On Sunday, our nephews D and J (J is our godson too) came over to spend the day with us. We try to take J out for the day once a month or so, as he’s old enough now to come with us without his mom (he’s nearly six) and his mom has her hands full with our newest nephew E, so a little bit of “free” time for her is a bonus!
This Sunday, we fetched J and then picked up D and brought them home with us to swim and play.
J loves baking and cooking and measuring so we made a toffee caramel that meant lots of measuring and then stirring on the stove as it boiled. D did most of the hot stirring as J is wary of the stove, and then we stuck it in the fridge. I dunno if I used the wrong sugar or we added too much syrup (anything’s possible) but our toffee wouldn’t set enough for me to cut it into squares… It was no problem for us though, we just scooped spoons full of it all afternoon!
The boys swam, had more fun than I could possibly have imagined with a couple of empty 2L Coke and Sprite bottles, played with Riddick, played Lego and watched Lilo & Stitch.
We had hot dogs for lunch and the boys swam some more.
Our next day with him we’re planning to head to a zoo, we just don’t know which one. Joburg (huge), Pretoria (huge and pricey) or Lory Park (small and cheap)… Any recommendations?
