Monday's Adventures

We seriously slept in on monday. We woke up around 12 :) gotta love that! We made some yummy ;P turkish coffee had a slice of ham and cheese on on bread and breakfast was done. Sarah called after their SDA appt and we met up for some adventures! What a blast to have another couple here to have fun with. We walked all around, saw so many cool things, all the neat churches, Saint Sofia, Saint Michael, and ? There is another big one right next to the sda office . Really amazing to see these beautiful churches that have stood strong against so much destruction around them.
At the square we had a gentleman named Richard come up and aks Greg, if we lost. He was a film producer from Canada that has been coming to this country for 10 years. What an amazing guy, with a wealth of history and stories to tell. He gave us a walking tour that lasted several hours and was  very cool. He was such a gentleman he wouldnt even let us pay him or give him a tip ! He said he enjoyed the day and the beer so all is well. Amazing man. Let me tell ya though, this is one HILLY city! We stopped and had a water break, bought a beer for Richard then we were off again. The only time we got a bit nervous was when Richard wanted to put us in a car with any regular dude who was willing to drive us since that is so much cheaper. I appreciate that is how the locals do it, but us Americans  would rather pay a few more bucks and be alive thank you very much. Sarah and I were much happier in a real cab :) which was very cheap btw. We ate dinner at a local cuisine resturant across from the TGIF and it was delicious. 2 full dinners for $11.00
~oh we met Masha and Autumn with their parents ! What a dollbaby that masha (mallory and peach) Is ! I could have scooped her up and just hugged her all day.
After that we walked with sarah and gregg and Lacey and her hubby to a toy store then thru the underground walk ways which are neat. Then home (in the dark ;) and fell into bed by 9 right after we skyped with the kiddos :) LOVE YOU GUYS!

Ok, had our SDA appt this morning. Next blog...I will leave you will this there were Surprises, scares, oh my.

saying goodbye to our 2 oldest kiddos. Yes it was hard and there were some tears. Love you guys!

Following your journey is so very enjoyable for me. The apartment is cute and I'm glad to hear that you've been able to meet up with other AP's along the way. Can't wait to hear about your appointment and even more excited for you to meet your children.
