Wow! Yesterday was my 13 th birthday, it was so amazing! In our house the birthday tradition is we all wake up and pile into our Mom and Dad's bed to open presents. This usually happens very early, for me it was 07:00......
When we finished Mom and Dad surprised me by taking me out for breakfast at Mugg and Bean in Constantia, where I ate a Chocolate Overload waffle, the name does this waffle no justice! I definitely couldn't finish it on my own! While we were there they gave me a purity ring, something I've wanted for a while. They each gave me a card as well. It was really special for me!
After that Mom and I went to Blue Route shopping mall so I could buy myself an iPod with some money Mom and Dad owed me. Mom also got me a nice pair of summer shoes, do the blessings ever end????
When we got home we packed a picnic and made our way to the beach with my cousins, who came down to be with me on my 13Th, and their auntie, Tessa. We had a wonderful time looking in the rock pools!
After the beach we drove to the most amazing ice cream shop, where I had a half scoop of Belgian chocolate and a half scoop of lemon sorbet! It was like a party in my mouth!
Thank you to everyone who made my day so special! I got amazing gifts from everyone, I'm so happy!
One of my favorite gifts was an air ticket from Mom and Dad so that I can drive back to the farm with the Woods, stay on the farm for 2 days, drive up to Natal for my Great-Grandpa's memorial service, then fly home with mom, who is also going up, but is flying both ways.
