It was our annual PTA Summer BBQ this week. A few years ago we sold approximately 140 tickets, now we usually sell nearly 210; that is alot of hungry people to feed.

Last year we were rained out and had to have all the tables and chairs in the school hall. This year the sun was shining and not a cloud in the sky so everyone was able to sit outside and soak up the sunshine.

My kids didn't want to go home when the time came which is a good sign. They didn't win any of the competitions or prizes but they did not seem to mind; I suppose they were having such a whale of a time it really didn't matter.

We had lots of games and things to do to keep little people happy; a swim in the school pool, a Fancy Hat competition, chalk drawing, colouring-in competition, Hook-a-Boat, Lucky Lollypop, Name the Toy, sandpit play, football, all the climbing frames in the school grounds and a quiz, meat raffle and a cake raffle for the bigger people present.
All the PTA pitch in; they cook the food, serve the food, run the stalls and clean up afterwards. It was a very long day, lots of hard work but it was great fun and the children all have such a wonderful time. There is something special about a party at school.

I made these two cakes for the dessert table. There was none left so I guess they tasted ok :)

Well done to the PTA for another fabulous BBQ!
