Bright and early on Thursday 9th August we left on what is now an annual family holiday. Usually we rough it out in a mountain cottage on the Bainskloof Pass. This year, however, with two new(ish) babies, we thought it best to go somewhere a little more kitted out, so to speak - and what a good spot Papu found: a beautiful house in Betty's Bay, warm, cosy and overlooking the ocean. Even though it was still pretty cold, we all had a pretty good time - as I'm sure you'll be able to see in the pics below.
(these are only some of the 200+ photographs that were taken!)
Packed and ready to go
No chance of us fitting in one car anymore!

An added service: the babysitters club

No outing with Papu would be complete without a braai!

I'm not sure there are many tables we can all fit comfortably around anymore
Can you imagine what each grandchild must be thinking?
Papu and Yaya couldn't have known what they were starting when they first sang 'Jersulam' to Zac - he loves it so much, they now constantly have to sing it to him! :)
