Living Arrows | 37/53

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” – Kahlil Gibran.

I absolutely love this photo, so of course I had to share it. 
From left to right:
Lexie-Anna (my youngest) Lacey-Beth (my oldest) and Yasemin (my adopted daughter lol) - she's practically part of the family, she's Lacey-Beth's best friend, and sister from another mister. 

Last week, Cathy (Yasemin's Mummy) turned the big 40, and little did she know, her hubby and family had organised a surprise birthday party for her. 

It was such a lovely night, and was lovely to meet all of Cathy's family and other friends, who have all taken my eldest daughter under the wing as part of their family also. 

We went for a lovely meal, in a lovely small but local restaurant. 
Her family had booked a private room, which we got to ourselves, so the kids all had a ball, running about, dancing, and playing with the balloons. 

My two girls made such precious memories with Cathy, and her little family, and we all made some new friends that night. 

Cathy had no idea either, which made it all the better, her face was priceless when she walked into the room, and seen the decorations and everyone waiting to celebrate her big birthday with her. 

The food was delicious, the staff were super friendly, everyone was getting along, laughing, giggling, and looking through all of Cathy's photos from childhood, right through to her mummy days. 

A lovely, relaxing night, with great company, and my girls enjoyed themselves just as much as I did.  Definitely a memory to cherish forever, with our new found friends, and adopted family!
