They Are a Happy Family (So Full a Cakes!)
Look there—too much tucker. It’s beautiful … the small boys, maybe twins. There are a lot of cakes. They’ve been cooking for the babies. They already started to share the cakes around. It’s a birthday party.
One baby is smaller than the other. The mother is taking care of the babies and serving. The mother is called Margaret. They are going to decorate with balloons. There are some yellow balloons. The other lady is called Mary.
It’s happening very close by. They are close to the sea and they need to protect the children from going in too deep. The weather was middling. The father is called Yanni. They started to dance and broke everything. They would have to go shopping and buy more things! They would all dance the Charleston and sing a song.
There are beautiful things—sweet. They would lick the cakes and eat up everything. There’s too much food for the babies. One of the babies is named Spiro. They are beautiful and happy. Nicholas’s mum was there and she gave people fruit. They played games. There was plenty of good drinks and they brought fish from the sea and beautiful vegetables and fruit from the fields. There’s beautiful, clean water and afterwards they’d go for a swim.
It’s always a big party there, and they all live nearby and come to the same spot for the party. Nick’s mother has a big restaurant. She prepared the food and Nick brought the food there by the sea. The children were happy and Nick ate and ate and ate!
An amazing swim, and Amazing Grace. The mother and father are very happy and they are laughing.
