Saxon's 90th birthday party

Saxon Brooke - a remarkable lady

the flowers

Well Sven went overseas but life in Australia goes on - today we travelled to Forrest and collected Jasmine from competition in the 24 hour mountain bike race and took her to Sven's grandmother's 90th birthday party. And an amazing affair it was too - 90 year olds are getting pretty young these days. And we enjoyed the stories and the laughter. The official pictures will go into the album - but for the record the photographer balanced on the fence to get the group shot.
you have to be an athlete to get a group photograph at a 90th

not bad after three hours sleep and a muddy mountain bike ride

David and Jasmine in deep discussion

We heard some great stories and toasted the birthday girl in style.
