Safari Adventure

So let's just say you are driving in rural Africa and somehow lose the map you are following?  What might you get?

Well, if you are anything like us, a true adventure!  Grass taller than your car, logs to hack through, dry riverbeds, deep ravines, acacia thorns and a few animal sightings were all part of our adventure as we made our way to safari.  Our 60 km drive through the bush was nerve wracking, a bit crazy and something we would never suggest to anyone!


Still, through the grace of God, a lot of prayer and David's steady hand on the car, we made it safely through our unplanned adventure to the safari lodge without any major issues. At the lodge, we were met by the first of many elephants we would see on our trip.


The next day, we entered Ruaha National Park.  Our day was full of sightings of lion, elephants, hippos, giraffes, impala and other African wild life. 












Not to mention, these cute kids...






God's creation never ceases to amaze and we are truly thankful for the memories made on safari...even the memories from our crazy adventure to get there!  
(Thankfully, we were able to recover the map and had a less adventure filled return trip.)

Three months and Catching up

Three months? How could three months pass so quickly and not a blog post in sight?

Easter came and went...






 The rains have stopped for the most part and while there are fewer puddles to splash in...




Hikes to the creek have resumed...







Three months and no blog post, but life has continued in its beautiful fullness.  Hopefully I will do a better job of keeping up with things here over the next three months!

Five Thousand Kilometers

Five thousand kilometers driven on our recent trip to South Africa. (3,100 miles for you non-metric speaking folks.)

Five thousand kilometers included...

A visit through some of South Africa's diamond mining history...


Including the largest hand dug hole on the planet...


The views of the iconic Table Mountain...




Visits with lions, cheetahs and penguins (oh my!)...








Not to mention swimming with the fishes...






Two oceans (and a faceful of sand) in one day...







Catching up with forever friends and seeing their new home...


Five thousand kilometers of wonderful memories, yummy food, and rest for our spirits...


Five thousand kilometers and still smiling in the end...


(Surely there is a smile behind the pacifier...)
