Where does time go, Raff is 5 and I feel like life has just gone into warpspeed! We had a lovely time with him on the day, gave him a new bike which he was absolutely thrilled about.
Then the party!!! He had requested a 'Hero party' so invitations were duly issued to 7 dear super-hero friends. Raff wanted to be Batman and this was made even more perfect by the arrival of a Batmobile from Dan and Sarah on his birthday! I put together a costume for Stan and he became....SuperStan!!
I was working at Acqua the night before and they were all due at 10.30 (time was set when I thought I would be working the evening after the party!) and didn't get to bed until1 am so the morning was fairly mad with food to be prepared and Michael in charge of the entertainment. Unlike 2 years ago when we practically had a typhoon at the Beach Hut, the weather was scorching and we had a great time - I think the Supers did too! With Tug-of-war, Michael vs all the heroes, pass the parcel and general running around zapping each other I think we can agree with Raff when he said "that was my best party ever".
How could I forget also Michael's amazing "pin the KAPOW on Batman" with wonderful painting only finished half an hour before kick off, speaking of which the kids and I, plus aunty Jo went off to the beach hut in the afternoon and left 'him indoors' indoors to watch the footie, our first trip to the hut this season!!
