Photo Journal - Asturias I

This has been one memorable week! As missionaries, we do not have the opportunity to see our family on holidays and birthdays, so this week we have celebrated for all the holidays and birthdays we have missed. You can only imagine all the things we packed in.

These pictures are only a fraction of the hundreds of digital pictures taken. Sometimes I wonder if digital is better. What ones do I choose? Which pose? Which scene? My B.I.L took all the good ones! He has an incredible eye for perspective and depth.

So please, sit back, and enjoy part I of our Photo Journal off Asturias with the Contreras family.
