It was the weekend of parties this last weekend.
Friday night, our good friend had his 30th at a local restaurant - the food was so good and the company was fabulous!

On Saturday, another precious friend turned 21, but alas, I was feeling unwell all day Saturday and had to stay home - missing the most amazing party including a pink layer cake and a chance to be in a local Harlem Shake video (hehe).
On a side note, does anyone else find when they try to rest up on their bed when feeling unwell, they are bombarded by either pets, or kids with "urgent" questions? Inevitably there will be one of the 4 kids come into my room with an urgent thing to say every 5 minutes... and sometimes a whole heap of them will be in there! Argh!!
Finally, today my precious Dad celebrated his birthday with Mum, Syms & I and his 5 grandkids. I made him a blue zebra cake and it was so yum (follow the link to find how to make a Zebra Cake)!! p.s. I have no idea what my boys are doing in the background here...
My Dad is one of the kindest men I know, has the best mustache ever and a slight addiction to collecting surfboards (my Mum is a very patient wife) - I love him to bits!

Check out this amazing photo his mate Mike Cunningham found of him surfing at Waipu Cove (Northland, New Zealand) in 1965!!
Dad is currently busy interviewing all of the original New Zealand surfers from "back in the day" (I didn't say olden-days okay Dad?) and they are being continually uploaded on Adventures in Paradise - I've loved listening to some of the stories from the "classic surfing era" (see what I did there Dad?).
Such a fab weekend (apart from feeling icky).
Have a great week people!!
