Bridget’s 13th birthday was celebrated this weekend with a swim party. Last year we were visiting family in America so this was the first time she had a summer birthday. She thought that was very cool. It was a special treat to have Aunt Letha with us for this occasion. Bridget made homemade play dough for the young kids to take home and Letha made one of her famous cakes. I am still getting requests for the recipe, which of course is a family secret. Many members of our South African family were present for the festivities. We are very privileged to have friends all over the world who accept and love us as family.
