrior lifted off the beach. Who needs toys eh!
Now we are seven…its a gonna be a cracking year!
