It was a beautiful day!

The weather in Hillcrest,South Africa, has been awful lately. For about 3 months the rain has drizzled and the mist has ... well ...... misted! Most mornings I fling open the curtains hoping to be able to sing U2's awesome song ' It's a beautiful day ......!"
I am delighted to say that yesterday the mist and drizzle vamoosed and the kidlets were able to go ape in the pool !! We all got a good dose of Vitamin D!

For dinner I made a platter of fruit..... the perfect meal on a hot humid day! Okay so the kidlets needed a little convincing that this was dinner..... but they were very adventurous and sampled a couple of fruits that they had never tasted before!!
"It was a beautiful day, and we didn't let it get away."

WONDERFUL! I'm so glad that you had a great day! Nice weather always helps one to feel so much better. The photo of your kids is so sweet...looks like they had fun in the pool. As for 'dinner'...it looked amazing!!! I'd eat at your house any day.

Hope tomorrow is just as beautiful.

Your dinner looks fabulous! What I would give to eat some fresh fruit right now, I'm so tired of apples, pears and oranges!!

I'm really envious of your kids in the pool right now. It's been so cold here! It's 32F/0C tonight- it rarely gets this cold here. I'm frozen!!

I LOVE that song...one of my favs!
That fruit platter looks yummy. Never thought of that for din din.
It's winter here, so we are just getting into the freezing cold. :(
