~The last of our Cartagena trip pics!~

PLEASE PRAY!! The apt. that we were going to rent has fallen through, so we have LESS THAN 3 weeks to find another house/apt. to rent, pack and move, pack for the USA and clean and paint the old rental house! Please pray that God will guide us to the right house SOON and help us to get everything done!

I obviously have TONS more pics from Cartagena but I will just post these last few from our 13 day trip helping our church there! We did take some days and did some sightseeing with the family that we stayed with and had some time alone as a family too.
~One day the family that we were staying with took us to the beach. Their kids and ours LOVED the ocean.~
~Aren't we cool? =) We passed a man selling these and gave him a little change for letting us try them on for a goofy pic.~
~Cartagena is known for their BEAUTIFUL houses and buildings. I LOVED them...they reminded me somewhat of the beautiful buildings in New Orleans, LA.~
~Our last Sunday we had a triple wedding. These are the 3 bridal bouquets that Kimberly, Ilce and I made for the wedding.~
~The wedding cakes and table.~
~The 3 brides waiting in the back.~
~The 3 happy couples after they were pronounced man and wife! It was a sweet wedding and we felt God's presence very near. The couples were sooo THRILLED with their special day. We took lots of pics and gave each couple an album.~
~Our family after the wedding.~
~The dear family that we stayed with.~
~Eating yummy snowcones smoothered in sweetened condensed milk. =) I used to sell these in the summer time in Louisiana when I was a teenager.~
~Our last full day there our family took a boat ride to an island. Here is part of the Cartagena sky line as we left the city.~
~Even little Elijah wore a life jacket~
~Sarah fixing to slide down the slide...but then she got scared at the bottom and backed off instead of sliding off. =)~
~The kids having fun in the water~
~We bought some delicious Shrimp!! (If you can't tell my time in Louisiana was a huge influence on me.=)~
~A fun picture of Sarah and Mommy (I was holding Sarah's sunglasses for her, thus the 2nd pair of glasses on my blouse.)~
The price of the boat included a WONDERFUL lunch!!~
~A little closer look at our yummy lunch! They served Coconut rice, Sierra fish ("Saw" fish. It was so delicious that I ate 2 fish), fried platan, (like a banana) a yummy salad, fresh fruit and Pop.~
~Our family eating the delicious lunch!~
~Our family in the boat heading back to Cartagena. It was a very special day together...what fun memories!~
Kelly Becker is here and is being a HUGE help!! I'll post pics of her soon. =)

Looks like a wonderful fun time! Seeing the picture of you and Philip with the funny glasses reminded me of a picture I took of you in funny yellow glasses back during college days. I should go and dig through my pictures and see if I can find it!
