favorite holiday choc-chip cookies!

Happy family time...
On the east coast of South Africa lies a small town called
'Leisure Bay'.
In these crazy two weeks we were all over each other!

From top to bottom: Me, Barend (second son), Henk (Hubby), Nina (youngest), Casper (third son) and Henri (our eldest son)

Our fearless 'Team Paraguay' wrecked havoc at the local
beach volleyball tournament! 

(Our team's name was "PA--RA--GUAY
because when this cry is wholeheartedly shouted, 
it echo's for m-i-l-e-s!  
If you like you could also have a look at my friend, Betty's blog. 
She's a brilliant blogger from Paraguay
 and it'll surely be worth a watch!

With incomparable support we marched on to seize the victory
and take home the first prize - ice-creams! 
Combine the ice-cream with choc-chip cookies on the beach!!
