3rd Birthday at the Farm

As far as Birthday’s go for three year olds, this one had it all. Some good presents.

Hello limited edition re-released 1983 Cabbage Patch Dolls in a sailor’s suit! Say hello to Alanis Piper. They still smell the same as they did all those years ago…

There were cakes seen in pages of the Women’s Weekly Cookbook, bought to life.

There was sunshine.

And a lunchtime party under the wisteria with lots of doting Grandparents.

There was some croquet in the afternoon sun.

Some swimming and then some cake.

And to finish it all off, the Birthday girl pulled out a fish.



  1. I have such fond memories of that birthday cake cook book. Mum used to let my sisters and I pick a cake from it every year. I think my favourite was the ballerina’s.
