Children's Camp

Dave was asked to teach at one of the Childrens camp's this Passover, so we packed up and went south for a few days to join in the fun with the kiddies at Camp! It was held at the 'Baptist Village', a beautiful location near Tel Aviv, with its hills of green grass and lovely wee orange tree orchards and palm trees to be seen all over... we honestly felt at though we'd landed in a different country! It was A LOT of fun, But i must tell you, it was HOT!!! A Heat wave hit Israel, so the indoors was certainly a refuge to ALL of us!

Anyhow.. Shalev had a fantastic time with all the kids and just loved his first experience in the swimming pool. He sure is a social wee fella!

This is the house we stayed in during our time at camp, it was a lovely home situated on the camp site, and a true refuge during midday heat!

Oh how Shavi LOVED that ice-cream! and boy did he deserve it! It was almost 40 degree's at that point of the day... we were SO thankful for the kiosk!


Wow, it's certainly been a while since we last posted, we've been SUPER busy with Passover, Childrens Camp and of course not to mention all the busy day to day stuff involved in being parents, so we've been a little out of touch for the last few weeks, however here we are, and even with a few photos to share.
So here we are at our family Passover meal.
It was a very special meal, which we were able to celebrate with family and friends (including our wonderful friends whom we met at our pre-birth classes), and also May's family and her Grandma from South Africa. However we were VERY sorry to not have the 'Upstairs Salingers' celebrate with us this year, as they were fighting a few nasty sicknessess. Praise the Lord they have all recovered well!

Dave led the Seder, which was very special.

and.. Roast Beef & Roast Lamb were on the menu for the evening!

The Monkey Park

So here we are at the Monkey Park, a whole zoo-like park full of all the different kinds of monkeys you can imagine! Shalev's little friend Eliya came to the park with us too. And we all had a super day! As well as a delicious picnic lunch beforehand.

Mummy's having a wee chat with one of the monkeys
who came to sit in the shade next to her.


And home we go!
