It feels like we are in birthday season well and truly now- Ella turns 7 tomorrow on the 5th of March but is having a 3 day celebration!! Yesterday she had her birthday party with her 2 best friends Chelsy and Samantha - today we pretended it was her birthday so that she could open her pressies and have time to play with them - since her birthday is on Monday and she has school and 2 afterschool activities she was worried that she wouldn't have time for birthday fun! Fair enough! So this post is dedicated to DD#2- Ella!!
Here are some lovely photos i managed to snap last week of Ella- she is right at the gap toothed smile stage as she lost her 2 front teeth the week before!
So yesterday with Chelsy and Samantha in tow we headed off to Clip and Climb. None of us had been there before so we were stunned to see it all in action. It was FABuLOUS! Heaps of rock climbs and different climbing walls for the kids to have a go on- the instructors were friendly and brilliant with the kids- after their safety briefing they were off to scale the heights! If you haven't been before and have kids you should GO!! Here are some shots of the climbs and Ella who had no fear was the best of our family- staright to the top of everything along with Chelsy and Samantha who had been before and knew the drill! Lucy took half an hour or so to get into it properly but by the end had climbed to the top of one wall and had a good go at the others! They are pretty high so quite daunting to start with! So next time Lucy would be set from the word go now that she knows what she is doing! Hollie stayed on the ground and had fun running around and looking at everything! Zoe was a no go - she was too scared to climb higher than a metre off the ground!

After that it was home to have the cupcakes we had made that morning- the girls had a ball decorating the cupcakes with sprinkles and lollies and edible glitterpens- these are some of their creations- it was a cupcake tower rather than a cake this year for ELla!
