We took a little trip to the Sinai this past weekend. It's always nice to get out of the city and breath fresh air and see stars. We drove through some amazing scenery...wow...God is so creative! The most fasinating part of the trip was that we crossed over into Asia, stayed on the Red Sea looking over Saudi Arabia in an area that some believe to be the place that Moses crossed over with the Israelites...and we were near a Bedouin village...just typing that amazes me! We are so grateful for the experiences that God allows us to enjoy.
It was a little windy...
The Red Sea...with Saudi in the background and where some believe Moses crossed...(and where we made a sand castle!)
Bedouin lady making bread dough...
Her name was Selma...
Mariah and Madison posing with her...
Meredith making her bread...just imagine if we had to do this everyday..we would starve!
Matt had to have a turn...I love his concentration face!
But this was definately Madison's cup of tea... or slice of bread..:)
We loved this sign and even went back to see the camel races but they didn't have them at the time they were advertised...:)
But we did find a camel hanging out in the street...and Matt almost had a head on collision with one!
Meredith with her very cool friends/teammates, Dana and Kinzi
The same day that Egypt played Algeria in a playoff for the World Cup, Meredith's school played a local Sudanese school...We were just as excited about Meredith's game as we were the Egypt game! We were sad to see Egypt lose but super excited that Meredith's team won!! Go Crocs!!!
Well, we were a little late this year getting to the actual party for Madison and Matthew Ray...people visiting and an appendectomy threw us off this year. :) I was determined to make a really cool rainbow cake this year. I don't think I could have made it without Mariah's help but it turned out great! We had a full house and everyone had a great time!
Check out this super cool surprise...

Julie and Vicky with Stacey and Matthew Ray
April with Vicky and Julie
The team also spent time playing with our kids and loving on them:
And....while they were here we also celebrated my (Stacey's) 38th birthday at the NEW Outback Steakhouse. It was such a fun time of relaxation in the middle of an intense week.
Don't ask...but just know that this is pure talent (I'm just sayin:)
THANKS GUYS! WE LOVE YOU AND CAN'T WAIT FOR YOU TO COME BACK AGAIN!!!!!
