Jasmine's Birthday

This birthday seems to have taken ages to arrive.  But then there it was.  Jasmine is now 5 years old, (going on 30 something.)  We all decended on Karawatha Forest Park where there is a great nature play centre for children.

Water pumps.  Keeps them busy but not too much water comes out.

And the bigger kids looked after the little ones.

It was a Smurf themed party and the 'Smurf Brains'  (blue jelly) was a great hit with all the kids.

This lot of kids are being raised on 'healthy food' so the chance to eat popcorn, chips and lollies is a rare treat. There was one little boy who just ate and ate.

His parents would move him on but next time I looked he was back again.

For some of the little ones it was their first time with these foods and the expressions were wonderful.

And that kid was back again.

Young Rose just couldn't resist the popcorn.

Then it was time to cut the cake and open the presents.  This took some time because Jasmine would notice that some kid was missing and they all took of to find him or her.

Finally everyone was together and she could open her presents.  And she got sooo many.

Each one was discussed and inspected.

Yes, these are mile stones to be remembered.


It is good that you documented the day with your photos.
Children who are not allowed to eat junk food might become binge eaters when they grow up and can decide themselves. I think it is better to have a burger Friday or popcorn Saturday.
