Marisah turns seven!

Before I update the last 10 months in 10 paragraphs or less I wanted to continue my diary of blogging about my kids birthdays as I have done over the last five or so years.

Already I enjoy looking back at what I wrote and the photos and know that the enjoyment will only increase as do the years so I really want to continue documenting these milestones. Here are her previous birthdays that I blogged about:

Marisah turns six
Marisah turns five
Marisah turns three
Marisah turns two

But this blog is all about her turning seven back in May (2014).

May is one of only three months of the year in Kununurra when the weather is nice enough to enjoy being outside. So we made the most of it with a gathering of friends for some birthday cake, food and games on the lawn starting with cricket and ending with the ‘thong game’ – that is flip flops to you American readers!

Everyone enjoyed the afternoon but most importantly my smiling, cheeky monkey Marisah had a blast. She is growing up quick and has developed into a real character who loves to have fun and joke around but also has a serious and very lovely way of loving and being concerned for family and friends.

I will let the photos tell the rest of the story.

Ariya stayed up late the night before helping Seerung decorate the cake. Seeing as it took up half the fridge we could not hide it from her until the party so showed her in the morning. I think she liked it!

Time for games in the front yard around the lake. We were all pretty pooped by then end of the day!
