an 102nd birthday celebration

 Not many people live to the ripe old age of 102.
This weekend we had the pleasure of celebrating VCH's grandmother's 102nd birthday.

When you get to 102 your birthday becomes a grand affair.
On Monday the aged care facility had a party for all the residents who have a birthday in July.
Friday saw a special morning tea for her- I couldn't make it but VCH went along and said she had them all in stitches- she is a very funny lady and has a keen sense of humour that is still going strong at 102!
Sunday- her actual birthday we headed off to a nearby village and had lunch at a historic pub that overlooks the river. 
With lots of family there it was a lovely time and the kids had a ball.

 All the great grandchildren that were there.
She now has 3 great great grandchildren, with the latest one arriving the day before her birthday!

 five brothers and one sister with Great Nana.
