Silver Wedding Party

May 18th I had been married for 25yrs. All our family came home to be with us, on the Sat we had a party at our house with about 40 of our friends and family and then on the Sunday we were picked up by a limo and taken to Boston to go on a brunch cruise. we only just made it to board the boat as the limo has a blow out on the front tire going at 70miles an hour ( scary) We had to sit in the limo for 45mins until it got there was a bit of a panic to if we would board on time or would have to go to McDonalds. Well we made it and had a great time. the food was great and you can tell I love dessert as that is the only picture of the food I took. Some of my family are still here my Mother in law when back to England yesterday, My Dad is here for another 2 weeks , Emma, Joe(my son in law) and Simon Jr went home ofter the cruise Sunday ( the limo took them to the airport). Mark and John are here for the summer and then will go back to Florida to collage . Amy still has a few weeks of school. Today I go back to see my cancer Dr, had a pet scan yesterday and cancer marker taken so will get the results of that. Over the last 5 months of not being on chemo my marker has gone up by 15 points so they might put me back on the chemo in the next few days we will find out today.Here are a few picture of our Sunday day out.

John's birthday surprise guest


John is my youngest son and he turned 22 last week and I wanted to do some thing different for his birthday. We had all the family in town for our silver wedding party( that will be in the next blog) so I thougth what can I do and then I saw a flyer in the mall at chick fill a about kids birthday parties so I thought let go for it and  guess who comes to the party, you got it the chick fill a cow. when that cow came in and John saw him there was a look of horror on his face and I could tell he was thinking what has Mum done now, I just gave him the look just get over it I am your mother. We had a great time the cow was a hoot it danced around the house with my husband doing the conga. food was good to. so here are a few of the pictures I took, hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed being in them. Amy loved the cow. she had a great time Dancing with it. Mark and John trying to decide if there mother was for real ( hard luck you are stuck with me), The other photos are of my eldest son Simon Jr, My son in law Joe and my daughter Emma. Don't seem to have my husband with the cow but the boys have him on video and keep telling him they will put it on facebook.

Lots of cups and saucers, cake plates and teapots
Table cloths and a couple of duvet covers
