The Beautiful City

We spent all day walking around Jerusalem!

The Wailing Wall,
the pools of Bethesda,
kids with guns,
the Dome of the Rock,
the various gates,
eating a schwarma,
the Via Dolorosa,
the Upper Room,
the steps from the City of David,
the scourging room,
nasty internet cafes,
checking out Israeli men...

it was an awesome day!

That night we went to a restaurant where I was given my cake with a firework in it. :) Hopefully I'll get a missle this year!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BECKY!! Sorry, but I got you something other than a missle for your gift. I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy it more than a missle though!

Dawn said...

I just have to share a minor detail I feel as though you may have neglected to notice...Female Soldier in top photo wearing a lime green strawberry shortcake wrist watch. I definitely feel better knowing there's a girl out there who feels comfortable enough to sport an assault rifle and has a softer, more feminine side too! It's either that, or it was the cheapest one at Wal*Mart...One of the two...I'd like to believe the first one!

LOL!!! What I think is most funny about that last line on your blog is that you truly would LOVE to have your freakn' birthday cake just EXPLODE in front of you!!! That's just one of the many reasons why I love you!!

I am way jealous as I read about your travels and adventures...what great memories! Some day I'll be rubbing my awesomeness back in your face, you just wait!!!!
