Measures of Success

We were blessed with a wonderful vacation to the Cape (SA’s south coast)! Rich and I were there in 1996 and have tried to get back since living here to no avail until now. It is an absolutely gorgeous place where the Atlantic and Indian Ocean meet, with cascading mountain peaks and pristine beaches. Instead of boring you with our penguin, seal, and great white shark adventures I thought I would share a few points denoting a successful vacation!

You know your family vacation was a success when:
1) Your suitcase is filled with sand.
2) No cooking was involved.
3) The only clean clothes in your suitcase are the workout clothes you brought.
4) You managed to talk your husband out of the Great White shark dive he was so insistent upon doing.
5) The day after your return you choose to wear your baggiest jeans.
6) There is a family revolt when you share that the daily ice-cream eating contest has come to an end (thus the need for the baggy jeans).
7) You need a vacation (w/o kids) to recoup from your vacation.
8) Your brain is mush so it is difficult to make it an even 10.
Ahhh....I want to go back RIGHT NOW!

If you see the movie you might just change your mind about Jude...on his looks anyway. :)

If you look under my photo's you'll see a dinky little tree that doesn't look lit...that's mine. :) It's much nicer in person. I'll try to post some better one's soon. Before the season is over! :)
