Collecting those moments...

I have really slowed down life a little by savouring each moment.  On Friday night we had a double date with Kobus Jr and Lache.

We first visited Charlie's Pizza and Pasta in Summerstrand for dinner.  Seriously...the best thin based  Pizza in town and the restaurant has a lovely vibe too.  Then we were off to the movies to watch Taken 3 with Liam Neeson in the lead.  A lovely evening spent with some of my favourite people.

Sunday we drove through to Sundays River Mouth and joined Kobus, Lache, Bianca, Riaan and the children for a day of fun in the sun.

We pitched a gazebo...

 ...and played with Kobus and Lache's new toy.

 River mud is the best Ouma. makes you wish you were small again.

 They were smothered in blocker before they were allowed to play in the sun.

 Kobus taking Leane for a spin. 

 Dewan was chattering non stop while on his wild ride.

 Isn't he lovely?

 Love this girl.

 He woke up tired and was a tad miserable...

 ...and stuck on his normal perch on Oupa's lap.

 K and I taking a spin.

 Very thrilling.

 The children enjoyed themselves thoroughly.

 You can't imagine how much pleasure you can get out of water and mud.

 Leane built a Olaf...yes from mud, not from snow ;-)

 Olaf has feathers and a nik nak chip for a nose.

 Bianca and Riaan.

 This girl is so allergic to having her picture taking.

Lache wanted me to have a ride with her...she is a wild one and we went up the river at 96km per hour...on our way back we heard a beeping noise and we were convinced it was the parks board that was after us for speeding...but it was just the engine alarm that was warning us that we were over doing it ;-)

Another fun filled weekend of saying yes and enjoying the moments.  I think I am beginning to love this.
