Sweet September…

29 Sep

Sunflower from our garden. I was curious to capture a honey bee with the flower. To my surprise there was a bee which visits this flower every day.(not sure though was it a same bee)

September month hosts two important anniversaries in our family. One is our Wedding Anniversary and the next is Riya’s Birthday.  We decided to go to Paris to celebrate this occasion.  A busy capital city filled with full of history, tradition, modern,Fashion and what not. One place which we want to visit every time we are in Paris is the mangificient Eiffel Tower. We made it to the tower on our wedding anniversary. It was amazing to see the whole city view from top of Eiffel Tower.

A Chiffon cake with butter cream icing specially made for Riya and her KG friends.

On Riya’s Birthday, we visited Disneyland Paris. Not only for the children, even for parents it is a great place to spend a day or two. Some of the attractions Riya liked very much were Sleeping Beauty Castle, Big thunder Mountain, Little World and the Parade. The best part is whatever ride was interesting for us we did couple of times, though Riya insisted to go for more time. As the time was running,  we finished with the Parade. For children, how much fun it would be looking at their favorite cartoons dressed up beautifully and to see them in real. Mickey,Minimouse, Winnepooh and team, Disney princesses, Lion King, Mermaid and more. Riya was screaming looking at the characters and indeed was very exited to see them all. At the end of the day she doesnt want to go back home. Hope, it was a great Birthday gift  memorable for years to come.

The cake for feeding 60 people in Riya’s Bday party. Homemade sugar candy’s were turned in to garden and waiting for the final touches. Riya helped me in every layer of  cake.

This time she chose party theme as Tom & Jerry and it  is her recent most favorite Cartoon. The roses where made up of Almond sweets and Marzipan. The characters where made from Butter cream icing.

As usual, this time too Riya had celebrated  three Bdays. One with KG friends, next in Disneyland and the last one with all our friends. This September was a milestone as she turned 6 years old. she left KG and joined Primary school. In Germany it is a  tradition to send children to school with school cones, which is followed for long years. Parents has to fill up the cones with all the favorite things of  child. For Riya ,it was some chocolates,fruits, books, CD’s, toys(:-) it is a big cone). It was great to watch her and her friends carrying the school cones on the first day of school. It is already second week in school and good to see her enjoy this new world too.

Last but not least, the blog writer has been awarded a full time fun. I will very soon start to work in a popular German software company. Lot of good things in this September. Thanks to all your wishes.
