Sam and Rachel enjoyed some Monkey Bread while we waited for a table to clear and for the others to arrive. The food was good, the company was better and Miss Rachel practiced her future career as a thief by taking $20 from Alissa's wallet while Alissa was otherwise occupied.
Then we had a quick tour of Alissa's (semi) new digs and then we headed off to the Gardens. There was an exhibit of Zimbabwean art and it was pretty cool. We joked that Alissa and Marika could buy Sam the fish sculpture for his next birthday. They declined. It was only $3000 so we don't know what's up with that?!?!?

There was lots of cool stuff to see so we wandered around for a bit, just taking in the sights and enjoying good conversation.
She also caught Sam hanging with Uncle Donny. And Dave really liked the picture of Sam running away as that is what he was doing most of the day!

And then we ended the evening off with cookies, beer, Coke, learning to take better pictures and lots of laughter. It was the perfect end to a really good day, even if it wasn't at the beach.
