Big Birthdays

The school holidays were very eventful for our family.

Firstly, le Tour de France. Oh, how we love it. The great thing about it being on during the holidays, is that we can set up beds in front of the television for those wishing to watch the whole stage! I got up and left the house for work before anyone else stirred.

I took this as I left for work.
Bethany turned thirteen right in the middle of the holidays. When I was a child, my special birthday meal was wiener schnitzel, something I have never once made as an adult. Bethany, when asked what she would like to do for her birthday dinner, asked to go to the RSL with the Listers! We have done that twice before, over the years, but clearly those evenings were memorable!

Mum and Dad weren't free to come to the RSL, so later in the week we went to their house, full of Melbourne cousins on holidays, for another birthday dinner.

Mum and the girls made Bethany's chosen birthday dessert, chocolate ripple cake. They also dipped strawberries in chocolate!

Only one week of three children all being teenagers, when one of them became an adult.

Joss' best friend, Georgie, came down from Sydney for the party.

Joss' aunt bought her a glass of sparkles. Later I bought her a glass of moscato, judging, correctly as it turned out, that she would take to the sweet stuff most readily.

We went to Beer DeLuxe, a hip sort of bar in town. There were church friends, family and school friends. I didn't really think much about enjoying it myself, but I certainly did. Joss has a lovely group of friends.

It is almost impossible to have a photo that is good of everyone!
