I just wanted to wish all our Cuties a blessed Easter.

Today it's our grand-daughter Ophelie's 7th birthday, can you believe it? We are all off to a Tree-top adventure climbing park. Thankfully the weather is perfect and with 15 children and their siblings, plus parents there's going to be a lot of laughter, fun and noise!

God bless you all, love Chris

Wow! What beautiful children and WHAT A CAKE! Any little girl would be over the moon for one like that! Amy, you did GREAT! Sometimes we feel like we know each other's grand children & children! Happy happy day, little one!!

This is for Toogie as she wanted to see what the tree climbing was like.

This isn't Ophelie, but you can see the logs that they walk on, this is just one obstacle there are lots of other walking items, logs on point, mesh nets, flying foxes etc. etc. It's great fun. Very safe, as everyone is harnessed to the support wires. Love Chris

Thank you Chris for the explanation and added photo. I had seen the harnesses attached to the kids when they were all sitting together and their helmets that why I thought it may be zip you will have to explain what being on a flying fox is....I am laughing at myself . I was thinking I sounded like my cousin Bridgett when we were little. I remember my mamma saying Bridgett never ran out of question!-lol

Thanks Lynn, yes, I can't believe how the years have gone by. The same to you for Easter, love Chris

Happy 7th Birthday to Ophelie!
Chris I looked at your photos first and I picked her out immediately, then I read the comments, and I was right. She looks so much like you.
I also read how the kids ate everything after working up such an appetite.-lol I know they had a ball. Was it zip lines and wall climbing?

Thanks Toogie, I'm glad you could pick her out of a line, it's funny I can't see any resemblance, but obviously there are genes passed down.
No the kids are in a harness and they are attached to a strong metal rope that is attached to trees half way up and there are all sorts of steps to climb on the scariest one is logs that are suspended. I'll add a piccie up the top of the section I'm talking about. Happy Easter, love Chris

Thanks Miss Lillian, and many blessing being sent to you and Ron on this most Holy Day. We did have a lot of fun I'd love to have a go as there is an adult walk in the trees too. You are harnessed to the support wires and a lot of the adult one is just like being on a flying fox! Happy Easter, love Chris

Good morning Gerry, it was a beautiful day and Mum had a great time watching all the ankle biters!!!!
The eye is fantastic. Wouldn't even know I've had it done, but I can read the newspaper, see the computer without squinting etc. It's amazing! We have the girls and Mum over today for lunch. Love Chris

The kids look like they had a great day. Amy did a wonderful job with the cake, did it taste as good as it looks.

pennifold by pennifold 15 Apr 2017

Thanks the kids (18 in total) all had a ball, came running down from the trees, sweaty, thirsty and ravenous!!!!! I was told the cake was delicious. I can't eat it as there is Soy in the flour. Amy is a brilliant cook! Thanks Marian. Love Chris

Thanks Caroline. It was an awesome day, the sun shone all day and the kids had a ball and came running down for food aftet their 2 hours of climbing the trees. Everything we made was eaten bar a bit of salad! The cake Amy made for Ophelie was amazing. It was a Unicorn. I'll add a picture later. ❤️ chris
