Happy Birthday Papa!

Happy birthday to who?

Getting ready to blow out the candles.... again!

We celebrated Papa's birthday a little bit earlier this year. We decided to make the most of the opportunity that Sachi & Mark & Micah were visiting so we planned an evening outing of ten pin bowling followed by mom's homemade sukiyaki.
Key word: PLANNED!

Everyone ended up sleeping (incl the birthday boy) so we missed out on bowling but had a yummy dinner instead followed by yummy choco cake from Nada.

Micah had a great time blowing out the candles again and again (we had to relight the candles at least 4 times!) and Isla was fascinated by the singing & candles. Poor Papa didn't get any presents - I guess he will have to wait until his actual birthday for that!

My lil cousin Patileti Mikayla Auva'a was born on 9th June to proud parents Aunty Bex & Uncle Jason. We are hoping that these two gals will be the best of friends!

Isla on the plane ready to take off (only screamed a few times!)

We all went to Auckland last week to visit Mama. It was great to see the cousins, aunties, uncles & family members again - a bonus was that Sachi, Mareko & Micah flew over from Sydney so we got to hang out with them as well.
Everyone is doing well... the littlies are not so little anymore and there's a whole new generation of Mulitalo youngsters taking over! Mama is stil as sharp as a tack and was cracking jokes, asking questions & posing for photos. Isla LOVED being around everyone and had a blast. Can't wait for the next visit.
