Passing through London

On our way to the States this summer, our flight went through London.  We decided to take a couple days to see the sites.  The weather was rainy, cold, and blustery, but it was fun to see all these famous landmarks just before the Olympics started.

Love this statue checking out Big Ben
The London Eye

Spring Tulips!

We had the privilege to be in Istanbul, Turkey on Easter where they hold an annual Tulip Festival every Spring.  This particular park is jaw-dropping beautiful!  It is said that they plant 20 million tulips.  I post these pictures on the blog, not because of anything great with the photography, but just to share the amazing natural beauty of God's creation.  Mom, I wish you could have seen it with your own eyes!
