Today is the Tomorrow You Blogged About Yesterday

Or not.

For the first time that I can think of, I'm going to tell you not what I did today, but what I did yesterday. I guess that means that tomorrow, I'll be blogging about today. Hmm, at some point, I'd better play catch up.

Anyway, yesterday was a school holiday, and we drove to Jerusalem to see Avi's family. Liat's good friend Eden came along. We ate, the kids played cards, I knit, we ate, the kids played word games, I knit, we ate, the kids read, Avi cooked, I washed dishes, and we did a little (very little) sightseeing.

We drove to a promenade not far from my in-laws' home, where we could enjoy a panoramic view of the city. Avi pointed out various sights to the girls.

The view is gorgeous, but almost always hazy. Here you can see the Old City, with the mosque known as the Dome of the Rock shining golden in the late afternoon sunshine

Avi took this photo. I believe this building in the foreground is the Church of Gethsemane. Somebody please correct me if I am wrong!

So many trees were in glorious bloom.

I like to take "artistic" photos.

There were lovely sights to see in my MIL's garden, as well.

See what I mean?

Yes, Meital at age 10 is the same height as her grandmother; Liat is taller. My MIL is very petite, very smart, and very loving.

In short, we all had a great time. And, I got a lot of knitting done.

Great pics. They reminded me of my trip to Jerusalem, oh so many years ago. Dome of the Rock, the Wailing Wall, the Old City.....

Thanks for the memories.

I totally adore those last two pictures of your (beautiful!) girls and their granny.

Jerusalem must be a beautiful city. Maybe one day I'll be able to visit your country.

Those are great pics, and your daughters are both beautiful, but Liat is stunning. So, what did you eat :) inquiring minds want to know. How is MIL's cooking or baking?

Great blog, Amy! I really enjoyed the panoramic pictures but especially enjoyed the pictures of your daughters and your mother-in-law. You've mentioned her many, many times in your blogs and it's nice to see what she looks like.....very loving!!!
