One of the advantages to living in Shiloh is that it's in the heart of Bible Land, full of history and agriculture. So the kids had no problem finding a place with an easy trail, picnic tables and swings.
Just a minute's stroll from the parking lot we discovered the perfect place for all the food and cooking equipment etc. There were fresh figs for the taking, as long as there was someone who could hang on to a tree and pick them.
Kids of all ages (under a certain weight) enjoyed the swings which were hanging on the trees.
And you can see the welcome shade, considering that we only got started at high noon. Back to the food....
The kids were in charge; I didn't have to bring anything.
The main course was "Bedouin pittot." As you can see, lots of hands pitched in for the kneading.
It took some practice, but the cooking went well. I don't think that real Bedouin add tomato sauce and olives...
Lots of salads were brought, too. It was a feast! I have a great family!!!
