Voortrekker Monument weekend24 June , 2014
Nicola had her heart set on home made pizza on Friday. It was delicious!🙂
Sunrise on the longest night day…
Big tearful goodbye for Polka when Nicola found out she wasn’t allowed where we were going next.
Mia and Nicola…just outside the Voortrekker Monument.
Getting close to some history…
I took so many photos, but here are some of my favourites. It was awesome seeing everything again – it’s the first time in yeeeeears that I’ve been to the monument. (Also plenty of stairs to chase kids up and down…my poor knees!)
Views from the top!
Not as warm as a camp fire…😉
Tapestry – this was in a separate museum the last time I was there, but this time it was in the lower level. Amazing detail…
This was new. This bosveld scene is made completely of icing or sugar paste or whatever!
Old family bible in the museum.
You have to ask yourself why it’s necessary to have these up in the loo?
The girls had a lot of fun, although they were not all that impressed with the monument. Oh well, maybe when they’re older?
After the million stairs we took a well deserved break in the picnic area.
What a great day!🙂
On Sunday morning we made some sugar cookies. Nicola gets to pick the cutters, and out of more than 100 that we have, these are the ones she picked.😉
Clowning around. I’m not just saying this cause I’m her mother, but seriously…how stunningly beautiful is my baby?!😀
It’s a slow process this longer day business. It is STILL pitch dark outside at 6:30. *sigh*
