Days off…

On the days weren’t seeing the world we loved the base library, BX, note writing, word spelling and the playground!

Will would hold up the answer to questions. Do you want to eat cake- Yes. Do you want to take a shower- No….editspain 007

We hung out under the trees!

Rhonda and Gibraltar

We took the scenic route to Gibraltar and stopped in Rhonda. Look at the beautiful sky!

Then on our way to Gibraltar we saw an Aldi. You know we had to stop. We even bought a few things.

This was the 3rd time I had a monkey on my head. They kept wanting to get Williams drink cup I was holding. The first time I kept screaming for Nick to help and he just laughed. Smile

You have to walk across a runway to get to Gibraltar. So on our way back to our car they closed the gates and we watched this plane land.

The interesting part for me was how the town part of Gibraltar felt just like we were back in England. Some of the shops were the same, our bank was there, and lots of fish and chips.  The views were amazing and to say we could see Africa was crazy. I’m so thankful we added it to our list.

Next stop on our fast paced tour of Spain was Italica. It is right outside of Seville and is the home of MANY Roman ruins. The kids loved this place. It was all outside with lots of places to run. William also liked all the arrows pointing which way to go.

The tile floors in the homes were beautiful. I can’t imagine how long each one would have taken!

Isn’t that a beautiful church? It was huge. Everywhere you looked there was something gorgeous.
