Juan turns THREE

My youngest grandson, Juan, turned three this month...the birthday party was held at a venue on a small holding outside Port Elizabeth.  As usual I am going to flood my blog with photos...because I can ;-)

Here is my lovely with his pretty Mamma.

 You can see how much pleasure Leane found in driving on the four wheeler.

 Dewan spent nearly all his time on or around this activity.

 Stefan in action on a bike...

 These two are inseparable...and I have a sneaky suspicion that they had a deal....NO EYE CONTACT with Ouma :-P

 Juan on the 4-wheeler...a little apprehension there.

 Stefan also loved it...but I could also see that he wasn't all together comfortable.

 I have long ago found that I don't capture any "in focus" images of these two if my camera isn't on a "super fast" is just GO, GO, GO with these two little men.

 Why bother inviting other friends when all they do is spend all their time together?

 I would have loved to hear the conversation here.

 Leane and the older children enjoyed the jumping castle.

 ...and they are off again...

 I love this girl ♥

 So full of life and joy.

 The light inside was not too Juan blows out the candle...and as you can see the theme was Ninja Turtles.

 Much eating and getting a BIG sugar rush.

 Only the older kids put on the masks.

 ....ah...eye contact....caught you! again ;-) not, I repeat do not look at the Ouma....

 ...oops...caught again!

 What is not to adore about the friendship between these two little cousins.

...and I am treated to eye contact AND smiles....SCORE!!!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  Thank you for your visit to my world ♥♥


  1. You GOT 'em!! FINALLY!!! They are so lucky to have each other....I wonder if they realise that? My Lucas is just 3 too, so the same age....but he has no cousins at all......friends, but it's not the same....great photos. Adore that you captured the day so fully. I wouldn't mind one of those red lollipops!!!

  2. Looks like a wonderful day was had by all! Love the photos, I delight in other grandparents photos! It is a blessing to see your children's children! I do like the natural shots, but those last few are stunners! I wonder if the person who invented lollipops knew how much kids would love them? It has been a trying afternoon with my hubby sick... I do pray he will be well tomorrow... Ah the moments!

  3. It looks like an action packed celebration, as it should be. My son loved the TMNTs too - albeit, that was over 20 years ago. Time does fly.

  4. Lots of wonderful photo's and you will soon be busy scrapping again with the inspiration from them. xx

  5. Happy birthday to your little man!! What a cutie he is! LOVING all the photos!! They are lucky to have that bond!!!!

  6. I can't believe that these little fellows are three already! They are just precious. Something so wonderful about watching little ones play. Looks like it was a great party. Sweet photos.

  7. I said on the other party but I actually (literally) can't believe it's been 3 years. Where has the time gone?

    GORGEOUS pics!!!
