Today we celebrated the birthday of Suzanna, our 6th daughter!
She requested we go to the Speers Pt Variety Playground which is the best playground in Newcastle.
So after dark last night we pulled in to the carpark so that when Suzie woke this morning she found we were already at the playground!
The family ritual of opening presents happened on the bed as usual.
After she played with her toys and coloured in a couple of pictures in her new colouring book they went off outside to play. They started out at the small playground near the Variety Playground, later migrating to the big playground where they alternated between going up and down the 9 metre (about 28 ft) slide and playing tag.
This tyre swing became a boat and their shoes which had be discarded became fish that had to be caught without getting off the swing!
After running all day, they were more than ready for cake.
Jessica lit the candles
Then assisted Suzie with the lighting of the last one which became a tradition earlier this year.
One more birthday left for this year, then Christmas, then we get to celebrate all these wonderful children again.
