A Weekend Away

Hi everyone, I know I haven’t been posting a lot lately. We had a very busy two months. But it is finally slowing down and I have some time to post about it. 
In October, we went away for a weekend to our favorite holiday place, Brenton-On-Sea, near Knysna. 
We had a wonderful time just enjoying each others company.
Brenton-On-Sea is such a beautiful place

With beautiful sunsets

Bright sunny days

Crystal clear water

Beautiful clean beach

Little birds tweeting around

Little toes curling in the sand

And such a sweet cozy cottage.

We always love playing on the beach and swimming in the sea:

Little ones “fishing”!

Call us crazy, but yes, CJ and I packed our tennis gear and played tennis on the sand! It was quite a challenge as the ball doesn’t bounce in the sand, but we had so much fun!

CJ, Josua and Danika built a water proof castle, 

Daniel could sit in the middle and when the water came - he was safe!

Little Michael fell in the water and was a little shocked, so he curled up against me and we bathed in the sun.It was so relaxing to have him close to me.

When we drove back from Knysna, one evening my mother took this beautiful picture of the Knysna lake.

We also had some friends over for a day:

Little ones eating at a table.

Some of us older children.

For desert we all fried marshmallows over the open fire and then dipped it in chocolate flakes. 

“Never knew frying a marshmallow is such hard work!” Little Michael.

“But it sure is good!”

All the Photo credit goes to my mother!

We had such a great time and can’t wait to be back!
Have a blessed week everyone.

    1. Hi Tane,
      It's so good to here from you again! We did have a great time, thanks!
      At the moment my life is a little busy to still run a challenge on my blog, but I do a lot of baking in the kitchen myself!
      Maybe some day again!
      How are you all doing?
      Have a blessed evening
