A garden birthday party
Here are some photos from my great-grandpa's birthday party last Sunday. He is ninety years old now!
The party was outside, in our garden. This is my dad – he is putting up balloons.
This is me, in the blue skirt. I am giving a present to my great-grandpa. My grandma is looking at us and smiling.
Great-grandpa is carrying all his gifts at once. He looks really happy with his family.
Here, everyone is taking the food and talking. You can see my granma and grandpa, as well as my aunt and uncle. They are hungry.
We are all sitting at the table for lunch. Grown-ups are drinking champagne and children apple juice.
And this is my grand-grandpa with his cake. My mum is closing his eyes, so it can be a surprise. They are all singing. I am not in the photo – I am taking it with my dad’s camera.
