So I have decided to share some Easter events in Port Elizabeth…because I’m just super nice like that.
We won’t be doing much in the realm of Easter festivities this year. At most it will be a hunt at home because it’s my grandfather’s funeral and both my mother and mother in law’s birthdays, I think it’s likely to be a home bound weekend…. So you should totally go out and have fun so we can live vicariously…..
