Exploring Paarl (again)

On Monday (Heritage Day) we headed out to the Paarl region for a long afternoon drive.

Since this is an absolutely beautiful part of the world, it is no surprise that we keep returning to discover more of its gems.

We drove around for a while admiring the spectacular scenery and just enjoying the tranquility of our surroundings.

As usual, the children soon became restless. We then headed to an absolutely beautiful spot, which we had discovered during one of our previous visits to Paarl.

Mo and I enjoyed the quiet serenity, completely in awe of our stunning surroundings - while the kids took the opportunity to run about to their hearts' content.

As usual, poor Nuha (7) was left to keep herself entertained, since - on the one hand - she is too young for the older kids' games (according to them) while - on the other hand - two year old Aisha annoys her with her bossiness and tantrums.

The older kids enjoyed a very competitive game of cricket


Meanwhile Mo kept Nuha and Aisha entertained with a game of hide-and-seek.


Mo then joined the older ones for a killer game of soccer, played with Aisha's princess ball.


As usual, we knew it was time to leave when this happened

Tantrum time

What a wonderful and peaceful afternoon. Thank goodness for public holidays.
