Dad's Birthday with GGrandchildren!

My dad's 90th Birthday went very well.  The family from Queensland arrived plus many guests during the afternoon and late afternoon.  My husband and I arrived home to our city about 10pm with the family waiting for us.
We both enjoyed their stay, and had our other son, his wife and child for dinner last night, it's the first time that we have been able to get together all in the same place for over 5 years. Plus two of the children were not born or even thought of.

The first photo is of dad and his 4 great grandchildren.  The little boy he has never meet until that day.
He is also the little boy now 2 years of age that I delivered on the side of the road in Queensland, the mum being one of my daughter in laws :)
The child on the left is aged 7, the one in front is aged 22 months and is their cousin, the child on the right is aged 5 and sister to the 7 year old and the boy.


The below photo is the Mayor of the city where dad lives, plus dad used to be a Deputy Mayor for several years, and before that on the Council.


This photo will appear in the Newspaper.

  3. So pleased that it all went well, and that your father had a wonderful birthday.
    Did you ever do a post on delivering grandson by the road? - it must have been quite an experience.

    1. Thanks Rosemary, it was rather a big occasion and I am lucky to have a dad who can stand on his own two feet even though he's blind.
      Yes, I did do a post on the birth, but no doubt I deleted it.

    1. Thanks F. Yes, it's hard when they live so far away, but at least we get to see them once a year, this year two times :)
