Time with those I love

Last weekend we packed our bags and headed to Joburg for some time with friends and family. And I tell you it felt like the shortest weekend ever!!! We had 3 nights to spend with family and friends and it just wasn't enough for me.

As soon as we got off the Gautrain from the airport, which I must say, I was totally impressed by, my baby sister and Dad picked us up and we headed to the Hardman's for dinner. It was so good to see their little people all grown.

Baby H was so happy with the stuffed doggy we got him, he put it on a leash and dragged it around with him till we left.

That smile melts my heart!

Miss T was only too happy to pose for a pic while writing a letter for us to take back with, for her Gogo

Mr R, not so much :)

Hubby and Mr H.
The next day, was set aside for my High school buddies. I love these gals, and I tell you, it is so refreshing to spend some time with like minded women I grew up with. And boy did we have plenty to catch up on after having not seen them in nearly a year. Still though, the time was too short!


Pose :)

A Bit of pool. Which I totally suck at.

These two beautiful women have been there for me through some crazy times.

LOVE all these crazies

Lol, my hubby's got jokes!

The newly engaged love birds. My BFF is getting married y'alls
Next day was family time. Woop, who doesn't love family time. And it just so happened that my 2 and a half year old nephew (cousins bubba) and 2 year old cousin were also home to visit. So we headed off to the park for some chill time.

My baby sis and lil T, with Granny in the back ground....kiki, so wierd that someone calls my mom Gogo.
Here aunty, done with the ice cream, you can have the cone.
Love these two little rasals.
