Dylan is eight

Clelia and I had a lovely day with Bridie and Sean celebrating Dylan's birthday (Friday when we are away)
He is becoming more socially confident and spent time with me, going through the Modern Art book Cresten had got for him him they went to the MoMA
Max who will be 3 the Monday 8th October after we get back, was a happy cheeky dynamo
He also got some birthday presents (we will give him ours when we get back and have dinner on Bridie's birthday 5th October )
Bridie did a fabulous lunch and bought this PiƱata cake 
the cake has 8 candles on one side and 3 on the other 
Both boys look a little embarrassed as we sang!
both blew them out at once!

Dylan was very patient with Max 
The cake was full of smarties 

Dylan very diligently read the messages in the cards before opening the present!!
I gave him a Collingwood guernsey
