Connor’s 9th birthday … and cannot get it into my head that these kiddies are growing up way too fast!! … was last week with his party on Sunday at City ROCK in Johannesburg. What an awesome place !! Walking through the doors, with birthday cake in hand, both hubby and I couldn’t believe what we saw!! Different coloured climbing walls everywhere!! It used to be an action cricket venue where hubby, in the ‘old’ days played on a few occasions. Now it is this amazing indoor venue for rock climbing.

Naturally I took my camera along too !! Hubby and I arrived at the end of their warm-up exercises …
The next step is the horizontal wall …
The vertical wall followed ..
Abseiling down was fun !!
They hadn’t been climbing for long and were already saying their hands were sore !! It’s tough on hands, arms, shoulders, legs …. an all round body workout!!! I would love to try it!!! Need to fix the lower back first, me thinks 😉
Then they could climb any of the belay system walls with or without assistance depending on their confidence levels. Must add here, the staff were amazing! So encouraging, helpful and patient !!
This wall, above, was tricky for Connor, who is not the most light and nimble of children, but with encouragement all the way, he got to the top .. YAY for Connor !!!
That smile says it all 🙂
Both girls at the party do gymnastics. They scrambled up the walls like monkeys !
I had a walk-about to see more ..
The dude above, is the same small figure practically hanging upside down !!
Delicious cappuccino’s are served here …
As for the birthday cake .. Connor asked for Lego men climbing up a cake!! That’s we he got … 9 men in total 😉
Man in charge of campfire in cave ..
Ooops only realised too late that ‘Connor’ has a moustache !!
This was the cake I made for his actual birthday on the 16th ..
Happy Birthday big boy !!!! It was an AWESOME one !!! love you lots xxx
