Halloween in SA with #Linky

Welcome to my Picture Perfect
Party Linky #215!

Friday after School
Amanda's Party

Halloween is not celebrated much in South Africa. The last three years I've come up with ways to make the day fun for Amanda, so that she won't feel like she's missing out. This year, on Friday, we did a dress-up party with a few friends after school. They first ate lunch and played at our house and then I took them all to the Karoo Desert Botanical Gardens where they had a treasure hunt for snacks and juice boxes and then a little picnic afterwards. We even saw several tortoises. All in all, it was great fun.

Friday Night
Samantha as Harley Quinn

Samantha went to a Halloween party that night. She created her own costume. She went as Harley Quinn and she would have borrowed a baseball bat for her prop, but she couldn't get a hold of one. The bat and ball game that is popular in South Africa is cricket. A cricket bat just doesn't look the same.

With Samantha's 16th birthday a few weeks ago, she planned a family outing to Cape Town. This is Part 3 of 3.
