NZ: Nan & her birthday

We took my Nan out to her favorite cafe for lunch last Friday:

Then Jon, Bill and I spent the afternoon playing games with her at the place where she lives. First it was about an hour's worth of a game called "Housie" - it's like Bingo. I won a dollar-fifty and then proceeded to lose it all playing the rest of the rounds! After that the four of us played Rummikub.

We had the family gathering for Nan's 90th birthday on Saturday. Here she is cutting her cake with Uncle Neil at her side:
