I have never been emotional when leaving a vacation, but I was when we arrived at the airport in Amman to head back to London. I will never forget the warm welcome we felt by the people of Jordan.
Lily sneaking a kiss from my son...
Otis holding his snake to watch the iPad with him--I love this.

We celebrated Ty's birthday in Jordan. Hasan surprised him and arranged for a delicious cake at a cool outdoor coffee shop. We were overwhelmed by his thoughtfulness.
SALT. Salt was an awesome, authentic town-seemingly untouched by tourism.
Amman was a very cool (and crowded!) city.
I will never forget the fresh lemon-mint drinks and the amazing food.
Our last afternoon in Jordan we spent at Hasan's house. We just hung out on his patio, ate and the kids played together. I feel like I have family in Jordan. I was close to tears when we said goodbye to Hasan.
Ty bought this hat in Petra because the sun was so intense. He gave it to Hasan's son Ali.

Our souvenir rug makes me happy every time I open then door. What cherished memories I will always have of Jordan.
