While their mommy was busy …

… with a ‘trash-the-dress’ photo shoot  at Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens on Saturday afternoon …   (see Jeanette’s post)

… I dragged the boys away from their obsession with playing games on their mommy’s phone …

… and we went bird watching!  Gasps from them as they didn’t know what it was or what it entailed.  Playing games seemed like much more fun!

Not much bird watching was done … boys will be boys …

(and I was thinking that maybe we should have come here for our photo shoot, as we had originally planned)

Trying to keep them quiet in the hide was a mission, but they – mainly meaning Connor – got the hang of it and whispered …. loudly !!!

Bradley, being Bradley/the studious child he is, had fun pointing out the various birds on the charts ..

Connor took this photo of Bradley – he’s getting good with his photography !

Onward towards the waterfall and a promised ice cream and train ride ..

Stop to quench the thirst …. and play with the water spout  …

Time to turn back …. by that time, the ice cream kiosk was closed and the train had finished for the day.  Very disappointed faces 😦   

Mmmm … they spotted the cake (made by Angel) which had been used in the photo shoot and all was forgiven when they had a piece each .. it was absolutely scrumptious  .. yummm!! 

I’m hoping they had fun!!!  😉
