Time seems to have flown over the last three weeks whilst Grandad & Lesley were with us.

Much time was spent on the beach, eating, drinking and visiting a variety of the stunning attractions to be found locally.

The boys have really enjoyed having Grandad around as they don't get to see him too often and may not see him again for another 18 months or so.

Sadly they returned to Blighty yesterday but here are a few highlights from their time with us...

One of many trips out. This was at Mooivallei near Bonnievale on our way to Montagu

Joel 'driving' a tractor at Farmer Koos's farm in Montagu

In the pool with Grandad, a favourite activity!

Enjoying the tractor ride

Story time is always appreciated. Lesley was great at spending time reading to the boys

We went to the Helderberg Nature Reserve for an evening concert where Shiraz (formerly The Dooleys) were playing

The penguins on Boulders Beach are always a favourite!

Grandad & Lesley met our friends at grace Community Church in Macassar

Butterfly World near Paarl was an unexpectedly good treat

The boys really enjoyed this place

Enjoying the views and some bubbles at La Petitie Ferme in Franshoek

Mummy & Daddy enjoyed it too! (the boys were at school)

Grandad took Joel to school for his first day in Year 1. Here Daddy has just brought Eli home from Pre-Nursery at the International School

Getting ready for a treasure hunt at Vergelegen where we had a picnic in the camphor forest

The treasure wasn't in this old trunk

As you can see we had a great time with Grandad and Lesley and it was great for the boys to spend some real quality time with them. Although we probably won't see Grandad for a while we're hoping he'll get his webcam working so we can Skype each other.

  1. You might want to stop posting photos like this. I will be tempted to get all of our pennies together, put the three of us on a plane and come visit!

    It looks brilliant- glad you all had a great time.

    God bless as always.
