hippo birdy two ewes

David turns the big 3-0 today and it was duly celebrated with his friends this afternoon over two cakes and nibblies
Here he is: blowing out the candle watched intently by his mate Charles who knew cake was in his immediate future
Mind you his b'day celebrations started with a pizza dinner last Thursday night at his social group, continued with Nadie on the weekend, then #1 son Stephen stayed over on Tuesday night so we took the opportunity to continue the celebrations with a pub dinner and finally [ maybe ] the afternoon tea today.
Even though Nadie is my youngest, David is, in many ways, the baby of the family so it feels rather strange that he has hit this major milestone.
I will admit to feeling a bit sad this morning ... was going to write nostalgic but no ... sad is the operative word ... remembering his 21st birthday party which was held not long before his father passed away, but I don't think Dave is aware of such things and he has had a very happy day/week from all accounts.

My oldest child will be 25 on Saturday. I don't know how she achieved this because I, her mother, am not old enough to have a child that old!
Happy, happy birthday to David. And to you.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUD!

Hope you had a great day, looks like you did. Did you save one of those beers Chris gave you for the actual day?

catsmum said...

Happy Birthday, David! (a bit late...) It sounds like a good one. Any birthday that included both cake and pizza is a good one in my book!

And hugs to the mom of the b-day boy. I know that some of these milestones can be tough. They bring up so many memories but you still have to put on a happy face for the occasion. Hope things are starting to feel a bit better for you.
