Pictures and more Pictures!

If you're looking for my Slow Cooking Thursday post, it's just below, there's some YUMMY recipes being shared.

Now, are you
ready for some more pictures? I have a few more from Margate, South Africa and then I have some I took yesterday of Jasmine and us, also the diner we had dinner come in and sit for a while, I know I know I share a lot of pics, but I really enjoy showing you all and especially the family, what we're up to on this side of the world.

So here we go, here's a little slideshow with some new ones from Margate. My brother took pics of places we had all been at together on vacation so it brought back wonderful memories, especially the seaside apartments we stayed in with our grandfather before he passed away. Enjoy!!!

Cool Slideshows

Now for yesterday, you remember it was Jasmine's birthday so I took some pictures of everyone, me included. I don't think I have to tell you how much I hate having my picture taken I always feel like I just don't look right and then when I try to look decent it comes out being forced and just weird LOL

Yesterday I decided to just let it go and just be you're warned LOL

Miss Jasmine doing what she does best, talk on the phone with her friends.

Mommy and kiddos, excuse the dark circles under my eyes, it's been a tough month.

Too funny not to share, I LOVE his face in this pic

Me in all my glory LOL

Mommy and birthday girl, she says she was trying to look like a pug???? LOL

Mommy and Nicholas, little man wanted his pic taken too

Now onto the dinner pictures, Jasmine picked a diner to go to. I LOVE diners, I just think there's nothing better than sitting there in your booth, eating a burger and fries with a milkshake and then having a sundae or banana split for dessert....what is BETTER than that I ask you???

Grinde's Diner

Dessert Menu on the wall

Mushroom burger and seasoned curly fries

Daddy and birthday girl

Little man posing for the camera

I just had to post this one LOL Maybe his drink was spiked with something LOL

And there you have it, hope I didn't put you to sleep or bore you to death with all these pictures....I guess it's safe to say that I love my camera, Curt actually said to me yesterday "you look like a tourist with her camera" LOL

As long as I'm not snapping embarassing pictures of anyone I think it's safe right??? Doesn't everyone take pictures of their food??? No??? Is it just me??? I know Barb does too so I feel better LOL

Hope you're all enjoying your thursday, don't forget that tonight we have Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy and October Road (it's becoming one of my favorites to watch)

I'll be back tomorrow,

God Bless,

I wasn't bored at all, Sandra!! You are so pretty, your eyes are gorgeous! It looks like Jasmine had the best kind a birthday with her family!!

What great pictures! You look beautiful and like you were having a lot of fun with your family. I love diners too- I'd rather have a burger with fries than just about anything. What a great birthday for Jasmine!

Happy 8 years of motherhood to you! I think the mother should get presents too, a massage or something! We did a whole of a lot of work then, and in all the years since that day too!! Don't you think!

Hi Sandra, I'm so happy to hear from you again. I thought I had lost you or had offended you or something because you just disappeared. I visited you a couple times hoping to reconnect, but when it didn't happen, I gave up. I'm sooooo glad to see you again. And the pictures are wonderful. Your kids take the sweetest photos!

Hi Sandra - Happy Birthday to your sweet Jasmine! You have a beautiful family, including you. :) That's great about moving to Arizona. I've heard it is very friendly there.

have a fun day,

take care,

Kelli said...

Hi Sandra, your blog is looking great! When we get around to visiting the US I definitely want to eat at a diner. Reminds me of "Happy Days", so American. I loved your photos too -you could be the twin sister of my best friend here in Oz. Amazing.

Have a great week!

I love pictures too and I really enjoy how you post yours in a variety of ways (ie: black and white, black and white with color, etc...) It makes for an interesting looking blog!!! Sounds like your daughter and your family had a nice birthday dinner. I take pictures of my food too and sometimes I look like a tourist with my camera. You just don't know when a picture perfect moment may come up.

Have a great weekend!

I'm glad you shared all these pictures. Margate looks like a great place to go.

You all look like you had a great time at Jasmines party. We don't have diners here om Hawaii and I really miss that.
