All too soon, it was time to send Uncle G and Aunt P on to the rest of their adventures in Turkey. We needed to head home to be ready for school on Monday. We had one final dinner together, lots of hugs and thank you's for our time together, then we trotted off to bed. Early the next morning, CC drove them to the local airport, came back and had breakfast with us, then we loaded up for the beautiful drive home.
We made record time by making little sandwiches for ourselves and bringing some fruit for the drive home.
I enjoyed taking some pictures from the drive.
Just as the sun set, we made it home, hearts full and laundry pile high.
There are so many things to see in Antalya, so we made several suggestions and gave our impressions from past visits. We were glad they picked Phaselis. It's so very beautiful.
If you've been reading this blog for awhile, you know this is where I lost Sweet Cheeks one year. Worst 1/2 hour of my life. So, this year, we teased that we would put a leash on her. She didn't mind the teasing. She knows it is because she is loved!
You just can't take a bad picture here, even if you've got a few grays peeking through.
Uncle G checked out the ancient bathhouses.
These kids are next to a monument with engraving from a wrestling competition.
And evidently, when asked about his Spring Break, Big Ben talked only about a bat in a cave, a snake in a bathhouse, and a centipede on a rock.
Every time I go, I wish I could turn upright this upside down lion.
We had a fun day. I wish we could have stayed longer!
Miss Middler routinely borrows my camera, and I find the most interesting shots on it. She is not so much into photographing kids (like me!), but rather finding interesting angles and perspectives. I am so thankful for these pictures. One day I will see Turkey through a different lens, as I glance through my blog books.
This is my favorite! It was a beautiful old tree. She shot straight up, lying on the ground.
