What a weekend!

what a wonderful weekend of celebrations! We had lots of family arrive from around NZ, and some from Australia to help us all celebrate rowing boy's (Cam), engagement to French Chic (Aka Christelle)we started off the weekend festivities with a family dinner on Friday evening at our favourite restaurant "Ironic",
.....where we took over the whole restaurant for the evening, it was wonderful having everyone there together, Jan (youngest daughter & sister) came from Perth, WA.... pictured here with me...
and Fiona, older sister (and No1 daughter) came from Wellington....

as did one set of grandparents, the other living here in Dunedin.The food was absolutely delicious, and as for the wine..... what can I say!

It was a great time for family photos..... and boy were those cameras flashing! This is me, Janet, and my youngest sister, Vicki...
and French Chic's mum, Jean, sister Jacqueline, and Jean's partner Rob... and French Chic of course...
and this is more family from Wellington & Wyndham in the deep south..... Nana, Aunties and cousin
I'm about done here, I don't know how many times I have tried to upload photos tonight, but things are just not working so well, and this has crashed twice, getting tired, frustrated and annoyed so will stop here - you get the idea of what a fun time we had, will be back tomorrow with photos from the Saturday night engagement party which was just as much fun!

have fun!
