Emily celebrated her third birthday today and started the day by opening her presents – with a little help from her sisters!

After dropping Rebekah and Holly off at school, we popped into Palmieri’s for an excellent breakfast. Emily enjoyed her beans on toast and was even given two chocolate profiteroles, as it was her birthday!

After breakfast, we popped around to Sarah’s parents’ before driving to Cookham to collect Mum and taking up our places by the Thames at Maidenhead for our first ever viewing of the famous ‘Swan Upping‘.

In the afternoon, we went round to Heather’s house where Emily enjoyed her Peppa Pig birthday cake, which Sarah had made.

Emily enjoyed her third birthday celebrations with the family.
It’s hard to think that three years have gone by so quickly and yet it’s already hard to remember a time when she wasn’t around.
