Family time

One of our favourite things to do as a family is have a braai outside. We usually spoil ourselves with a few packets of crisps and my famous dip while the fire is getting ready to cook on...mmmm....I am embarrassed to say that we literally pile around the little table and consume them like vultures...
(We don't eat potatoes often, so when we do get the chance to eat any form of a potato it's gone sooner than anyone can say 'Starch!')
Rachel is unhappy because her little brother just got dip all over her pants...he is happy because he got dip all over her pants!

The chip eating is then followed with fun time outside, and then we eat whatever it is we have cooked...this time - hamburgers (with the bun - another luxury in our family :-))

Fear Factor

What do worms, fish, chilli, concentrate, baby purity, onions and dog food have in common? They were all items to be swallowed on our Fear Factor evening last Friday. Yuk!!!

All in good fun hey? What an evening full of laughs! To top it off for me, Rachel even tried a Mopani worm at the end of the evening...crazy girl!


Amanda and Rachel still like to play dress-up at times, and this time they decided to get into their old ballet must understand that they haven't done ballet for at least the last 5 how they squeezed into those leotards is a total mystery. Kids will be kids...
