Last night Kezzie, Bert and the boys came for dinner before collecting family and friends from the airport for the big day on Saturday.
I am making some of the desserts for the wedding reception and as I needed some guinea pigs to try out one of my ideas, our dinner last night was the perfect practice!
Blueberry Lemon Shortcake
The family shouted a resounding YES to adding this onto the wedding reception menu. \o/
I'm also making a Cherry & Orange Shortcake.
Here's the crew last night, having heaps of fun...
Bert's beard is coming off after the wedding because he has a very important interview with the recruitment board at the air force (and he'd love your prayers of support - thanks!)...
My lovely friend Vickie from Humpty Doo sent a gift to Kezzie, and she loved it. Sweet wedding bells...she said these will hang from her bed always. Thanks, Vic. :-)
Grandson Calab stayed overnight with us while everyone else went to the airport and on to the caravan park with wedding guests (they had to pick up more guests from the airport today and are now off in the church bus back home to Charters Towers to prepare for Saturday's wedding ceremony).
It's been a long time since Calab and I have spent time 'just the two of us', so this morning we left Mr E to his work and headed off to the Tumbetin Tearooms and Palmetum. I'll let the photo diary below tell the rest of the story...
Calab was a wonderful guide through the maze of the rainforest tracks and bridges, and spent a lot of time identifying the birdlife from the pamphlet we had with us.
After two hours of walking we decided it was time to head home so he could have lunch with Pop before Kezzie arrived to take him home again.
This was a memory making day. Lovely. Will do it again. :-)
