A Picnic....

Hello all you lovely people!!

Welcome and I am so glad you could pop by to say hello!!!

Last weekend my sisters and I took our little families out for the day on a picnic!! And what a wonderful day we had!! Just relaxing, walking, eating and lots and lots of laughter and fun was had by all!!!!! 
 We didn't have to go far either!! Only about a 10 minute drive from home, you can find the most beautiful botanical gardens!!!!! 
I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised to find such a beautiful spot in the middle of the city!!!! It was wonderfully peaceful!!!!
The sound of falling water surrounded us, from the waterfall all the way down to the river bed!!!!!
The dappled sunlight kept us cool and ...... 
there were plenty of interesting little places to rest weary old bones!!!!!!!!!
Sister Zennet ...... 
            .... Margaret ...
.... her daughter Shani and hubby Andrew, aka Skinny ......
.... and their daughter, Kensi!! (Just the cutest little girl you have ever seen!!!!)
.... and my own little Miss J, and yes she is also as cute as a button!!!!!!
....there were lots of giggles .......
..... sing alongs .....
                  ....and exploring ......
          ...... some friendly visitors ......
        ...... and some interesting facts ......
... "the cliff face at the waterfall is composed of quartzite of the Orange Grove Formation at the base of the Witwatersrand Super group, a thick succession of ancient sedimentary 
rocks that contain the largest known deposit of gold in the world" !!!! Interesting, don't you think??!!
We are planning on going back there soon, just to have a coffee at the little restaurant and to walk through the beautiful nursery!!!!
Well dear friends, that was fun!!! Almost as much as the picnic!!!!

This week Moms taxi will be in full swing as my little Miss J starts her final exams!!! Oh dear, the traffic in the city is really scary!!!!

Hope you have a happy, colourful and creative weekend!!!

"Till next time!!

Love Always
