Most controversial thing about the holiday
Not taking the in-laws with us. They're still a bit awkward about it but it was great family time for our little family.
Thava at The Boat House. Thava is my favourite restaurant here in Jhb (I ask for all my mother's day and anniversary meals there) so it was one of the things I wanted to do down there.
Now that we've been, we will go every time.
Oh, we had naan bread, chicken korma and chicken biryani.
Most memorable food
The softest Portuguese rolls ever at Foodzone near our apartment. I only bought 6 - we had fried eggs one lunch time - and we all regretted not having more :)
Speaking about that Foodzone, the kids had never seen so many chocolates and sweets all in one place (poor "deprived" kids :))
Using Uber and not renting a car!
Most disappointing news
That the house sale fell through :(
Ludo, dominoes and pick up sticks
Best thing I brought along
After my camera and Kindle, my bullet journal. I got used to messing it up on this holiday.
Kendra's favourite thing to do
Go for an adventure (running around inside the complex all by herself). Her father was a bit freaked but I was fine with it.
Of course, Connor couldn't WAIT til she got back to go adventuring together with her.
Connor's favourite thing to do
Walk on the boardwalk every day, and climbing rocks
Favourite things to watch on TV
Some soccer tournament (help me!) and WIMBLEDON!
Best things taken with us
Washing powder, jeans and sweatshirts. It was COLD!
Sweetest thing about the kids
Connor reading Kendra bedtime stories.
Best thing about the weather
Grey skies (TONS!) - usually we only get a day or two. This time we had many, many days and I have many, many amazing photos.
Next best thing about the weather
Tea, cuddling, reading, more tea, biscuits, etc.
D being sick for nearly the entire holiday :(
Best money saver
Seriously, Uber! I have a whole post on this for the Organising Queen blog next week.
Best beach read
Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe
Favourite photo of the kids
|"we're being birds"|
Best photo of palm trees :)
Which is your favourite photo? And highlight?
