We were a party of three - Ewan and I accompanied the birthday girl.
Here's our plane.
Isabelle had a bit of a read before boarding. (You know you've reached a milestone when your daughter is currently reading the same book you are!).
As we turned south we got a great view of the turbines to the west of Wellington. I just managed to miss the shot. If you look closely you can see the turbines under the wing of the plane....er....
There were cuzzies and grandparents and aunties and a wonderful Grandma-made birthday cake.
Candles were lit and songs sung!
And invariably, there was the wearing of funny hats.
Thank you so much to everyone who made the day such fun! And happy birthday to our beautiful girl.
