Yes! Things have been pretty quiet around here since my last post when I was cooking up a storm with Amy from Chat Thai in February! A few days after The Retro Hubby, Retro Boy, The Retro Baby and myself jumped on a plane to South Africa. I will mention that The Retro Baby had Gastro the day before we flew out which hit me 6 hours before landing into South Africa. It was the stuff horror movies were made of really. Luckily I was semi prepared and had asked the Dr to write me a script the day before we flew which kind of helped a tiny bit! It took us 26 hours from Sydney- Singapore- Johannesburg to Capetown. I think we were pretty brave!
We planned our trip as a Surprise for my Father In-Law for his 69th Birthday as next year when he turns 70, The Retro Boy would have started school. It was months in the making of planning and all went off without a hitch. This was the first time he’s met The Retro Baby! My favourite memory from our holiday was the day Grandpa took us to the beach for fish and chips in his big red Chev. We were away for 4 weeks. Half our time in Capetown with family and the other half travelling around. We spent 2 nights at Aquila private game lodge, 4 nights in Stanford at Blue Gum Country Estate and 5 nights in Knysna, along the garden route. It was an amazing few weeks catching up with family from across the world and spending time with each other. It was also exhausting travelling with young children! Here are some of my favourite moments from our trip in photo form. Enjoy!
