Happy Birthday to Oliver

Cannot believe that dear Grandson Oliver is 4 years old tomorrow. We gave him his birthday present early as Granddad was being admitted to hospital. It was a real hit - a kit which gave him the choice of building 5 different vehicles. The first he assembled was this tractor and he just loved the battery operated screw driver. Today he is enjoying a 'tennis party' with his friends.



Then there was the birthday card that Grandma made depicting his current fascination V*W ca*mper vans
as on his teashirt

Happy birthday to dear Oliver. Yes, those years do fly by so quickly.

I am so glad to read about the outcome of Alan's testings. I can imagine the tremendous relief for all of you. It will be so nice to resume a normal life once more. A scare like that always makes us realize even more the blessings that we have in life.

Well, Happy Birthday Oliver!

I love that gift. I think I will search for one here in the States and set it aside for a couple of years for my grandson.

I hope someone frames that card for him. How cute and thoughtful.

I am thrilled you and Alan and get back to some R&R. Dan and I are now on week two and the rest is doing us both some good.

That is a gift that every little boy would enjoy for sure. It seems they all love to tinker and put things together and cars and trucks are always a hit.
