Celebration Saturday


I am finally posting about last Saturday's celebration day. If you missed the post from last week, we had Celebration Saturday because Amelia had results back from her specialist saying she is the healthiest she has ever been in her life! Perfect excuse to celebrate, don't you think?

We went to Bendigo and had a picnic in the park. It is such a beautiful park. We had our wedding photos there (almost 11 years ago) because the park has such beautiful trees and the autumn leaves are divine. There wasn't lots of leaves on the ground but they are starting to fall.




The kids had so much fun running around doing cart-wheels and flips and pretending to be super heroes.



We took bubble mixture and there was lots of bubble blowing. It was a perfect day for that. Quite breezy so the bubbles travelled all the way across the park and everyone looked to see where they were coming from.


Even Tim joined in :-)

I managed to take a couple of hundred photos of the day but the kids didn't stay still long enough to set up for a family photo that I could be in. I love this one of the 3 girls. They were playing trains and stopped long enough to pose for me. Little posers :-)

This is the cake I made for the day. I had grand plans of icing it with chocolate icing and decorating it with a little paper sun and making a little "HOORAY" banner for it. I ran out of time though. And you know what? It didn't matter. We stuck the sparklers in and the girls cheered and were just so excited that we were celebrating, stuff like the way the cake is decorated is so irrelevant. It took Tim using half a box of matches and some careful cake box placement to get those sparklers to light. When they were lit the girls started singing a song they made up as they went along about how great our family is and how happy we are. After all this time of stress and being unsure about how things were with Amelia, it felt so good just to forget all that and be excited about that day. That day. That time. Everything was well and happy and perfect.

Things will change in the future. We know that. But at the moment we are going to keep being excited about this time of great health.

I have another photo heavy post about our Celebration Saturday with the second half of our adventure so stay tuned :-)
