This weekend we went camping at the Hartbeespoort resort. We wanted somewhere not too far to travel on a Friday afternoon and not too expensive with lots of kids facilities. We were not dissapointed. There were 2 main play areas. Both had a kiddy pool and adult pool and a bar and shop. Both areas had jungle gyms, jumping castles and lots of grass with braai facilities. There was putt putt too but I didnt go there as Mario took the girls at the crack of dawn, so no photos.
We spent most of the time in the big pool that was heated as Laria does NOT like cold water.
There was also a water slide that Beccas friend was brave enough to slide down. On Saturday morning a troop of monkeys raided our camp and got away with our bananas much to the girls' delight and horror.
Becca and Megs had a wonderful time and I think theyre both keen campers now. On another note my clever 2 year old is now potty trained. We took the potty with but she prefers the actual toilet. She also fell in love with swimming since the water was warmer (in the warm pool) and we had to drag her out the pool with promises of lollipops to get her out after 2 hours of swimming.
This morning the wind had picked up and was quite unpleasant so we packed up early and come home.
