We just got back from our trip to Egypt. It was awesome!!!! We started in Cairo and then took a cruise up the Nile. We just scratched the surface of all there is to see there. Although, you could probably spend a lifetime there and still not see it all. Harper was such a trooper. She really liked riding in the backpack. We carried her around like the Queen of Egypt. We're not sure how impressed she was with the antiquities :-)
Philae Temple in Aswan. It was actually underwater for 70 years after the English built a dam on the Nile in 1900. In the 70s, there was a $15 million project to relocate the entire temple to a man made island nearby the original site. They moved and reconstructed the entire temple stone by stone.
While we were there, several tourists asked to take their picture with us. One time, a family even asked Sarah to hold their son for a picture. He was super cute and had even gotten a mini shumagh for a souvenir.

Harper really enjoyed and got lots of use out of the monogrammed hat that she got from my boss in West Palm. Thank you Larry and Heidi!
