haven't finished with lighting up my world

Well, Myles and Colton have been celebrated for their 20th and 4th birthdays respectively.
I talked last time of Myles resisting photographic arrest. Look at this image I found in which Myles is clearly teaching Colton to look away from the camera.



Getting back to the theme of lights; I can't rest my case without reminiscing about the following.

Lovely Minnie Mouse' house...


and the fireworks display down the road at Sleeping Beauty's castle.



...and in the happiest kingdom of them all in Brisbane City Land here is the newly restored domed ceiling in our City Hall.

joined with family to celebrate Myles' 20th birthday

It's that time of year again. Over the next 4 weeks, we celebrate 3 Cooper birthdays, Father's Day and a Wedding Anniversary; not to mention a nephew and sister in law birthday as well.

Today we toasted Myles.
You may recall, he is notoriously difficult to photograph.

We tried.













and tried
 and tried
 and tried

Finally we got a good one.

Happy Birthday dear Myles, Happy Birthday to you.
