Dewan turns five

I know I have said this hundreds of times...and I sound like a stuck record...but I cannot get over how quickly time goes by.  At the end of April we celebrated my grandson Dewan's fifth birthday.  It feels like yesterday when he was the baby of the three musketeers (Leane, Lukas, Dewan).  Lache and Kobus booked the Barnyard as the venue.  The children always love the interaction with animals.  Here is a glimpse into our day.

He is an angry birds fan...and Lache is fortunate that her neigbour is a wonderful baker

Dewan kyk vir Ouma!  This little man just hates the camera and begging doesn't even work to get him to look at me.

Very reluctant.

The temperature was well into the 30 degrees on this day.  The children feeding a donkey.

This little monkey has lost her first tooth while on holiday in Plettenberg Bay

My oldest son Kobus...with his youngest son Juan

Cousins and best friends

The three musketeers.  It doesn't matter how many other children are invited to a party...these three always end up together.

Blowing out the candles

Time for a tractor ride...

...and I get a gift of a beautiful smile.

The boys discovered the sprinkler in the tortoise enclosure and they were all running around in their underpants.  This must have been the highlight of the day for them.  Wonderful how the simple things often gives the most pleasure.
