The past weekend (and some more)

The Princess had an old friend over for a playdate on Friday - both had their ears "done" in the same week. It was good to get the confidence going.

On Staurday morning we took granny Annie to the Hazel Foodmarket - lots and lots of yummy food to love.
Huge French-style crepes.
Beautiful flowers
Portugese milk tart pies

Yummy flatbreads

Pastries to all tastes.

The Princess merely draped a scarf around the bandages, and off she went. A "real" faerie did some face painting on her.

The boys enjoyed the jungle gym and jumping castle

These muffins all have a filling inside. The pumpkin ones were exquisite.

Gerberas for the house

While the Boys had some more rough and tumble play, the Princess opted to do some sand art.

A 6 year old photographer was working on her skills (and keeping busy without being too rough on those ears.)

 On Sunday my mom also came over for a braai.
 It was such a good weekend spending it with Granny Annie.
