Tulips from Hamsterdam

Today was my school concert. This is my last concert at this school, cos next year I'm going to pre-primary school!

I had to dress like a cook - see my pretty apron? - and I got to sing 'Tulips from Hamsterdam'.

It's my party!

Now I'm five! I had a wonderful party with my friends. We had my party at SuperChurch, and I had a Beauty and the Beast theme. I dressed up as a Beauty and my cake also had a picture of Beauty and the Beast on it.

These are my friends and some of my cousins.

Here's me with a part of my cake. See my special crown? It is a tiara with feathers and flashing lights on it and it has a big 5 on it. Mommy says that now I'm five I can wear it as much as I like.

End of term fun

At the end of the term we always have a dress-up day. This term, Mom helped me to make a special costume. I painted this one myself and Mom painted my face. Can you guess what I am?

Monkeybars (video post)


Mommy took this video in April, but has only got it downloaded now. I'm much better at Monkeybars now, but this was just after I learnt how to do the Big Monkeybars properly. Mommy says I'm turning into a real little gymnast. My Oupa was nearly selected as a gymnast for the SA team - I think for the Olympics or something - so maybe I take after him.

Holiday skills (video post)


This is me learning to balance my bike as I ride downhill. It took a few go's before I got the hang of it.

Jimmy Jungles party

One of my best friends had her party at Jimmy Jungles at Tygervalley. I had SUCH fun. Here are some photos from the party.

This is the birthday girl.


This is one of my other best friends.
And this is my third best friend.
Here's Nathan enjoying the toddler den. He's too little to come on the other things with me.

My World Cup holiday

It's the World Cup Soccer. That's why we're going away. Mommy and Daddy say the city is too busy and noisy. Because I'm both South African and British, I asked Mommy to draw their flags on my cheeks almost every day of the holiday!On our way to PE we stopped at Monkeyland. Next time we're going to go to the bird place again cos I don't remember going there before even though Mommy says we went there last year. When we had lunch in the parking lot this peacock came to share it. We fed him lots of bread.
These are the monkeys we saw - we saw lots of these ones.
This is a lemur - not the ringed lemurs like King (whatshisnameagain?) who says "I like to move it move it" - Mommy took photos of those ones, but they didn't come out too nicely. Did you know that monkeys have tails and apes don't? And lemurs came before monkeys OR apes. They must be very old.
At the Oceanium in PE, there were no dolphins. They had been sent away. But there were dinosaurs. This big, scary one TERRIFIED me. It moved it's head, eyes, and breathed, and made horrible loud noises. Daddy tried to pick me up to let me touch it and I started crying. I didn't like this dinosaur statue at all. Later Mommy took me back and then it wasn't as scary - because I knew that it was just a statue. But it was still scary.These statues also moved, but their tape got stuck when Mommy wanted to take a video, so she just took the photos instead.
This is the baby seal called Nellie!! She's still learning all her tricks.
This is my friend Zoe. Well, ACTUALLY, her mommy is friends with my my mommy. We stayed at Zoe's house for 2 sleeps. Here we are watching the penguins doing their 'March of the Penguins'.They also had a jumping castle at the Oceanarium.


We stayed in Oudsthoorn for two sleeps. We went to the Crocodile Farm. These are the crocodiles.
They also have lots of other animals there - like this Wallaby.
And porcupines,
And white lions. He's eating a donkey.
This is an orange tiger (Bengal) - like Shere Khan is in Jungle Book. This is a white tiger. He's just a baby - younger than Nathan. The guide said that when he's big his paws will be as large as dinner plates. His paws are already big, even though he's a baby.
This is a baby cheetah.
These are some smelly River Hogs. They can swim.
These are flamingos. They were just swimming around and around their island.
We went to the Cango Caves while we were in Oudtshoorn. The caves were very dark and a bit smelly, but some of the rocks were pretty. We only went half way because Nathan is too big for Mommy to carry through the small holes, but he was sleeping the whole trip anyway so I don't think he enjoyed any of it.

I'm glad to be back home. I liked Zoe's house because I could see Mommy and Daddy's room while lying in my bed, but I like my house because it's got all my things in it. Willow Point was freezing, so Daddy made us fires every night. But Nathan had to share my room and he kept waking me up, so I didn't like it there this time. Then Mommy and Daddy moved him to sleep in front of the fire, and that wasn't fair either cos I also wanted to sleep in front of the fire.

But now we're home again and Nathan is getting better so he doesn't wake me up anymore AND I got to go to one of my best friend's parties over the weekend and have special party food that Nathan isn't allowed.

I wish we could go on holiday ALL the time.

More photos of me

Mommy has had some time to upload photos and video of me from her phone. Yay!!

This is one of my best friends. She was going to stay over, but later decided that she missed her mommy and daddy, so she went home. Nathan's learning to feed himself. What a messy boy!!
This is one that Daddy took of me when we went to the museum. It was fun standing in the middle of the teeth. They were very sharp!
This is another one that Daddy took of me when we went to the Two Oceans' Aquarium. I'm in the middle of the tank where they have a crawl space for little children like me.
And this is my NEW party dress. Uncle Rob bought it for me, all the way from China.

My holiday

We had a lovely holiday. We went to Grandma and Tata's house in Sedgefield. It was a LOOOOOOONG way, hey!When we got there, we saw this funny slug thing in the lake. We also found hundreds of them when we went down to the beach. They were all in the river. Mommy let me touch one. It was slimy. Daddy thought we were mad for touching it and ran away from us when we tried to touch him! It was very funny.
We couldn't find the hammock, but Mommy did put up the swing chair for us, and Nathan and I sat and swung together for a while.Here's a photo of me and Daddy playing catch. I'm getting very good at catching now!Morning times are special too. It was dark and cold when we woke up, so we'd usually snuggle with Grandma and Tata in their bed for a bit, while Mommy and Daddy snoozed a bit more. Then we'd get dressed and play. This is me with my Leo and Nathan with his Leo. Nathan likes his Leo because he sees me with my Leo. I don't like Nathan to play with my Leo, that's why he has his own Leo. I used to have two Leos, but I gave one of them to him.
Before we left Grandma insisted that we take a photo on the jetty. This is a tradition.Nathan is getting more fun to play with all the time. I love my Nathan as wide as my arms can stretch!

Outings

Last month my best friend had her birthday party. At her party there was a climbing wall. I'm getting really good at climbing now! We also got to have our faces painted, and have blue hair! (You can't see my hair is blue in this photo, but it is at the back. I had a lot of fun at her party.Today my friends from nursery all went to the beach together on the train. When we got to the beach, there were some fisherman pulling in their nets. We got to see the fish, and the crabs. I didn't like the crabs, and the flopping fish made me nervous. But I loved jumping in the waves and digging in the sand.
