On the way home from Kenya, we had a 10-hour layover in Amsterdam, so we took a bus/boat tour of the area. It was a great experience; just wish I hadn't been so exhausted from the sleepless 9-hour flight before.
Got to watch how this man makes wooden shoes. Very cool.
Amsterdam was a really interesting place with gorgeous architecture, windmills and waterwheels. Oh, and bicycles... everywhere!

After spending a couple of days gazing out the window at the crisp white flakes blanketing the lawn, I finally ventured out to get some photos of the winter wonderland. The ice and snow made for rough road conditions, but it was a perfect photo opportunity.
Icicles glisten in the sunlight as they hang like jewels from the roof.

I had a mini photo shoot with my cousins' kids at Thanksgiving. They're some great kids!
Ila Beth is going to be a wonderful flower girl in our wedding in June.
After leaving Mwingi, we went on a safari at Sweet Waters. We stayed in tents at night and went on game rides during the day. Gorgeous place and incredible animals. It was a photographer's dream.
We got lucky and caught a big group of elephants crossing the road just yards in front of our bus. I think there were something like 26 of them lined up walking one by one. Just like in Jungle Book.
This one got a little annoyed at our bus. He turned and flapped out his ears as if to say, "Don't mess with me and my baby!"
