I'm back ............... I think!

Lets just say a 16 hour plane ride takes a while to to recuperate from.   We are back though and we really did have a  wonderful time.   We survived, our children survived, my parents survived and life if slowly getting back to normal...........just in time for school to get out and then find a new normal :).

I thought I would share a few pictures from the trip..................we took hundreds, but I don't want to overwhelm anyone so here are just a few.

This is me and my husband at the Garden of Gethsemane in Israel.

Here is a group from our tour floating in the Dead Sea.
I surprised myself and actually put on a swim suit.  It was
 pretty cool, I don't think you could drown in the Dead Sea
 if you wanted too.

Here I am deep in thought on a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee.  

 My husband and I at a temple in Egypt.

This is me sitting with my in law's working on a little sewing
in the Holy Lands - am I dedicated or what!

Left to Right.  My brother and sister and law, me and my
husband, my mother n' law and father n' law.  In the
background you can see the Mediterranean Sea.

Here we are at the Spinx with a pyramid in the background.
 We thought the security guard that was in Egypt with us was
being nice by offering to take our picture all the time.
 Turns out he wanted money when it was all said and done. 

The Temple at Petra in Jordan

Luxor Temple in Egypt.

We went on a four day cruise down the Nile River.
Every day when we got back they had our towels folded
into something interesting.

This is my cute sister n' law Jenny showing some children how
to fold a boat out of paper.

A cute little boy in Egypt that melted my heart.

My husband and I standing in front of one of 
138 huge columns in a temple in Egypt.

There are a ton more pictures.............maybe I'll post them another time.  Thank you all for your well wishes for me and my husband on our big adventure.  I was pretty nervous about leaving 4 little ones for so long.  I missed them a ton, but it was a great experience.   I'll post some pictures of some projects I worked on in a couple of days!

I love seeing what other parts of the world looks like, esp. the Holy Land. Another blogger is in Jerusalem right now (foxs lane) and it looks so amazing. It's incredible to know that Jesus once walked in that place. Hope your trip brings you back more inspired and safe.
