yesterday we went on an adventure to Carmona and Cordoba!! it was fun. Carmona was on the way to Cordoba, we did'nt actually mean to go there but the boys were getting tired of sitting in the car. It's a nice little town about an hour and a half away from Rota. We spent about 2 hours there and had lunch. again, the boys were not impressed with the food....but they are coming around. After we ate we walked up this VERY narrow cobblestone street, where cars drive as your walking! CRAZY! and found a courtyard with benches. There were some kids playing soccer and (of course) our boys joined right in! James was asking how to say stuff in Spanish. it was great! One good thing about our boys is that they have no quams about walking up to kids and joining in the fun!!! even if they don't speak the language! awesome!
Traveling with them is getting better. They were VERY good! when we finally made it to Cordoba, the mosque had already closed so we just strolled the streets and had ice cream. the boys love the fact that they can run around! it's very safe here. The spainish really value children. its wonderful.
Here are a few more pics!
here in Spain there are a million dragonflys all over!!! seriously, they are everywhere! Colby found one on the ground outside our was injured. this is Jo in Sevilla. great shot of him in the plaza. He just wanted to sit and people are Jo and James in our Salon (living room) before we moved our stuff in.the boys at the Alcazar. and at the kids day on base!
