Spending time together…

The aim of this trip was spending time together as a family and enjoying being one. So I will try to give some idea of this through the activities of Boeta for a day at the lodge. After breakfast we sat outside having a nice coffee. It did not take long before Boeta had one and then two friends from the lodge and they played together.

He was in a running mood and at that moment nothing else mattered to me. I wanted to capture the 2 year-old in flight and I wanted to capture the delight.

Se if you think I managed this…

The best for me was watching them together, mother and child, just being together.

Boeta, being a healthy toddler, does not sit still for too long and as you would guess he was off again, exploring.

He found another friend of similar age and they had a quick play or combined investigation of the wagon behind them.

So as the sun sets, you can see the figure of a mother and her son on the grass taking it all in. I soon joined them, taking a deep satisfied breath.

    The lodge looks like a lovely place to relax, especially when you have such big skies and scenery to enjoy…I’d feel at home there, that I know. Boeta has a cute kisscurl…I had one just like it at his age! A lovely day.
