Well, these guys are stunning in their own way. Here's the deal. We went to Belogradchik first in May, but... I never posted the pics. I meant to, I did. But it didn't happen. So the brilliant green pics are from May (those are the most stunning ones, in my opinion), and there are a few from last week. Ben, Zac's cousin/buddy, is visiting so we took him there. But most of the pics are from May, because it was more vibrant then. And I liked it better. So yeah. Up above are Zac and Ben with Nuala and Bran. Now pics from May:
Channeling her inner mountain goat.Very awesome. I just love it. WHY, oh why does it have to be three hours away?! Not so bad Nuala-and-Bran-wise, but very bad Maeve-wise. For some reason six hours in her car seat is unappealing.
Tiny Maeve! Only three months old then...
Cute N&B! And even THEY look littler. 'Cause they were.
Shooting imaginary arrows through the inner fortress arrow slots. It was quite windy...Isn't this shot cool?! Kinda precarious looking, what with the babe just draped across his arm. But just look at that view!
We got to the very top just as a storm was coming in. We had a blast watching the lightning split the sky and seeing it all roll closer and closer.
This pic is from our trip last week. Zac is sooooo strong, holding that rock up by himself... my heart is all a-flutter... ;)
The landscape looks a bit different with the green gone. Still pretty spectacular, just not-so green.
Zac and Ben piggy-backed Bran and Nuala over to these rocks. Maeve and I hung out on a safer rock, though she kept yelling at them. She doesn't like to be left behind. Too bad her mommy was nervous about jumping from rock to rock while wearing her. See? We might take 'em paragliding and body surfing and off waterfalls, but we're careful with our little tykes! Step by step, right? And yeah, Bran and Nuala tandem paraglide with Zac. They love it! I've gotta put up some of those pics. Anyway. Maeve missed everyone and kept yelling for them to come back.
