Water Sports !

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 2:19 pm

A quiet Sunday at the end of May and we were having a great sunny weekend at home. We have not had too many hot days but this was one we were not going to let slip by without at least some water fun. We filled the turtle ( the old sand box ) and the water table and had a lot of fun trying to wet everybody. Eventually the game turned into Daddy chasing Cezanne with 2 cups of water trying to soak her…

Painting Ocean Blue

Filed under: Just Everyday,Special Events — Dad @ 9:51 pm

We have begun the great work of moving Cezanne all the way from her baby room into her big girl room right next door. We cleaned up the junk that had piled up in the old sewing room, patched up the walls where necessary and then got stuck into painting the walls in a light blue which Cezanne refers to as Ocean Blue. When asked which she preferred between Sky Blue and Ocean Blue, she picked Ocean Blue. The paint is in fact Flemish Sky, but please don’t tell Cezanne because we all know Ocean Blue is better than Sky Blue !

The photos were lovingly taken by Grandma who was in charge of Cezanne while the rest of us painted. All we heard while we tried to get the painting done was Grandma repeatedly saying, “Stop Cezanne, you have to rolly it” Cezanne just wanted to dip and run and paint without rolling the excess paint off her paint roller. With all her (Cezanne) help we got the room painted just in time to then rush her off to school so we could apply a second coat without needing to watch where we stepped 😉

Memorial Day @ Brookfield Zoo

Filed under: Places Visited,Special Events — Dad @ 9:31 pm

We enjoyed the day off ( Memorial Day ) by taking a trip out to the Brookfield Zoo with good friends Daleen & Werner Basson and their daughter ( Cezanne’s BFF ) Chloe, and Baby Megan – yeah I know it is confusing but just try keep up. Grandma & Grandpa, Aunty Daleen & Uncle Werner, Baby Megan, Chloe & Cezanne and Mom & Dad all made it to the Zoo for a great day of animal spotting. This time we did the Hamill Family Play Zoo and the Children’s Zoo but had to see the Alligators, Bears & Zebras for some or other reason.

We had lots of fun growling at all the bears and got a good laugh out of all the other parents waiting to take pictures with the big kangaroo when Cezanne & Chloe popped up making funny faces and refusing to put on their “happy faces”.

Early Birthday Present !

Filed under: Just Everyday,Special Events — Dad @ 2:34 pm

We are suckers for a great deal…

We found a new dresser for Cezanne’s “big girl room” online and went to take delivery of the dresser from the warehouse and discovered that they were having a clearance sale and found a play-set for a steal. We just managed to pack the dresser and play-set in the back of the SUV and got it home where it had to be assembled immediately !

Sandy Play with Grandma

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 11:12 pm

Cezanne is having an absolute ball with her Grandma & Grandpa. They are enjoying the special time they have together just as much. Today like most days since they arrived, it was outside play with Grandma & Grandpa as soon as Mom & Dad would allow – after breakfast.

Grandma & Cezanne played in the sandpit for a long time singing songs and having long discussions, Mommy & Grandpa watched from the breakfast table until finally Grandma called us all to see that Cezanne had lost her legs in the sandpit…

Potty Princess & Ouma se Rokkie

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 10:57 pm

Cezanne has now got the potty thing pretty much licked. Most days are almost completely dry, while at night she is still in a diaper because we can not send her to bed without plenty to drink, it is getting too hot now and she needs her liquids…


Here is one of those photos we will keep and pull out for her 21st birthday or to show her boyfriends when they come around.

Thanks to Ouma for a few pretty little dresses just perfect for Summer and potty training. Here are a few shots of one of the dresses modeled by Cezanne, outside, where else ?

Water Play & Basketball

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 10:48 pm

Spring is getting more and more like Summer over here and Cezanne is without a doubt an outdoor child. If she could live outside all day everyday I am sure she would… Heaven help us if we ever put a tent up for her or get her one of those little play houses.

Every morning now is a struggle to get breakfast in her before she escapes to the wonderful world outside, our backyard.

On this particular day she was out back again playing with the water table and having more fun than one little person should be allowed to have on their own !

Grandpa and Grandma are enjoying the busy fun that Cezanne provides every day, she is like vitamins.
