And A Good Time Was Had By All

This past weekend we dad a lovely little day trip to near by ElGouna for a picnic. The weather was really nice and this place, I'm in love with it. It's a fish farm but they have picnic areas and lots of greenery to enjoy. It was really pretty and the kids had a really wonderful time. I hope we can do it again, it really was so much fun. Here are some photos from our day.

Safiyah and her friend, Jomana

Zayneb in a little row boat with her friend Farida.

Dawood and his buddy Ibrahim showing him how to bait a hook.

Getting the hang of it.

Picnic area, we brought sandwiches and drinks but really the kids wouldn't stop playing to eat.

Lots of lakes for fishing.

Man made.

They caught little fish but let them go.

Safiyah caught the biggest one :)

They fed this guy a few of the little fish too.

Salwa on the bridge.

The guy showing them how it's done.



Good times.

Later that day I had some great carrot juice and loved the bright orange color.
