Birthday get together

Last week was my birthday, and we were lucky enough to be able to get together for lunch with both our sons and their partners. The weather was perfect and after a very tasty lunch in a gastro pub we went to Polesden Lacey, a house owned by the National Trust, for a few hours in the afternoon. I managed to grab a few photographs.

The back of Polesden Lacey, which is the house where the late Queen Mother spent her honeymoon, and incidentally where Christopher and I spent our honeymoon. Though she was in the house and we were in a tent in a campsite set in the grounds!

This is the view you'd get if you were standing at the top of the steps in the previous photograph looking out. Stunning, isn't it?

Christopher took this photograph of us in the grounds. I'm the little munchkin on the right, with Alexander (number two son) next to me, then his partner John, then Oliver (number one son) and his partner Laura.

Belated Happy Birthday!
I was so impressed that you spent your honeymoon at Polesden Lacey and then laughed when I got to the tent bit:-)

Looks like a beautiful place and how lovely that you can boast that you honeymooned where the queen mother did :)

Happy belated birthday, Amanda! What a beautiful place. Sigh.... I wish someone had offered to take all your photos together so you could have a family portrait. Ah well... next time. :-) Gorgeous photos!

Lovely family picture (o: They're always the best when you are (almost) all together.
