Two for Two-sday - smoking with Oupa

and 5/365:

This morning Oupa was puffing on his pipe and Little man L went to sit on his lap for a cuddle. The play dough cutter in his hand became an instant play pipe. I caught the two without them noticing it and immediately thought that I should edit it to sepia as it would suit the pensive mood.

Just 3 hours ago we dropped of Ouma and Oupa at the airport. It's been a great visit and I will really miss them, especially getting up at 5 tomorrow morning with the kids as the last week or so I had the chance to go back to bed and sleep a bit more. That was heaven! Also the afternoon naps wil be greatly missed, as sharing cooking responsibilities. They also gave me some great moments with Hunter and we managed to fit a date in as well as a date with my little princess to see Alvin and the Chipmunks 2.

Some highlights from their visit:
