Tim, Heidi, Lily & Eli Visit Spain

Robin's brother Tim & his family came to visit us.  They arrived on February 24 & left to go to Germany for a few days on March 4.  We had such a fun time having them here with us!!  We are so thankful that they made the long journey over here.  :)

Here are a few pictures from our time together.

 Lily helped me go pick up Josiah & Miriam from school the day they arrived.  
We were waiting for the train.  :)
 The kids made this into a spaceship.
 We finally went to the Sagrada Familia.  
We had not been inside it yet and it was definitely a must see.
This is one of the facade's outside.

 View of the ceiling
 Josiah was not too thrilled about taking a family picture.
 There was a playground across the street from the Sagrada Familia.  
We took a short detour to play.  :)

 Josiah's favorite thing to do is chase the pigeons.  This is at Placa Catalonia in Barcelona.
 Lily and Miriam mostly just watched the crazy boy chasing the pigeons.  :)

 I love this picture! Not sure how he stands on his tip toes like that.
 Josiah is learning to read in school.  He was reading to Eli.

 Miriam & Lily spent a lot of time coloring.
 We made it to the top of Mount Tibidabo for a brief visit.
 More playground time
 Beach day.  I think this was one of the high-lights for everyone.  
It was a beautiful day the day we went.

 Tim, Lily, Heidi, & Eli enjoying the view
 Eli had fun playing in the sand (and eating it).  :)
 The brave explorer

 Mont Serrat
It was pretty cold & wet the day we went, but it was still beautiful views from the top.  
You can see a rainbow in the background of this picture.
 Inside the Basilica at the top of Mont Serrat
Josiah was really quiet inside the Basilica.  He loved it in there.  He did not want to leave.
