It was my Sisters and Dads Birthdays on Friday the 1st April. The 1st of April has always been quite a celebration in our family, as it also used to be my Grandfathers and my Great Granfathers birthdays too. Four generations all be born on the 1st April (and that is not an April Fool!!)
We were on cake baking duty and I made my 'no fail' moist chocolate cake. My little boy helped me decorate with maltesers and buttons (yum yum)....

A good time was had by all! Then we had a bit of a shopping day on Saturday, visiting or local Farmers Market in Hovingham and then heading into York. Bought my little boy a gorgeous Rucksack from Cath Kidston. He has been proudly wearing it all weekend!!
I was totally spoilt on Sunday...my two men made me the most gorgeous card...
