Jan visited Elif and Mina for 5 days to join them for Mina’s birthday party last Saturday. Although her actual birthday was Tuesday, organizing a party with kids and their parents proved to be much easier on a weekend. Before she went, Jan completed another knitted doll for Mina, this one Ariel the Mermaid, and knitted an extra outfit for Ariel. She has become very good at the knitted toys and is leaving a very nice collection for Mina, she will enjoy the dolls now and memories later. Take a look at what Jan has knitted: (All photographs by Jan)
On Saturday Mina’s friends and their parents came for the party. The weather cooperated very nicely to have the party outdoors. The deck and the yard are very suitable for this kind of party. The kids enjoyed themselves and the parents, watching their kids.
Monday was the school day, Mina had a small, and short birthday celebration at school where she wore her favorite dress again and enjoyed a mini-party before starting the school day.
Tuesday morning was the dance class, here are some photographs from that session
On Tuesday evening, on the actual birthday of Mina, her friend Talula and her mother Myra had a surprise birthday party at Sea Salt for a smaller group of friends. Another nice gathering.
