Miss T’s birthday is on the same day as our wedding anniversary. How cool is that? This year, Miss T turned 2 and we decided to do something that she would enjoy as well. She loves being outside so we decided on an outdoor excursion and what better place than the winelands :-). Our go to picnic places are Kirstenbosch gardens, green point park and our favourite Spier in Stellenbosch. We decided to try a different place and we settled on Vredenheim Estate in Stellenbosch, a few farms from Spier. It was amazing. Not only are the gardens beautiful, but their picnic basket is to die for and is very filling. The dessert was brownies and we could not get enough. There was home made bread as well that we loved. Here are some pictures from our picnic.


Best place for a picnic box? Baby’s head of course

The farm also had wild animals and we were able to see zebras, wilderbeest, bucks, ostriches as well as cows :-). There is a wild cat enclosure with lions and we will definately go back for that in a few weeks. The grounds are so big that even though there were other people, we had a whole section to ourselves. They also do weddings, bridal showers, get togethers and if you do not want a picnic basket, they have 2 restaurants with a wide menu. Will let you know about the food next time I go there, but their picnic basket did not disappoint.

We had a lot of fun and we thanked God for Miss T and all the years we have been together. Our prayer is that the years ahead are as amazing as the ones behind. Looking forward to another great year.
