20th Wedding Anniversary

We celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary this year! We talked about doing something big to celebrate, but it turned out to be too much, so we spent the day together as a family.

First we went to Mini Town in Durban, then we went for a walk along the beach front. I really enjoyed it! Mya kept wanting to know where we were going.... It was hard for her to understand we were just going for a walk!

We were sure that Pappy Hawkins would LOVE Mini Town and we'll be sure to take him there on his next visit - hint, hint! ;)

There was an engineer up in a tower and he slowed the trains down when he saw I was trying to take a picture of the girls with the train in the background. We were sure that Pappy would like that job.

The engineer also had control over the draw bridge you see in this video:

I don't think I will EVER get enough of the ocean view. God is so amazing, powerful and creative!


  1. Love the pictures Mary. So happy you enjoyed a nice anniversary together as a family.

  2. Wow! That’s a day well spent! This place is amazing. My kids are going to love it. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful post. Anyways, I have to find one of the good Chicago wedding venues for my sister-in-law’s wedding and that was the reason I came across this post but I loved it and I will plan a trip here very soon.
