A happy birthday it was

Yesterday we celebrated my 47th birthday :) We left home around 8.00 in the morning. My mom joined us, as well as the 4 kids. First we had breakfast on the mountain.

Than we drove to Ikea which is a 1.5 hour drive (there are only 2 Ikea stores in the country and both are in the centre of the country, while we live in the north). As Michal is leaving home soon, she had a lot on her list that she wanted to buy/look at and Ikea had it's summersale, so we spend quite some time there. I just love Ikea :)


Luck we took the wheelchair for Yael as she could not have walked there on crutches. After Ikea we went to Yael's favorite clothes store Fox where she could spend her birthday money. We ate lunch at the mall and did a few more shoppings and drove the 1.5 hour ride home. I was so tired when we came home around 18.00 in the evening but it was a fun day!
Here are the cards the girls made for me:

Happy Birthday to both of us :) Sounds like a great day. I love Ikea too and we have one just 20 mins from here, it is always packed though, so I think we are not the only ones who love it.
Lovely cards and gifts you received, hope you are not too tired today. Thanks for signing up for my giveaway too.
