Michael in South Africa


Thanks to the wonderful “parent time” that Germany gives during the first year after a baby is born, we were able to make an extended trip to South Africa to see friends and family.  We spent 7 weeks traveling around the country, enjoying the weather, scenery and people very much.  Michael also experienced many firsts there.  So without further ado, here are several pictures that show what we did in South Africa (more or less).

I hope you enjoyed all the pictures, sorry that the quality is low on some, I didn’t have my camera out as often as I should have so many are cell phone shots!

Slowly, but surely, I am catching up on all my posts, stay tuned for Michael’s First Christmas, coming soon 😉
