Dan's 26th Birthday!

So September is a busy month for us. Not only is it Dan's brothers birthday and Lauren's birthday but it's also Dan's birthday!! So I did the usual and went completely OTT with decorations. Anyone that knows me knows I love birthdays, I love baking cakes, buying presents and celebrating. 

Birthday Breakfast

My favourite bit about birthdays is making a big cake but we have a bit of a tradition in our house. Dan has the same birthday cake every year....Thomas the Tank Engine....yes I'm serious. 

We both had the day off so decided to go to Alice Holt which is a gorgeous place to go walking, it's also the place we get our Christmas tree from and have done ever since I was little! There are so many lovely walks to go on and a really cute play area for children to play. It was a lovely morning, the sun was out and it was so peaceful. 

Children's Play Area

Why should kids have all the fun!

We have another tradition when it comes to birthdays, the person thats birthday it is gets to choose what we do for dinner. Dan made an awesome choice this year! We went to Oliver's fish and chip shop for a sit down meal. It is without doubt one of the best fish and chip shops to go to around our area. The whole family went and we had a blast, it was so nice to all celebrate Dan's birthday together. He was so spoilt this year, he got some really lovely things. Golf shoes, aftershave, photography equipment, vouchers to get business cards made and also Grand Theft Auto V which he has not stopped playing since he got it!!!!

He really did have a lovely day and was made a complete fuss of the whole day. Thank you to everyone that made it so special.
