A day at the Budapest Zoo

We saw lots of crazy animals! Like Andys and Hentes' hee-hee

I got to pet a zebra!

The petting zoo had tons of guinea pigs! With little houses and stores. It was a mini village that had been taken over by guinea pigs.

Family Picture! We are all looking at the camera.

Kira and Novalie

In the bat cages they have you walk right in with them and many are so close you can touch them! Anyone say, Rabies?.

I also touched a camel. I couldn't get over how close the animals were!

3-D Fishy Movie

Eden, Novie and Kira ready for the day!

It was a blazing hot day and most of the animals were hiding in the shade waiting until dinner time. But the animals who were out walked right up to us giving us the opportunity to pet them! The girls had a blast at the petting zoo and playground. It was so nice to get out of the house and spend time as a family with our friends.

Novie's first wedding

We took Novalie to her very first wedding today. I cannot imagine seeing the world through the eyes of a 2 year old but today must have been a small dream come true for Novie. This is why, Novie saw Timi and Randall walking down the path today in front of the castle adorned in suit and wedding gown and declared, "Mommy! Look, there's a PRINCESS!!!"
She began running towards the path to get a closer look. We got right next to the aisle as they passed and I could not get over what this scene must have appeared like to Novie. A beautiful radiant bride on the arm of her future glowing husband, walking down a pebble path from a glorious castle. Novie held her little breath as the "princess" passed and exclaimed, "mommy, I'm going to be a princess!" I know she will be that in terms of marriage one day. But to me she already is. I couldn't help but think, please wait as long as you can, for your daddy's sake. ;)

I wanted to freeze that moment in time forever. I cannot wait to share this story with my little princess on her wedding day
