This beautiful girl had a birthday and our gift to her was a day at a Star Wars Convention in Liverpool. Papa was pretty happy to go too! 

We booked her in to meet Michael Henbury who played an Ewok in 'Return of the Jedi'.

And Spencer Wilding who played Darth Vader in 'Rogue One'. 

This other beautiful girl had a birthday too. We had a happy day celebrating her birthday and her party...

...was a Murder Mystery Party set in France 1920. 

We went to the beach. 

Sunbaby met her first crab.

The children buried Papa's Father's Day gifts in the garden. 😀

And he had a birthday too. 

We caught up with Mummy's lovely, wonderful cousin from Australia. 

These two don't stop hugging. 

The kiddies have been on the lake all summer.

Ballet Girl smashed it with first at the Area Regatta in the Girls Rowing and she's through to Nationals. Girl power! Love you! 

She's also been picked to become to Lord-Lieutenant's Cadet for the County 2019. I'm actually bursting with pride at her achievements. 

Her letter arrived while she was training for Nationals. 

I had a lovely week with my Boy and Sunbaby. They met some cool animals.

And hung out.

While these three gorgeous daughters had a week of dance school and performed in a musical theatre production.
