Safari 2011 Highlight Reel

Being on a safari in Southern Africa has to be one of the best things we’ve ever gotten to do. For real. It is so exhilarating…and freeing…and peaceful…and exciting…and beautiful…the stars were shining big & brightly over us. Amazing. Seriously. We will hold onto these memories from the wild of Africa for a lifetime. Being able to experience this with family and friends was awesome. Here are a couple highlights…our friends shared their pics with us so any awesome photo was probably not taken by a j or a k. Sweet.

Okay…you caught us…this last one is *altered* a bit…but it is two real pictures combined. Thanks to Dave for this one πŸ™‚

    Totally on my bucket list. The animals are so pretty! It must’ve have been so surreal for you guys to them in person.

    PS- Kate, in the 3rd to last picture, you’re totally resembling Christina Applegate. not sure if anyone has ever told you that before!

    I love when you share pictures of your adventures! I live vicariously through you until I’m able to go on big adventures like those myself.

    Also, is this Dave the very same one that was your guide on your safari last year? And is that him I see in the 3rd picture? I remember seeing your pics from last year and thinking what a good looking guy he is! Glad you guys got to see him again, and I’m glad to see him in your pics too lol πŸ™‚
