We went to Langebaan and the West Coast National Park last weekend with our friends Lauren, Jono, Amelia (6 yrs) and Jo (almost 2 yrs) McGill. Lily and Amelia are in Soetlief together, and Lauren and I get to hang out every week while they are in class. Her friendship has been such a gift! Through an online search, Lauren found a house on the beach to share, and it was SUCH a good and affordable find! I'm so used to our small apartment, that when we walked in to the house I was almost in shock! I said "we get to use this whole house?" It had 4 bedrooms, full kitchen with a dishwasher (I've never been so excited about loading a dishwasher), a downstairs living room with comfy couches and an indoor braai (fire place), an upstairs living room with a table and chairs, more couches, and a deck with a grill and a view of the beach! Plus, there was a fully enclosed and secured yard so the kids could just go outside and play in the grass! It was a perfect fit for our two families to relax, play, get to know each other, and enjoy the beautiful weekend. It felt like home.
