Today and tomorrow Israel celebrates Rash Hashana, the Jewish New Year. So we used Rob's day off to take a morning excursion to Caesarea. Just a half hour drive up the coast, we could go explore the ruins and still be home in time for naps. So, sort of like vacation only way easier.
(Caesarea was built by King Herod from 22 - 10 BC.) 

Michael was in a monkey's paradise, climbing all over the place. I found balancing along walls and climbing around pretty compelling, too. 

Here is part of a massive arena where they used to have horse and chariot races.

Wow. That is beautiful. I think I am going to be envious of every Israel "vacation" you post about. I didn't feel that way about Sweden. I guess that means I definitely have to visit this time.

And how cute is Ella? She is getting so pretty. I did not realize you could still carry a one-year-old around in a baby carrier. Not that I would try. I can't even carry around a 6-month-old without feeling like I am going to die. You guys are tough.

So, so interesting. How fun to get to go on mini vacations. I love your updates and find this new place that you're living in very interesting.
Britt - it's because she is so light weight and petite.

Love it! You so deserve to be somewhere so warm and sunny! How nice to take amazing vacations in your own backyard.
