What a cool gift!

This afternoon, on our way to pick up the kids, Mo stopped off at a Orms Direct photographic store, supposedly to inquire about my little point-and-shoot (Kodak M23 easyshare), since I have recently been experiencing problems with the quality of my pictures.
Tharaa (10), Aisha (2) and I waited in the car, while playing with our new pet bunny, whom we had brought along for the drive.
After what seemed like hours, Mo emerged from the store carrying a huge box containing (what emerged after a dramatic guessing game) my very belated anniversary gift - a Canon PowerShot SX40IS

I was dumbfounded - but thrilled. I wanted to test it out immediately and was disappointed that we did not have the time to take a detour to find a spot to capture some scenic pictures.
Then, looking around me, I realised how foolish I was being. Despite being in the city centre, I was surrounded by absolutely beautiful sights for which Cape Town is famous. Unfortunately, since we were in a hurry, I'd had to capture most of these while leaning from a moving car with a wriggly bunny on my lap.
And then, while zipping through the suburb of
Walmer Estate                                                                                                                        
Upon arriving back home, I snapped a few pics of Bugs and Aisha savouring the last few minutes of long-awaited sunlight in the garden.                                                                                                      
Thanks Mo. This is definitely one of the coolest gifts I've ever received.
