Family Picnic

Since 2002 we found our “balance” ,every summer we travel 5 months with our 5W in North America while from September till the end of May we spend time at home with family and friends.

Actually it was an easy decision as no foreigner can stay more than 6 months in the US except on special occasions such as student visa which we do not have…

During the summers we RV always to new to us destinations storing the rig at the end of each trip and picking it up from there in the Springs to discover new places,in our 12 years we always traveled to places we did not yet visit,we like to get to the mountain and then to see what is beyond it,…

During the winters we hike if the weather permits,visit the grandkids and plan the next summer trip,in some winters we take a short trip abroad to ski or just visit the place.

Last Saturday we gathered the kids and the grandkids for a picnic in the the woods,the weather was reasonable and we all had fun.


Food ,games,recreation and a camp fire kept the grandkids busy and happy even without their smartphones…

We had a special guest ,our eldest Grand Daughter (16) brought her first boy friend to meet the gang, and it went very well.

At around 4PM when the sun beams were getting weak it was the sign for us to pack the things,clean the area and head home just before the traffic picks up at the end of the day .


So just before we left here is the whole gang…the boyfriend is behind the camera.

This is winter in my country,no extreme weather except one week in December when it was snowing in Jerusalem and around it.

A day trip & BBQ

This post is dedicated to all my North American friends that are suffering/enjoying the cold harsh weather ,I hope these sun beams and clear skies will warm you up  a bit.

We all know that we cannot control the weather ,so why waist time and energy on the subject??? just go for it and enjoy the present as it comes.

Saying this, we took a day trip on Friday with our hiking group ,hiking 12 Miles around Jerusalem ,it started in a cold weather and slowly developed into a beautiful day as we pilled slowly our warm cloths .

On the next day we had part of our family for a BBQ in the garden,two of the elder Grand kids could not make it ,one was on a school trip and the other with her boy friend (were we the same at 16??)

It is hard these days to get everyone together in one place ,but we continue to do the effort and are happy when “most” of them come over .


Our lemon tree got confused and thought that it is April……any for a lemon????


Keep warm my friends…till we meet again.
