A Family Celebration

I was glad I took the photo of the sunny warm day with the blue sky last week, as there has been very little blue sky since, and even less sun! Mostly rain and even hail this week.

However the weather didn’t spoil our weekend, when my parents, my brothers, their wives and kids (all but 1) and my own husband and 3 kids all headed to Burrendale Hotel in Newcastle, Co Down for a night away to celebrate my Mum’s birthday. There were 15 of us in total.

We headed into Newcastle for coffee and ice creams at Mauds, dodging the showers, and managed to get a few photos.   I took my DSLR with me, but only took photos with my iphone! So here are a few pics from the weekend:

The kids enjoyed the pool before we had a delicious meal in the hotel restaurant.  There was some reluctant posing for photos!

There was a lot of reminiscing and my daughters enjoyed learning a bit more about how we were as teens.

The next morning we had breakfast and farewells…….but no more sun – this was the view on Sunday morning

Thanks Mum and Dad for a lovely time away.
