Wild Animals

This weekend the sun was shining brightly in Budapest, so we ventured out, as a family of four, for the first time ever!   With the recent addition of a baby giraffe to the zoo family, it was a no brainer that we go see the wild animals. 
First order of business:  get our little wild animals suited up.  It's sunny, but still a little on the chilly side.
Upon arrival, Claudia hit the ground running. 
When Claudia saw the tigers, three of which were eating what was clearly recognizable as a side of beef, she asked "are the tigers going to eat ME?"  Daddy replies "of course not."   Claudia, slightly disappointed, responds "well, am I not delicious?"
Silly girl.
My favorites.  A monkey of some sort.  Russell was concerned that the barriers separating them from us were inadequate, though, so we didn't linger.  To be fair, the barrier consisted of a shallow moat and a few very low wires.  Best not to take changes with these kind of things.
Look how excited Paddy was!  Scowl!!
Little man really did it up right for St. Paddy's Day.  Eat, sleep, poop.  Repeat.  Repeat.  Repeat.
And some cuddling too.  Repeat.  Repeat. Repeat.
Look!  He's blowing you a kiss!  Kind of!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!   Welcome Spring!


  1. Please tell me, what was Russell's response to "Well, am I not delicious?"

    1. Stephanie, he called her bluff. When faced with possibility of being tiger chow, she decided it was ok that they not eat her. So silly. Loves it.

  2. hehehe, she is just so funny!!! and oh my goodness, Paddy is just too adorable!!!

  3. Love the delicious comment.

    Such cute kiddos and an adorable mommy snuggling her baby. Cutest family ever.
