52 Weeks of Happiness - Week 30

Elections were last Tuesday.
Thursday Scott wasn't feeling well, and came home early.
Thursday, there were also riots in town, so school closed a little early
Friday, a new president was announced.
And the town went crazy again.
School was cancelled.
And Scott came home sick again.
We decided we needed a weekend away.
So we packed some clothes, and headed out.

Ethan and I were in our camouflage gear.

To get to the Protea Safari Lodge
you get to drive through a amazing forest
and see animals hiding.

We  reached the lodge, 
to find it's there,
right on a lake.

We spent most of the weekend by the pool,
only to learn we weren't the only ones to love it.

Saturday morning, we made our way to see the lion enclosure.

Before heading out on Sunday,
we decided to take a drive around the park
to see what we could see.

This place would look amazing during the rainy season.
For now, it gave me small reminders of autumn.

We did manage a couple glimpses
of some beautiful animals.

Happiness is a beautiful, relaxing weekend away.

It looks so wonderful. I am sorry you guys had a rough week. The weekend looked like it was just what the doctor ordered.
I hope things settle down there.

Goodness, elections, rioting,schools closing, what's all that excitement about? No wonder you wanted to get away for a weekend,and what a weekend it was! So very interesting to see all of your wonderful pictures. I loved the one of you and your handsome son. He seems to be growing up so fast. So sorry though that your husband wasn't feeling well, hope he recovered completely over the weekend. It's not so fun to go away when you aren't feel up to snuff.

The scenery was so beautiful. I truly loved it, and also the pictures of the animals, especially the lions.
