Our Favorite Holiday 18

If you had asked me BC (before children) what my favorite holiday was, it would be a lot different to my favorite holiday now we have children, so when the Tots100 was asking bloggers to post about their favorite holiday in order to win a summer holiday from Thomson Al Fresco. I decided to tell you a tale of two holidays.

South Africa 2003
