It's a Picnic Party ........

I don't usually manage to attend Melody's Teddy Bear's Picnic but since Widget had a party this weekend we have some attendees to show ....  I know I'm awfully late.......

"Hello, Hello... says Nana (me).... " I do love parties...."


"Yawn" goes Pops, "This is usually my time for an afternoon snooze....."


Some teddies arrived in the most splendid stretch limo's.....


and we all had some games.... going round and round....


... and playing Follow My Leader......


... then we all had to park on the side....


... It was time for some Birthday Cake....
(you have to admit DD did an amazing job of this....- all home made...... a soccer ball filled with lovely chocolate cake)


and jelly's in orange skins.....


... then it was time to say goodbye.... there were some grumpy faces I can tell you....


Pops was really grumpy.... he was just getting into the swing of things after all that cake!


.... only one Teddy couldn't cope with it all..... (too much cake I think!!)


A Teddy Bear's Picnic will brighten everyone's day and bring back the smiles!!

Can you tell I had fun making goodies for the party? 
I wish the other grandies were closer so I could do them more often!

And little Widget LOVED them .....
he ate the wheels first
then the teddy (shhhhh - incase the others hear!)
and finally the chassie

and he tried to kick the cake
well... logical really ...

Pop along to Melody's and join the picnic fun today

Love the fun, I went to my great nephews first birthday and christening last Saturday and he had these teddy cars. I didnt realise they all have different faces. (I ate one too, dont tell teddy).

Hi Fiona.
You have given me the best laugh for the day. Your teddies are wonderful - what a great idea for a birthday party.
But I think you had the most fun setting up the photo shot. There's definitely a storyteller inside you.
I will watch out to see if there is another installment of the teddy tales!

I think we should all pretend we are two, that looks like too much fun for a party.
Thanks for the giggle.

That was soooooo good Fiona. Just loved the pics. The teddies in the cars were just too cute. The cake was amazing and my 17 year old would have loved that for his birthday! Thanks for the giggles xx

I love the teddy cars you made, is there a recipe on line for these or did you just make them up yourself? DS2 is turning 3 next month and I need a new idea...we have had homemade lamingtons in the back of wooden train carriages (made by my Dad) for the last two years! Happy quilting Sue SA
