Erin’s 5th Birthday party

Yesterday, Erin celebrated her 5th birthday party with her friends at the Chatoga Spur in Glen Marais.   Her actual birthday falls on Easter Sunday this year, hence the party with friends being held early.   School holidays and Easter weekend = most friends away on holiday.

On arrival, you cannot miss the enormous slide in the kiddies play area.  It’s about the height of a single storey building!!!!   I knew the boys would make a B-line for it .. I wasn’t wrong 🙂  I wondered about the safety of it (the boys were left in our care as Jeanette went to a photoshoot) … but it was perfectly safe.    Children climb up and slide down one at a time – the left side is for the smaller kiddies.  Two ladies on either wide watch them the whole the time, blowing their whistles keeping the kiddies under control ..

They were scrambling up the ladder like monkeys !!!

It kept them busy … they spent most of the afternoon on it !!

… and the queue didn’t stop ..

    My word that’s a huge slide!! Glad they had a ball 🙂
    Must say that’s the best facepainting I’ve seen at a Spur! Erin looks gorgeous with her flowers. And clever Nicole with the cake!!

    Erin really is sweet. She reminds me so much of my sister’s daughter. Now my two would have spent the whole party on that slide
