Time for fun

As we knew we were going to be moving to another country, we wanted to soak up everything we could where we were living.  So in the midst of craziness, we took a drive up to a fun family day.   We had so much fun driving through the beautiful countryside, exploring ruins, and just hanging out. 

One little town we were planning to drive through had some kind of protests that day with tires burning in the main circle, so that led us to some adventurous Middle-Eastern driving so that we didn't go into that town.  We got to cross medians, go the wrong direction on one way streets, and find back roads to avoid the protests.  That might not sound fun to you, but it was a blast!  : )  I didn't think I was going to be able to drive there, but I actually miss it.  As far as driving goes there, the rules are, there ain't no rules.  Except don't hit a pedestrian...or you go to jail...totally not kidding!

Once we got there, we found flowers blooming and a beautiful view of the Sea of Galilee.  We ate a delicious Arab lunch and enjoyed our family and some normalcy in a very not-normal time of life.

(Do you like the black line across every picture I take with my phone??!!  Me either.  If you have any ideas of how to fix it, please let me know!)
Jacob snoozed out on the way home. 
This one cracks me up!
We made a wrong turn on the way home and ended up in crazy crazy traffic.
But it was the last time I got to see the downtown area, so we soaked it up!
