Another day, another celebration

It was family day on Sunday with a continuation of our “Better Late than Never”25th Anniversary get-togethers. We all met up for lunch at Vella at Waikanae, on the Kapiti Coast.  This meant that it made it easier for family members who live north of us.

The car park was full to overflowing but we managed to squeeze the Astra into a space.  Jenny’s sister Karla and partner Tony were already there enjoying the sunshine when we arrived with Robin’s Mum.  Robin’s brother Gary arrived soon after with Debbie and daughter Suzanne.  We perused the menu and the dessert cabinet while we waited for daughter Nicky,  who had quite a long journey down from Kiwitea.

Our meals arrived, the choices were fish, chicken, bacon and mushrooms, and a couple of very large burgers.  No chips with the burger, Tony was told, “We don’t have a deep fryer”.  Those burgers certainly looked big enough on their own.

As for dessert – it all looked delicious and there was so much choice.  Several of our guests had their eye on the triple chocolate cheesecake and were worried in case some of the earlier diners got in first and ate it all!!

We had a lovely meal together and so nice to spend time with family members for our second “Better Late than Never” 25th Anniversary celebrations.  What a great weekend we have had.
