{the weekend} the birthday one

As you know Lyla and I celebrated our birthdays over the weekend. My parents made the trip from Sydney to join us and most importantly babysit! MrS and I headed out Friday night with my brother to see our friends bands play {Too Soon! and The Lost Day} It was a great night, surrounded by loads of great people. The bands were awesome, a little heavy for my everyday music taste, but so fun to see live. It brought me right back to my younger days. Child-free and in the mood for celebrating, I really let my hair down, maybe even a little too much so. I really suffered the next day, worst hangover ever. And I had to work too. It wasn't pretty. Lots of sleep and some yummy fish and chips helped, thanks MrS you're the best.   

Sunday we took the little ones and the grandparents to the pool for a swim and some fun. We then spent the afternoon with our closest friends to continue the birthday celebrations with more drinks and cake. We had a great time, Lyla loved it and my Mum made a pretty awesome sponge cake for us.

It really was a wonderful birthday weekend. So fun and exhausting. I'm still recovering.

Thank you so much to everyone who sent Lyla and I birthday wishes.

I hope you had a good weekend too!
