90th Birthday party!

Hello everyone,

I've not blogged for a while because I've been away. One of the things I've been busy with was my mother's 90th birthday party. 

We asked mum where did she want to celebrate her birthday: in Holland (where she lives) or in England (where my sister lives) or in Spain (where I live). She answered that she didn't want to celebrate it at all. No mother, that is not an option! we said. 

My sister has a holiday home in Marbella Spain, so we all got together there for a little private celebration.
Marbella is very beautiful. The banana trees were flowering. Stunning!

This is a bench in the park made of ceramic tiles. Isn't it pretty?

Then mum (and my cousin) came back with us to our house (also in Spain but 270 km away) and we spent another week together. What a privilege to have  my mum with us.
We had another paella party in her honor.
And did fun things like going to the market and going for a horse and carriage ride through town.
Here is my mum with the handsome driver. 
We saw lots of nice cave houses, which are a bit of a tourist attraction in our area.

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping to read this and thank you for any kind comment you might want to leave. I love it when people comment.

God bless and.... keep scrapping!
