South Africa - November 2011

  • Pilanesberg landscape
    In November 2011 we traveled to South Africa and brought Charles's parents along for the ride. We spent a week in and around Cape Town, a few days near Hartbeespoort and the Cradle of Humankind, a couple days at Pilanesberg National Park, and two days with my friend Stephanie and her family in Pretoria. It was a FANTASTIC trip! There are (currently) 78 photos in this album and don't include some of the great places we visited or people we saw. I may add more as we finish weeding through the approximately FOUR THOUSAND photos we took. Seriously. It was a great trip.

I think the brown eggs turned out nicely! Very earthy.


Oh! My mom made that very same bunny cake - tho' I think it was for a birthday. I bet they TOTALLY got the recipe out of the same newspaper or cookbook.

This year Faith is now two years past her original experiment with hard-boiled eggs - that is, the most comparable thing was the ping-pong balls gramma carries in her pockets and starts bouncing around when the kids need to burn off some energy. So before we managed to stop her, Faith threw harder and harder, wondering why the eggs wouldn't bounce.

But this year 1-year-old Josh was much more to the point. He just held an egg in his hand and started pounding it into the seat of a wooden chair. VERY satisfying noises resulted.
