Yesterday we did something that we've been dreaming of for years - take all the kids in our houses and their house moms to Akagera National Park for the day!!
We told the kids on Friday after the dance camp. Oh my goodness I have never seen them so excited! What joy for me to watch them jump and shout around.
Oh what fun we had.
At 4am we loaded up a minibus and a coaster bus and headed out.
47 of us!
|First stop, giraffes|
Then lots of zebra, waterbuffalo, antelope of all sizes and makes, baboons, monkeys and birds and I'm sure I've missed something ...
|Picnic lunch for everyone|
|We saw so many hippos out of water. |
|Our family at one of my favourite lookouts. |
|All of us at the end of a very long, dusty day. |
Time for the 2 hour drive home, showers and BED!
