Stephanie & Wayne’s visit

The first week in March my lovely sister, Stephanie and her husband, Wayne came to visit us, I got leave from work to spend the week with them in Groblersdal with my parents. The first weekend was quite a busy one, on Saturday we organised a surprise baby shower for Stephanie. Ducky is due 27 June, and we are so very excited for a new family member, a little boy this time, the first one!

Stephanie didn’t suspect anything, we bought her a pedicure at the spa where they we held the baby shower, when her pedicure was finished we told her we all wanted to have cake and tea, and that’s when we walked into the room filled with family and friends.

That Sunday was my dad’s 60th birthday, we held it at Safari Lodge, it’s a buffet restaurant and bar, and the whole family joined for the wonderful day.

Over the week we went to various places around and in Groblersdal, we went to visit my uncle and aunt on the farm and also went for a ride on my uncles farm watching his wild animals, we saw buffalos, impalas and a few other things. We also went to Mbidi Lodge a few kilometres out of Groblersdal where we saw a snake show and White Lions.

The visit was over way to soon, and I really wished Stephanie and Wayne could’ve stayed a while longer… But it really was a wonderful week, I had tons of fun!
