I hope your weekend was fun and you got some chance to relax too. We celebrated something really special this weekend ourselves. Jan's grandma will be 90 years old next week, and we had a big party to celebrate it. Along with the 90th, his uncle just turned 50, so it was a double whammy, 90/50 party.
All of Jan's family got together for this at the Helderfontein Estate in Fourways, where we had a really lovely lunch together in a beautiful venue. Here are some of the pictures.
Some of the cousins playing pool during the day.
The cakes. The top one reads Happy 90th Birthday Mom, for those of you who don't understand Afrikaans. :) The bottom one was for uncle Henk and his 50th.
The birthday girl, looking lovely.
Jan's uncle Pieter doing his speech on grandma Horak. He had some funny anecdotes about her that made us all giggle. Who would have thought that frail looking granny rode a motorcycle, and fell off...
The table arrangements, with beautiful yellow roses.
Some of the party-goers.
The birthday boy.
The kiddies having fun at the party. They were so sweet. Jan's cousin lost her first tooth at the occasion. Here's to hoping the Tooth Fairy brings her a good bounty for that pearly white. :)
Some shots of the venue.
I was there too!! :P
Some Horak family photos. The last one shows my father in law being... well, my father in law. :)
Daddy and daughter dancing. Awesome fun!
I hope you have a fantastic week and that today won't be blue at all, except if you're referring to the sky being blue.
