In their element


So yesterdya we met up with one of Becca's friends and her Mom and hung out with them! WE went to Zoomars where both girls were in their elements, picking up guinea pigs, bunnies, shoving carrots, riding ponies! There were baby goats, and baby guinea pigs the size of hamsters and a lot of baby bunnies!!! We had lunch at Ruby's and then proceeded to the stables where these friends had 2 horses. The girls had a great time seeing how the horses were brushed, saddled and bridled. The horses were then exercised and we were able to watch. The horse that the girls are with is called Holly, and after she had been put back in her stall Kaela gave her a mint! We had a good day and the girls had a blast!

Well today we went to our cousin Molly's 3rd birthday! She wanted to be a princess and everything was geared around that! We had our family lunch before her party and then helped set up for all her visitors! There was makeup, nailvarnish and lots of fun things, like making there own princess crowns. Uncle Steve also had his toes painted! Everyone had a fab time I mean what little girls would not have fun with makeup?!! By the end of the day everyone was tired but had had a load of fun!

First Baseball cont


Ok so as you can see we are all decked out in our red shirts, caps etc! The 3rd pic is the Mexican wave going and you cannot go to a baseb all game without having hotdogs! We had a great seats and started to settle down for the game, I had beer spilt on me by the men behind me, which apparently you have to have as part of the experience! Anyway it turned out that the people behind us, the one man had been to SA so we had great conversations, his one buddy could not understand a game like cricket lasting 5 days! Well Steve was really good in explaining to us what happens, it is similar to the game of rounders but there are things which make it a bit more tight! Our evening went really well with the Angels winning in the last 10 seconds of the game. The vibe was really fun and energetic although I am sure in a close game it would be! It seems that crowds around the world do the same sort of things at a game! After the game there was a fireworks display, my 2nd in 2 weeks!! I think it will take a bit of getting used to for me but I am willing to try! We had a great evening out! The kids were looked after by Steve's folks and they all had a good time to! We look forward to doing some more games!

It was a stunning setting and the stadium seats 45000 people, the attendacne that night was 44, 100! these shots are just to show you some different angles, there were also the jet streams with the sunset, adn then the huge big screen to watch replays.

4th July


Yes I know I have not blogged for a while, but heregoes! Well this was our first 4th of July. In the morning we hung out with our friends Puja, Deep, Trishna and Maya. We went through to Laguna Beach and wondered around the shops went into the biggest Candy store for the kids, Decision making was VERY hard! The vibe around the town was hip and it was very busy! We went for this great Italian ice cream and managed to get a good deal on a dress so I can go on a date with my husband!!! We then all went home to take a nap and then the girls were going with Puja nad Deep to a party and we would fetch them later. Kev and I went to Steve and Shaz where we had burgers and boerwors!!! We had a great evening before heading out to the community park to watch the fireworks display! This was a milestone for me as I have never been to a display! I am very jumpy with the sound. Anyway we had a great evening watching, Kaela fell asleep in 5 minutes and through the loud bangs. After it was finished we all headed home, as the holiday had fallen on a Wed! We had an enjoyable evening.
