We woke up to cloudy skies on Sunday, the second day back home in Johannesburg. If there is one thing that I've always enjoyed was the fact that from our house we could see the city skyline, it's especially beautiful at night. Since we had the barbecue the day before, we settled on one of my all time favorite meals and one which I never have here in the States......Crab Curry!
Since we have such a big family, we can't all fit on one table so the kids usually eat first in the kitchen. You can see my sister in law Hayley on the left trying to hide away from the camera LOL
My dad, my grandmother Jacinta (mom's mother) and again Hayley off to the side LOL It actually became a joke between us because she always seemed to be caught in the photos.
My oldest brother Paul and my sister in law Lilian
Me and Curt.....I have to tell you that I HATE having my picture taken, I always look horrible so don't laugh LOL
As the lunch began though I noticed a plate on the table that brought tears to my eyes, and you may be thinking I am crazy for saying that but you have to understand that this was my greatgrandmother's plate. This was the ONLY one she ate on, she had her own fork and knife and glass etc.....we used to laugh about it but now seeing it and knowing it belonged to her, it just brought back so many great memories.
My poor Nicholas. He was the only one Jet Lagged when we arrived in South Africa, hence the reason he kept falling asleep at any time of the day....here he is trying to eat dinner only to have the sleep win.
And that was the end to our second day in South Africa. The very next morning we set off towards Durban where the kids would encounter the ocean and the beach for their very first time. I'll share all the photos and stories tomorrow so don't forget to check back.
