We spent a day in Toledo and it turned out to be one of my favorite trips.

Christie and I on a bridge in front of the gate.

This is called a Cluster. When there is an opening in the church with gardens and an outside hall surrounding it- very romantic!


Christie, Kimber and me with the city in the background, the cathedral is on the top left of the center.

"The Boys" Colton, Guillermo and William. Guillermo is in the Alcala ward and got back from a mission he served in California in August.

Me, Alarie, Guillermo and Madison with the Rio Tajo in the background. Alarie and Madison are both from Colorado and great- no- AMAZING girls.

Raven and me. Raven is from the one and only Provo (having gone to school for 3 years in Provo and served my mission in the Provo mission, there is a very VERY special place in my heart for Provo. Raven is convincing me to join the Siesta and Luau dance club this winter, I think I might do it.

The lovely group, man how I'll miss them.

Here's a group of us taking a break from all the walking and filling in the work book we have with questions for every place we visit. Some don't like the work book, sometimes I don't like it, but all the time it takes to fill it out brings us together in the chanllenge. :)

These girls have become my family! This is in a Gazebo in the forests that surround the palace you can hardly see in the background.

Roman Merida

The temple of Diana in Merida, Spain. People say that Merida is the "Rome" of Spain. Romans built this around the time of Christ.

One of my most favorite places was a city called Sintra where we visited a palace on the top of one of its mountains. Breathtaking...
