FIFA Fun & Other Festivities

Friday commenced with 2 very special events....The FIFA World Cup hosted by my resident homeland, South Africa....


AND festivities for my ELEVEN year old's b-day party hosted by the resident Franzenfam mom....


This groovy crew headed out to watch the FIFA Opening Ceremonies and first game, SA vs. Mexico at a large open field in Diepsloot. Thousands gathered to watch, cheer and blow their vuvuzelas.

I was back home with my groovy group of girls starting the b-day festivities while keeping warm with my hot water bottle and cheering for Bafana Bafana.

A highlight of the Opening "Birthday Party" Ceremonies was the whip cream pie trivia that quickly turned into a whip cream pie mess....


Saturday we headed out for a day of water fun at an indoor Aquadome..


From Water Fights


To Water Slides

And Water Tubes
The girls spent 4 hours in the warm pools engaged in water fun.

Afterwards they bowled, played putt- putt...

And attempted wall climbing....of which Tori was the first volunteer..

Sky's birthday is not until the 23rd but the party has begun both for her and South Africa!
