But now, they're back and Mama and Papa and the family are delighted to see them.
Lesley and Alan, who live in Saudi Arabia, arrived on Friday and joined Mama and Papa at Happy House on Saturday morning.
Lesley and Alan, with the support of their friends, colleagues and neighbours at home in Taif, raised more than £4,000 for Happy House which has taken our appeal for computers for school to its target, with more left over to fulfil Lesley's original plan to to raise enough money to cover the costs of the Happy House household bills for the duration of their stay in Watamu..
They've also brought with them many much needed items for our children, including the books the kids are holding in the picture with Lesley.
Welcome Alan and Lesley, thank you for all you do to help our family, and enjoy your visit.
