Stefan turned 3 on 30 March and last Saturday we held a party for him, his cousins and his friends. I can't tell you how much this little man means to us. We love our grandchildren equally...but having a little one grow up in your home sure makes a difference.
When our first grandchild, Leane, was born several years ago...we changed our garden to a children's paradise and it is now the ideal party venue.
Bianca decided to invite only the cousins and the friends he plays with at school...that made it eight children plus their parents.
Each child's box was packed and ready and just in case you missed it (tongue in cheek) the theme was spiderman ;-)
The friends arrived and the boys do what boys do...
...and investigated the watering system....
...and drove on the motorbikes like maniacs...
When all the friends arrived the little ones sat at the table for about 5 minutes :-P
The Spider man cake.
We sang and he blew out his candles...note the bottle of bubbles in his hand.
...and then he proceeded to blow bubbles all over the cake.
It would seem that a jumping castle don't work so well for this age group...but Oupa sure enjoyed it.
Juan....my other soon to be 3 year old.
Much enjoyment on the trampoline...
...and in the tree house.
In fact the tree house was such a hit that Stefan took his chair and box and up the steps he moved.
My beautiful Leane...
I am blessed with very handsome grandchildren...even if I say so myself.
Much laughter and some tears too.
Partners in crime...ALWAYS.
I had to save them from each other. They wanted the same toy and got into a fist fight and both ended up crying.
...but they kissed and made up...and by the time Lache came to fetch him...he was hiding in the garden with Stefan. Precious moments recorded.
