Grandkids in the sky

Happy weekly SkyWatch to you. Guess what! My dear little grandsons, my daughter and my son-in-law are in a jet right now, winging their way northward and westward from Australia, via Korea, to Israel!
Imagine how jet-lagged little Dean and Eyal will be after crossing nine time zones.
They will be in Tel Aviv and then Jerusalem for a total of five weeks, including the holiday week of Passover. Yay!!
In just over three hours, at 10 p.m., they will touch down at Ben-Gurion Airport.
Happy landings!

Very nice photos! I love flying. Don't get to do as much as I would like. I think the Holy Land is beautiful. Maybe I will get to come see the beauty in person one day.

Oh Dina! I'm so happy for all of you! It's fabulous that the whole family could come. Now then... you just need Edo to come and it would be perfect.

Hi Dina! Happy landing!!

India 2008 is coming to its end at Blogtrotter. I know you’re getting a bit tired, but there are still some marvels to come ;). Look forward to reading your comments! Enjoy and have a great weekend!

I don't do window seats on planes because of my nervousness about flying. I'm not totally afraid to fly- I'm just happier on the ground.
Thanks for letting me see what I've been missing. Lovely shots! Enjoy the grands!
Happy First Day of Spring!

Erin said...

indeed it will be a wonderful time...i don't think i would like traveling through all those time zones. i can barely handle ten hours on a plane :)
enjoy the children and keep us updated on your activities.
have a wonderful weekend.

Lew said...

What a great occasion this will be for you!

Kris said...

Now that will be a treat. Five weeks will mean that they'll have plenty of time to adjust.

Is it their first visit?

Hi Dina how lucky are you first out to OZ the OZ comes to you. I am sitting here waiting for news from the hospital they kept our daughter in today her blood pressure is sky high and although she is booked in for a cesarean on Thursday it looks like the baby may come sooner so we are looking after number 1 granson. I am just off for a sleep XXX Don

Dina said...

Thanks everybody, for your good wishes and good ideas.

Kay, you are right. If son Edo and his wife and son could come from California, that would be even better.

Don, how exciting. A new grandkid about to be born! Let us all know.

Kris, since they moved from Israel at the beginning of the century, my kids have been back to visit many times.
