Fun Moments from our Tour through the Holy Land

enjoying a float in the Dead Sea
to celebrate after Kerri's baptism
Well, we've written and written...okay, I've written and written and 'forced' the ladies to share a bit of their times while journeying through the Holy Land. Now I'll just share a few pics with you from our fun times on the trip. :) Maybe even some bloopers..... I know this may make Karen nervous. heehee But I'm gonna be nice. :) The pics are kinda random....but at least they're on here. :)
These pics include the first 3/4 part of our tour.
I will put pics of our time in Jerusalem in another post as there was SO much to see and show you.
I know you're going to enjoy these pictures we have to share with you. :)

taking a hike at Ein Gedi where David
ran to hide from King Saul

the Anik at Ein Gedi...lots of them
the Rock Rabbits at Ein Gedi

Frances and Kyrstin had to
have french fries with ice cream!
Frances was funny...
running into all these good
looking men that she
always had to say bye to :)

Kyrstin got a camel ride
at Petra on her birthday...
and Judy is enjoying
every moment of it as well.

Judy with her camel  :)  what fun!

Kara enjoying a kiss from the camel.
You'd say kiss and he's lift his lips
to kiss you. This same camel was
here 2 years ago too! :)

Connie and Karen S. enjoying a
camel ride at Petra too! :)  yay!

enjoying coffee/tea at Petra with
our Jordanian guide as the

wonderful bus driver, Albert  :)

Kara was the only brave one to
jump in the water and have a swim :)

mother and daughter,
Karen and Kerri ...great
to have them along! :)

Valerie and Anne, sisters to Karen B.
Great to have them along too! :)

it was a little windy out on
the Red Sea and a little
louder with the group of
detectives that were on
board as well....but still
great to be experiencing it!

Captain Judy gets to stear
the boat back to the dock...
okay well not all the way :)

even though it was windy
out on the Red Sea, the
clear blue sunny skies and
water was just beautiful!
group photo on the Red Sea cruise :)
We have such incredible memories and in a way will be bonded together for years to come. A trip like this just moves a person in such a way that it changes our hearts and our lives forever. I encourage everyone to tour the Holy Land because it truly does change your life and changes how you read your Bible. Every aspect of the tour was an adventure and taught you so many things. The people we met, spoke to and walked with....such beautiful people. Everyday was a reason to smile and learn and allow God to make changes in your heart. 

had to have the fun photo with the
two young 'uns of the group :)
