Happy Birthday to our Son

Finally, I can share these photos.  Our son who now lives down in Brisbane celebrated his 20th last Sunday.  As we did not get to spend the day with him I sent him this party in a box. Took our son a while to collect the parcel and I just had a feeling that from time to time he pops into this blog so didn't want to ruin the surprise.  I spied the idea on Pinterest at some stage. I blew up a few water balloons, added chips, lollies, party poppers, and a couple of presents.  

Another thing I spied on Pinterest was the inspiration to this card (here -  Nice, quick and manly. 

Hope life is being good to you all…..thanks for visiting. :-)
