With one last piece of birthday cake left in the fridge and a couple of pink foil balloons floating around our house, the celebrations aren’t quite over yet. The Princess is enjoying all the newfound wisdom that four years of life experience brings. She had agreed the ripe old age of four would be perfect for launching a “no-carry” policy. That didn’t last a week. Already, she has emphatically suggested we should carry her “just a little bit”.
It was a fantastic day surrounded by lots of family and friends…the best way to mark a milestone. The Transplant Trot had a record turnout this year of over 500 registered participants. I’d like to think they just all wanted to sing Happy Birthday to Addison but I’m ok if they were really there to honour organ donors and recipients. The afternoon birthday party at GardenWorks was a huge hit. Getting your hands dirty with paint and worm poo? Excellent!
Thank you for all of your warm birthday wishes and continuous love. We wouldn’t have made it here without you.
Elaine, Aaron and Addison
