The day we had been waiting for finally arrived! I awoke to the sound of vuvuzelas being blown in the streets. We had to take J to karate training and the kids took their vuvuzelas in the car with them. The atmosphere in the streets was amazing. People were blowing vuvuzelas everywhere and the kids had great fun joining in! As we drove past an elderly lady walking her dog, I told them it may upset her, but to our surprise, she turned and greeted them with a friendly wave and a big smile!
In the afternoon we went down to our friends and the kids all had their faces painted with flags of the countries they had chosen to prepare some information on, as well as something delicious to eat from that country.
K managed to knock it off on her first hit and then the bigger boys tossed it into the air and smashed it open....
sweet treats flew all over for the kids to enjoy!
The kids ran outside to blow their vuvuzelas and we could hear the whole neighbourhood joining together in celebration!
We enjoyed a South African boerewors roll braai along with K's chicken kebabs and satay sauce from the Netherlands. The array of deserts was fantastic: Scones and jam and cream from England, Chocolate oat crackles from Japan, Choc Chip cookies from USA and Koeksisters from good old SA!
Even hubby joined in with his SA flag face painted by K and his Dutch scarf. We had a great evening with friends and look forward to more World Cup fun!
