Pesach scenes

Like many Israelis, we have spent a good deal of our chol hamoed in traffic jams. As a diversion we spotted this girl, approximately four years old, standing halfway out the roof of a car nonchalantly driving through Bnei Brak traffic. We honked several times with no response.

Enjoy the pictures from the places we did succeed in visiting.

Ducks on the Yarkon River in Ganei Yehoshua:

My 10-year-old at the beach near Michmoret, north of Netanya (we were trying to go further north, but gave up):

Enjoy the rest of the holiday! Seder update to come.

    Thanks Anna! There’s still one day left.

  5. Just came across your blog and think it’s really neat. đŸ™‚
    I spent a large chunk of last chol hamoed Pesach travelling to Keysaria, Jerusalem and the North. But this year, it seems I can hardly get out of the house for being so busy. Hmm…

    From all these pictures, I could say that you have such a wonderful and loving family, and cute kids too! So have 4 kids, right? 2 boys and 2 girls?
    I am so inspired by families who go out and just spend their time together, whether there is an occasion to celebrate or just an ordinary day. A perfect view of a family who’s intact.
    I wish I could have the same, a family I could live happily ever after with.

    Mel, that’s very sweet. My two oldest wouldn’t let me put their pictures on the blog. At any rate, my family and family life are far from perfect.
    I wish you success in finding a wonderful woman to spend your life with.

  8. Love the pictures!! Looks like you had a great holiday!

  9. Great pics. And I remember those sun hats from back in the days.
