Turkey: At Home with the Family

We're still here!

 There's nary a moment to blog when your two favorite little people are hanging onto your legs.

We've been in Turkey for a week now, and we're soaking up this time with our dearies.  Nine months is a long time to be away from your favorite people.  Abby, my niece, keeps saying, "Lara, I can't believe today is the day you are really here."  Me either!

Here are some pictures from our first few days in Turkey.  We're a little behind "real time" blogging, but hopefully tomorrow, we'll have time to post about our trip to Cappadocia, which we just returned from today.


Nathan and Aaron doing Just Dance Wii at another expat's house.


Reading books and more books.


Hanging out at a beautiful park.


Drewbers pulling a GQ pose on the dinosaur slide.  Love the little butt sticking out.  

The littles spend most our of walking time on the shoulders, backs, and hips of the grownups.  But who can resist them?  I also can't get Aaron to make a straight face for anything.


This little monkey is too cute. 


And this sweet girl is getting too grown-up. 

 

We made gingerbread cookies after reading Jan Brett's Gingerbread Baby about 100 times.



Aaron made a "special" one.  See what I mean about his faces?  I'd like to give a shout-out to the archaeological shirt.  It's dry-wicking to boot.  Love you, hubs.  :)

Cappadocia was incredibly cool, and we can't wait to show you what it looked like!   For tonight, it in the words of our host country, Hoş ça kalın!
