Our weekend in pictures

This weekend was Dewan's first birthday party....and as you can guess...Kobus jr. decided that his mom's house is the perfect party venue.  Having my soon to be ex-DIL as a guest was a tad stressful.
Daddy with the birthday boy and Leane.
Yup...perfect party venue:-)
 Saturday was perfect...sunny with no wind...thank heavens...what would I have done with all these people if it rained.
Little Megan adopted me as her "ouma".
Little Lukas with his little friend.  He was the perfect gentleman, even sharing his golf balls:)
Wynand (middle), Kobus jr (right) and a friend.
Now...just in case you didn't believe me when I said my DH is always fooling the odd balloon:-)
Lukas and Leane...ready to take off.
The kids found a way to get wet.
This is my favorite photo of the weekend.


  1. Looks like a fun time was had by all! Knowing you, you handled the whole almost ex DIL like a lady.

    Looks like you had a super day. Happy Birthday to Dewan. Gorgeous photos which means lots of layouts to look forward to (I hope).

    I also love the photos of your week away. When I saw the photo of the beach with it's rocky coast and breakers I could think of only one thing........I WANT TO PAINT IT.
    Have a great day,
    Hugs, Irene xx

  17. You got some great shots of what looks like a wonderful day! That last one is priceless for sure. However, I love the one with all the little toes in the water.

    I scrolled down and saw your seaside pics...oh my, how beautiful is that?! It puts my area of Florida to shame. I love those rock out croppings. I would love to be sitting next to you on that bench, amazing view and you seem in deep thought.

    God bless you and your beautiful family.
