Turkey Time no not the bird, its time for my mom and I to go to the country, Turkey. Most of you have asked or are asking why Turkey? Well it's because my mom and I were both watching "Where in the world is Matt Lauer" on the Today Show. Matt was cooking near the Blue Mosque. My mom called me for our daily phone call. I told my mom that Istanbul looked so cool and we should go there. Well that's all it took that day she looked up her travel group and found that it was fairly inexpensive compared to Europe. That is why Turkey. It has been so interesting to see the reaction when I tell people that we are going. Some look at me and say "Why there? What's in Turkey?" Others that have been there or have known someone that has gone there they say "You are going to love it there its so great and there is so much to see." A week ago I was a little nervous to go, I had all kinds of weird dreams. But now I am just excited. We leave tomorrow in the morning. We will be gone for two weeks. This will be the longest I have been without my boys. I will miss them lots but I wouldn't travel half way across the world for just a week. We are planing to call and hopefully skype them a few times. Paul is such a good dad he will be with them the whole time. My mom and I are going to blog about our daily adventures on Traveling Pansies. Go and look on it while I'm gone. This is one of many cool things we are going to see.
