We packed the land rover and headed out for a 3 and a half hour drive south. The drive was beautiful and we were so happy to get out of the city of Lilongwe for a bit.
Our very elegant dinners-and kiddos with no shoes...
What are Ami and Ben looking at?
A vervet monkey who was spying out our lunch. The waiters had catties (catapults) in their hands and evertime they raised their hands as though they were going to send a rock in the monkeys' direction, they scattered through the trees very quickly.

In the past, we have combined Ami and Bradley's birthday parties because their actual birthdays are so close. This year, however, we went for the calmer, less stressful single celebration party. No donkeys, box castles or pigs, but rather a teddy bears' picnic with a few friends and two sisters:)
Bradley is a delightful boy. He is gentle in his nature, most of the time. His laugh is infectious and his smile melts my heart. Love you big 6 year old!

Ami was Marvin, the sheep who wanted more. Bradley was Mister Dog.
She won the prize for most original costume in her class. Bradleu won the most original cotume award in his class too:)
This costume, in my opinion, was the best! His mom said that her husband had been working on the costume for a couple of weeks. Who would've thought you could come up with something so brilliant here in Malawi

Ami holding "Baby Erin" as she was affectionately called.
On our trip to the lake we also stopped off in a village near Chipoka (where Brian used to live in 1997) and picked up a dug out canoe. It took a whole bunch of village men to load it onto our roof rack. We arrived home safely with it. Brian would like to convert it into a couch.
