Mum's 70th Birthday BBQ

Today Mum is 70 and to celebrate there was a family BBQ yesterday. We all had a great time and it was super catching up with extended family that we don't see so often. I expect there will be lots of photo's to scrap! This one is of me the birthday girl and my cousin Sandra, nice hat Sandra LOL...

Mum asked for donations for the walk rather than presents and that has brought the final total for coast to coast walk in aid of greyhound gaps kennel fund to £2,545!!!!!!!!! next year's adventure is already being planned.

I made Mum a little digi album, which she loved!

Ruby is still and off to vets tomorrow for 2 week check up.

What a fab album. Bet your mum was pleased.

Tell your mum she doesn't look 70.

How absolutely lovely of your Mum (who really doesn't look 70!!) to ask for donations. What a kind, generous and very thoughtful thing to do. And what a super total!! Wow.

On tenterhooks to see what next years adventure might be. I did the South Downs Way (and had a blast) but I do have a hankering for the South West Coast Path. That sais... it's a bit long and has more hills than I think I could cope with! At 630 miles it takes a few weeks non-stop but with the Dream Team smashing the Coast-to-Coast in record breaking time they should be able to polish it off in a fortnight??! *grin*

I bet your Mum was over the moon with her album - a very special gift.

Good luck for Ruby's visit tomorrow.

You've done a great job on the two albums Sue and what great gifts for both of them....your Mums is a fantastic picture record of great occassions, no wonder she was so pleased with it. Glad that the weather held out for you and the bbq went well.

Really hope that Ruby got on ok today.xx
