the day he turned 50...a family album

We had such a great saturday we ate so much! But first me and dad spent a few hours together down the library (i know what you are thinking he's at the library on his birthday bet we had a few errands to run) then we all got together and ventured out to the countryside to a few little pubs for a spot of tea. It was crisp and sunny perfect conditions. My favorite weather, reminds me of the years before i went to uni, we use to venture to the little antique shops in the countryside...anyway i ramble too much.
My sister during the day had popped to costco and picked up this epic frosted cake, and oh my it was the sweetest cake ever, i could only handle one piece. 
I don't think i have ever seen my dad so content as i did today with his family around him, hitting 50 is a massive deal to him, he lost both his brothers when they were both 49 so making it to 50 to my dad is something he never thought would happen (morbid i know but thats life), i love him more than words could ever describe.
