I'm back and with photos!

Wow, where do I even start? I have been gone from Blogville for a while now and yes I'm ashamed but I'm repentant and I'm back! Oh yea and with pics too!

We just said goodbye to Bro. Jim Pranger and his wife Laura this morning. They came down on Wednesday and he preached and then we took them to the coast on Thursday and then to the capital on Friday. It was fun and I managed to snap a few along the way.

Bro. Jim and Laura Pranger we missionaries in Russia for 10 years and are now in Budapest, Hungary. A Roman judgement hall in Pula, Croatia.

I saw this guy biking with his wife and little doggie. Look how he made a little tent for it, how sweet is that?

Some of my amature photography at the arena in Pula.

My kiddos, yea I'm proud!

Then on Friday we went to Zagreb and happened to catch a festival they were having, way too cool. Here are some random shots.

Okay now isn't this the most gnome-like fella you ever saw???

Like that table!

Yummy cheeses.

Oh yea and the students in Croatia are protesting the costs of college and this was one of the protests there. Apparently selling these students.
This guys was good, he was the salesman and he was so charismatic and likeable. He almost made me pick one out myself. :0)

Oh yea, check out that barcode on their foreheads, how prophetic!

Oh and these guys were there too, kinda knew that didn't ya?

**So sorry that I haven't been around to visit y'all but I'm back and I have lots of reading to do!

    hugs Sandra in New Zealand

  9. Glad you're back! Love the pics - thanks for sharing! I love to see the pics from foreign mission fields. Love the little biking dog, yes, the gnome guys can't hardly be outdone, and I reckon now I know where to get any type basket I want!

  10. Thanks for the comment, Tori. I can't believe it's already been a year.
    The photos are great! You are a great photographer. I'm glad you all had a good visit with the Prangers. I believe we have a missionary to Croatia presenting his work here in least, I think so. Terry isn't nearby to ask. Anyway, maybe help is on the way. Wish I could come visit you all! Have a great week!

  11. Wow, great pictures! Looks like lots of fun!!

  12. Glad that you are back Sis Tori. It was great to see a picture of the Pranger's again. The church that I grew up in has supported them for years. One of the last times I was home they had Bro. Pranger in to preach. This was the week before they left for Hungary.

  13. Hi there! I've been MIA from blog land also. Being in the new house has kept me really busy and not much time for blogging lol.

    One question...??? What were those people doing (the ones laying down on the ground)???

    And that man did look like a gnome LOL!!! :)

  14. I just love looking at all your pics. If I was rich I'd travel the world. Those MM's are everywhere aren't they, growing up in Idaho, I can spot them a mile away. I don't see them so much in the bible belt though. :)

  15. You may have been gone for a while but not idle. I can see you have been very busy and enjoying life and that is great. The pictures are great especially of your children. I don't blame you for being proud of them.

    I also noticed the picture of the windows. They were very good. They were all very good. I am glad you had the visiting missionaries. I am sure that they were a blessing to you and your family. Have another wonderful day. connie
