Madrid-The Royal Palace



....I wouldn't EVEN know what to do with myself if I were royalty and this was my house...very cool. My favorite room was the throne room, Jason's was the chapel and the boys liked the armory...
Wow, can you imagineActually the armory was pretty cool, though Jason got busted....the guard kept saying 'cabellero' to Jason who happened to be taking a picture of a horse, by resting the camera on a pedestal...Apparently the pedestal wasn't to be touched...anyhow neither Jason nor I registered that she was talking to him...I figured she was pointing out that that was a horse..'caballo' pretty close...it's when Jason and I started calling each other 'Americano Estupido' because boy did we feel like idiots, wasn't the first time or the last time on this trip either. After a bunch more walking around we took a chance and ate at a Mexican resteraunt...we felt so at home.
I wonder if I could get Colleen to paint that on my ceiling? Two young recruits reporting to gaurd duty.
You can only say 'don't touch' so many times before a melt-down. Side note...Zac is going through a 'licking' stage and often I heard Jason say, "Oh man Zac, don't lick that, it was around during the plague!"

I love that picture of Isaac- he looks very much like the subject of Munch's "The Screem."

Very dramatic.

i always wondered why i liked that painting, maybe it's because it reminds me of my children?
