Playing at the Youth Crescent Play Park in Gordon’s Bay (2016-08-13) Photo Gallery 22 AUG 2016

Despite the cold and overcast conditions, the girls and I decided that we needed to stretch our legs a bit to close off the day, and so we headed down the road to a nearby park, a couple of streets away from our place here at Country Mews in Gordon’s Bay.

Youth Crescent Play Park is the field’s official municipal title, and yes, it is situated in Youth Crescent, hence the name. It consists of a large green field, with a couple of old kid-friendly play park equipment pieces scattered around, and for some or other reason, a section of concrete pipe just laying there.

Although large sections of the park was rather wet and muddy, this did not deter the girls one bit, happy to finally be out of the house and able to run about!

Naturally, we had to try out each and every piece of park equipment, and all in all it was a pretty fun afternoon out. Jessica got to practice taking photos (with me nervously watching to make sure she didn’t drop my phone!), snapping this pretty nice picture of Emily and I:

And yes, the concrete pipe turned out to be an attraction for the girls!

Finally the cold and unpleasantness of the weather caught up with us, and in order to avoid the rain but let the girls burn off all their remaining energy, I made a snap decision to head down to Sunset Bay Spur, where I could indulge in beer while the girls could get lost in Spur’s play area.

Win-win situation for us all! :)

Birthday Supper with the Girls at Sunset Bay Spur (2016-05-11) Photo Gallery 15 MAY 2016

I turned 36 on Wednesday, and spent the first half of the day with Chantelle up on Table Mountain, taking advantage of the cableway’s free birthday ride offer. The latter part of the day I spent with my two girls, heading out to Sunset Bay Spur, because well, kids love Spur’s play areas.

Sunset Bay Spur does of course have that fabulous beach view, so I didn’t mind too much being left alone with Teddy and my Savanna Dry for the odd now and then, but for the most part the girls chose to hang out with me – with plenty of colouring in and milkshake swigging taking place.

Spur food is Spur food (in other words, I’m not really a fan), but the girls had a ball playing and occasionally eating, meaning that the trip was totally worth it – even if Jess forgot her part and totall didn’t tell the waiters that it was my birthday.

Sigh, I was looking forward to that sparkler.

Oh, and of course, one milkshake was dropped, and two bouts of tears had to be dealt with – Emily over her milkshake, and Jessica who walked into the slide forehead first!

Perhaps next time I should invite an adult along…
