Kat's Birthday

sunny 32 °C

Today was the day Kat had been so excited for, George has played the day down completely even pretending he had no present so the expectations were not to high but once she woke Kat was extremely excited to see a little bag sitting next to her bed. Opening it up to find a gorgeous ring hidden in a cute little box, George was quick to point out it wasn't a pop box and was purely just a 21st present. Letting out a sigh of relief Kat decided it was time to head down for her birthday breakfast of chocolate sauce and fruit. While at breakfast George let Kat know that as a present from her Mum we were off for an elephant trek later in the afternoon, as she had always dreamed of having an Elephant ride for her 21st Birthday!

The day was amazing and went very quickly but the time had come for the long awaited afternoon trek, Kat was overly excited and was unusually quiet due to the excitement of her Elephant dream coming true. The trek was so well organised with the Elephants being able to wander around as they went along on the paths and every corner we turned there was another beautiful view to see (not that Kat managed to take her eyes off her Elephant for long), it was definitely a big bonus when the couple in front of us dropped some coins and the Elephants picked them up for them. After the trek we jumped off to have photos and Kat quickly spotted someone with a fruit basket feeding their Elephant and was so excited she grabbed some out and ran back over to feed her hungry Elephant. George noticed the mixup and went and brought a their own basket and passed the fruit back to the family who had actually purchased the fruit themselves.

Once we arrived back at the Hotel we quickly had the surprise of a phone call from Zoe who had arrived at Phuket to celebrate for Kat's Birthday and was waiting in the Hotel reception, as you can imagine the night carried on with drinking and celebrating...
