Spring Sunday

As a family We suffered a very sad loss late last summer and as I'm sure happens in all families different people deal with their grief in different ways.
My youngest sister is only 9 years old and she seems to have found great comfort in the church, so much so that she decided that she wanted to be christened. always happens in our family ...any excuse for a party! 
Honestly We can party with the best of them at any occasion, birthdays, weddings, funerals, the last episode of a favourite TV name it,We party for it.
Not that I'd like anyone to think We're a bunch of drink sodden ravers...its all about great food and great company for us, a chance for everyone to catch up since they last saw each other. There's always tears and laughter and usually a bit of arguing amongst the kids!
So anyways..this Sunday was my lovely little sisters christening and epic party afterwards.
The sun shone for us and the weather was warm.
The food was delicious...
and the company was awesome...
I just love it when we get together as a huge group of family and close friends.

 There was lots of this.

  and lots of this!

It really was the perfect way to start the spring/summer season off and I hope the lovely weekend was the first of many more this summer.
Hope everyone else had a lovely weekend too.
