Finally on holiday!
After many years of not being able to go on holiday, this family finally gets to take some time off together.
For years we had been unable to take a proper holiday as I was taking care of my invalid mother and she could not be left alone. She passed away in February 2010 and we miss her very much but this year we took some of our savings and went on holiday.

We stayed in a self catering cottage in sea view Port Elizabeth, we took the kids to The Bridge at Greenacres and they went to watch a movie in 3D. It was the first time ever that the twins had been to a cinema! We took them to the museum, Oceanarium etc. We had a meal at Mike's kitchen and spent a lazy time on the beach. It was wonderful!

The kids have always been so understanding and caring towards their granny and it was such a heart warming pleasure to see them having so much fun!
