I have so much to be thankful for everyday, and today it was for the opportunity to visit a town in northwestern Jordan called Umm Qais. This town is near Jordan's borders with Israel and Syria. It's not every day you drive and see highway signs for Syria.
We went with Tes and a couple of friends, who have a daughter that is between the boys age. They play well together and had a lot of fun running around all day. What more can little kids ask for than lots of space to run and all the rocks in the world to throw!

We hiked around and took in the beauty of this place.
We encountered some prickly thistles along the way. Poor Benjamin fell face first into a patch of prickles, and I had to pull quite a few out of his little cheeks. He has some red marks around each spot and a scratch from a thorn, but he is fine ;).
We made it to the restaurant and enjoyed delicious hummus, pita, cheese, and meat dishes while taking in the view.
