Well, little E is one year old today. It’s been a very fast/slow/short/long year for us! A lot has happened, with some touch and some amazing times, so I guess it shouldn’t be too unexpected that we celebrated her first birthday so far from home.
We didn’t do anything too special for her big day, though. Saw some last sights in London before we headed to Basingstoke to spend a little time with an old mission companion and his family. But we did let E crawl and climb around for a longer than normal lunch break by the Thames at the Royal Naval Academy in Greenwich, which meant that we didn’t have time to see the Greenwich meridian marker and observatory! So I guess that counts as a gift 🙂 She also got to eat Ethiopian and Pakistani food today, which she really liked. And eat some fresh strawberries and play with her friend, Alice, who is 13 months old and let us rent a bedroom in her parents flat for the week we stayed in London. Here are a few photos from her one year birthday.
