Mothers Day 2011

I had a great time this Mothers Day.

I had a lazy morning with endless offers of cups of tea, breakfast from the local bakery and very excited kids presenting me with some special gifts and cards. After lunch we went out for a walk along the beaches in Newcastle.

Normally I take all the photos and don't often get in the frame but today the kids and Byron took over the camera and I appeared in many more than usual.

I had to have words with Rhiannon for zooming right in on my face, what happened to arty fuzzy shots where the wrinkles are blurred out!
We got fish and chips and ate ice-cream as the sun dipped lower in the sky.

The colours of the clouds were amazing and the kids had a real thrill being on the sand watching darkness descend over the city. I don't think we have ever stayed out on the beach late enough for it to go dark before.

It was like we didn't want the day to end!
Thank you kids.  I had the best day. Without you there would be nothing to celebrate...
