This is a train station. At the bottom of this "monument" it has mileage to all kinds of places, some local and other places around the world.
This is a quiet corner in a used book store we found. They had an amazing amount of books for sale. This is the children's section. I almost started to cry because I missed my girls so much. My girls all love their books, this would be like visiting a candy store for them.
This is one of many little animal sculptures around this city. He was my favorite. I liked him so much my friend Monica and I took pictures with him.
I love this house and it's placement in the woods. I understand it is actually a museum with people who are dressed for the period. I would have really enjoyed seeing the inside. I took this picture from the 12th floor of our hotel.
Last but not least, this is my presidential picture. Doesn't every candidate have this thinker picture? This is actually a self-portrait. I was so excited to be on a plane and my husband was trying to read. So I tried to entertain myself with the camera.
Just a couple of things for everybody to know:
• This was the first time I have flown in 21 years.
•This was the first time Richard and I have been on a plane together. (In October we will celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary).
• I was extremely excited to be flying somewhere. I am usually the one dropping family off at the airport. Last Friday I was able to get out of the car and walk into the airport with luggage. My wonderful friend Elisabeth and her Grandma dropped us off. I must admit the two hour wait was kind of a bummer.
• I am still a little kid at heart. Driving to the airport was so exciting, I honestly felt like I was going to Disneyland. I kept smiling at Richard and he kept laughing at me.
Over the next few days, I will share some of the things God challenged me with this past weekend.
