Don't be jealous.
Ok - you can be a little jealous.
We're going to Israel this week for a 2-week vacation for a family member's bar mitzvah. My whole family is going - so this is a massive 2-week vacation with my whole family. My husband couldn't be more thrilled. :=)
No really - we are psyched. This is our first real vacation in....years....and we're going with the kids, plus we're going to ISRAEL!!!!!! Really - is there a better place to go?!?!?
(ok - totally not counting Florence or Paris...)
Anyway, that's why there haven't been posts from me lately (been busy with work and such), and there won't be posts from me for the next two weeks (unless I surprise you AND myself). But here's a question - I'd love to hear any suggestions you may have for fun "field trips" or activities to do with the kids...we won't be renting a car so activities have to be easy to get to, but so far I've only found activities that are open on Shabbat so that won't do, but if you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
