We had a fun weekend filled with friends!
It started already on Thursday, when we met some friends at the dairy farm for lunch. Gosh, how the little people adore the open space there! They ran about, looked at chickens, cows and calves, ate fish fingers, and just generally had a good time. When we had to leave, and Mia realised we were headed towards the car, I had to pick a lil tantrumming body up and haul her to the car with promises to come back to the farm soon!
Then, on Saturday morning we went to a fourth birthday party, nearby here at a farmyard venue. The kiddies got to feed the chickens, ducks and goats, and went for a pony ride. Super cute, fun, and Mia loved it!
On Saturday afternoon, we went to a third birthday party, at a pretty tea garden venue in Joburg. Mia had fun playing on all the jungle gym equipment and swinging.
(Thankfully, she was so tired when we got home on Saturday at noon, after the first party, that she had a good 1.5hour nap before we left for the afternoon party!)
Then, on Sunday, we met our special friends and fellow blogger, Rox and Layla, at a nice lil coffee shop nearby here, that has a small water fountain that kids can splash in. Oh, what fun the two girlies had! These two little girls are such cute friends, it's so nice to see the interaction.
While Rox and I could sit enjoying something to drink and a bite to eat, (well, mostly sit... sometimes had to run and apprehend a little girl headed towards the car park, or to rescue shoes from the water fountain) the two girls splashed, laughed, and had a few sips of pink milkshake every now and then. When we were finished, and changed the girls into dry clothes, they took a spin on the animals-on-wheels, that you have to use your legs to propel forwards. They sort-of got the idea of the motion, but mostly we had a bit of a workout in pushing them around the fountain. ;-)
All in all, fun was had by all!
We ended off the weekend with an early evening braai on Sunday, just to spend some time relaxing with Wyn too. I think he had a nice relaxing weekend in front of the tv, being able to watch what he wanted to for a change, while we gallivanted all over the place!
