WOW ... talk about feeling your age!
22 years ago we brought our children to Israel as their graduation gift from college. Laurie had graduated the year before, married Tim, and he came with us but paid his own way. The deal was "if you don't graduate from college, you have to pay us back!" And here we are today, Laurie's two oldest children are visiting us in the Garden. We are having a wonderful time!
Yesterday we took them to the Dead Sea, Masada, hiked back into en Gedi (where David hid from Saul), worshiped at King of Kings and had supper on Ben Yehuda street - love those falafels and Shwarma's.
The day was incredibly exciting...
When you hang out with Grand Parents,
you can expect almost anything!
Gotta love riding a Camel!
It's not so bad...
and at Sea Level no less
I don't speak Arabic,
so I am not sure what he was asking me...
he may have been offering to trade the camel for Kristin...
I turned him down!
Kristin was really happy to get off that camel!
Masada was pretty impressive
Kristin & Jeff both enjoyed it.

We wondered if David's men did the same thing?
We came back to the parking lot and found an Ibex
(wild goat) wondering among the cars.
Being tourists we took pictures of course.
he jumped up on the cars so he could eat the trees!
We were not parked under the trees
and will NOT park under the trees in the future!
All and all a wonderful day. We love sharing the Land of our Lord with family and friends from the USA.
