Sian, Cerys,s mum made the Angry Birds cake. It was eggless as 2 of the children have allergies and was so moist and delicious.
There were stacks of cupcakes and I thought that I had taken photos of all of them, these Superman ones were very tasty and made by Cerys,s sister.
Now that the important part has been shared I will show the rest. Junior and friends were enthralled with the bouncy castle and slide.
Kaitlyn was charging round with Sian in full pursuit, with the rest of us taking turns to help her.
Junior had a few solo slides while his pals took a breather.
James was struggling but Sian gave him lots of encouragement.
When she wasn't on the slide Kaitlyn found a ball to play with.
The children had all worked up a healthy appetite and as you can see, Kaitlyn and her cousin Faith were tucking in well.
Junior was so busy chatting to his pals that he had to be reminded to tuck in.
It was a very successful party and there were not too many left overs. Party bags were handed out at the end and a tidy stack of presents were taken home to be unwrapped.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. There was cake, yum.
2. There were children having a wonderful time.
3. I managed to get on the slide without being captured on film.
4. Kaitlyn climbed onto my lap for a little rest and a cuddle.
5. There were NO tears.
I left most of the family at James,s and arrived home by 5:00 after a short detour to pick up some salad for dinner.
Ben had his dinner also and then we went for a long walk on the footpath into Gwaun Cae Gurwen and them home along the main road pavement.
He had his wash with Hibiscrub and will soon have the gel applied and then we will not be late to bed.
Tomorrow, if it is fine, we are going up to the black mountain to explore.
Now my tea is drunk and Ben needs to go out for a last wander round the garden.
