A double celebration

Australians celebrated Father's day today, but apart from that today was also my son's 30th birthday.

To celebrate both occasions the 4 of us (my, hubby, son and daughter in law) went out to lunch to an Italian restaurant in Fremantle - La Sosta.
Fremantle restaurants and esplanades were packed with families enjoying the beautiful sunny day and mild temperatures of 22C.

The food was delicious but due to the double floor restaurant being full, it took ages to get our food, but the staff were very apologetic and came by once in a while to update us on the progress.


And to celebrate my son's 30th, here are a few photos of his early years.

A cheeky boy at 20 months
Michael was born in Germany, during our almost 6 year stay there. He was always a inquisitive, clever cheeky boy, always smiling and always on the run as soon as he started crawling.
He used to talk non-stop when he started talking too, and he would sometimes drive me crazy with his frequent questions about the world around him. 
He's grown into a good-hearted, caring, respectful and still inquisitive young man, but a lot quieter now...
And he's soon going to be a Father too, with baby J expected to be born in November!


And tomorrow we will celebrate hubby's birthday with a dinner at home just for the 4 of us.

    1. I always have to ask my daughter to remind me of Father's day in Europe, so I can also congratulate my Dad. It's strange how different countries celebrate in different occasions.

  5. How wonderful to share these lovely photos with us on your son's birthday. He has always been a very handsome guy. Guess he got loads and loads of opportunities to learn different cultures and languages, too. Congrats on his 30th. Happy Father's Day, too. Here in the States, it's celebrated in June. I was surprised at the difference, too.
