We have really been making the most of the Winter sunshine. With the Winter Solstice happening just over a month ago, we’re now a little closer to Summer.
I realise I’m about to jinx things now just by typing this, but the weather lately has been beautiful. *Cue the cold front.*
It’s still Winter, don’t get me wrong, but when the sun comes out it’s the perfect opportunity to not waste it and get out into the (masked) fresh air with the boys. We are all better in nature; and after being in lockdown in an apartment, we’ve promised to never take outings for granted again.
I wanted to share a few of our recent outings over the last few weeks, collectively in one post, so that I can save this as a memory.
The Promenade (Bantry Bay, Sea Point, Mouille Point):
This is a first… George fell asleep within 2 minutes of being in the car driving to the prom. So instead of popping Alexi in his pram, we popped the 3 year old in the pram. Thankfully Sox had his Baby Bjorn carrier in the car. I got quite a workout pushing Georgie, that’s for sure!
We went for a coffee / babyccino at Cafe Caprice – it felt really good to enjoy a restaurant for a change, even if it was socially distanced. We sat up top and had that whole section to ourselves.
Both times we’ve driven to Hout Bay to see the seals and take a walk along the docks, the boys have fallen asleep in the car. We always stop to grab a coffee (and a choc croissant treat for Georgie) and he falls asleep, half way through eating it.
The police were so sweet to George and Max – they put the flashing lights on, let them look at the inside of the police car and even allowed the boys to wear the police badge around their necks. They made 2 little boys very happy.
