Once upon a time...

...A Grandpa and Grandma decided to take their kids and grand kids to Israel for a Trip of a Life Time.
In 2007 my Grandparents took all but seven of their grand kids and kids to Israel. You may be wondering why I'm posting about the trip that happened almost six years ago. Well I just finished my album for the trip. (I kept on putting it off.) Finishing it made me remember the trip and what a Blast I had. My Grandpa was a pastor and took people on tours in Israel, so he had taken his whole family quite a few times. They decided that since most of the grand kids were older now that they should do the trip. We left on April 4th and came home April 16th.
We met up with our cousins and everyone else in London. ;) We had to wait 5 hours for them! We were only supposed to wait 3. It was a Long wait.


London was beautiful!

In Jordan. Lets just say that Jordan isn't the most clean country in the world.


Apparently they Really like blond people. ;) By the way I Know I look terrible in though's glasses. ;)

Swimming with my cousin Katie at the Gan HaShlosha National Park, which has natural hot spring pools. ;)


We had the opportunity to be baptized in the Jordan river by our Grandpa. It was so special and I'm so grateful that I had the opportunity. Mare getting baptized. :)

Me getting baptized. Oh just to let you know, the water was super cold!

Having a Great time watching everyone get baptized. :)

We visited Mt. Bental and on the way up to the top of the Mt. they have creatures made out of metal.
 Here two of my cousins are playing on one.

Being a Veterinarian

While I was gone in Belize one of my goats got attacked by two dogs. They jumped the goat fence and attacked Addy. I didn't know about it till we called home and they told us that she might die. (They hadn't found her till almost a day after it happened.) I wasn't expecting to hear something like that when I called home. They took care of her till I got home. They thought that she had just been attacked on the right side and under her neck. (It's hard to find wounds on a goat.) They put different ointments on her neck where the wounds were and they healed up. When we got home Mare run outside to see her and there was a Huge scab coming off her neck on the Left side! One of her wattles got ripped off and a Lot of hair. Under the scab she had a Huge wound. Here are pictures from when the scab came off, to her almost healed.   

                                                                                                       Her almost all the way healed. :)


                                                            Getting ready to change her wrap. ;) Oh, Corona is Amazing! It helped heal the wound and keep infections out. I Love it!

Mare holding her so I can change it. :)

It took four months to heal completely! It was a long couple of months. Although I learned a Lot from it. Hope you all have a Great weekend. :)
