June 10: Bye-bye, bunnies.
In true Romanian style, we threw ourselves a going-away party on Sunday. Despite trying to give away many of our things, we were inundated with thoughtful, personal, touching gifts, from an ostrich egg to this book of Romanian photographs being inscribed by its giver. It was a wonderful, albeit bittersweet, party.

June 9: Water, water, everywhere.
Giggles + 2 friends + 1 big kid named “Daddy” + 1 water hose + 2 water guns = 1 big, fun, soaking mess!

May 30: Their secret garden.
I wonder what they’re whispering about, don’t you?

May 25: Heavy metal.
Here’s what I envision my knee and my son’s elbow look like inside. Our bone repairs are probably a little more delicate- and precise-looking, right? Right??

May 24: Homebound.
Instead of these balloons, this guy came home with 2 pins in his elbow, 12 stitches, and a soft cast for a souvenir. But we’re home. Home.

May 22: No picnic.
We spent the day touring the countryside around Poprad, Slovakia, and car-picnicking at a scenic overlook of the Tatra Mountains. In the evening, we headed to Aqua City for some water-park fun and a laser show. Little did we know, we’d end up in the emergency room preparing my four-year-old for surgery to pin his broken elbow. Yes, it happened again.

We’re Slovakia-bound! Tatra Mountains, here we come.

May 20: Stop the presses.
Boisterous brothers. Crank wheels on old printing presses. A perfect match.

May 7: Eye shadows.
Longer days? Mean more light. More light? Means ample opportunity to see my babies bathed in the beautiful Romanian sun. (It also means blackout curtains, later bedtimes, and general pint-sized crankiness, but we won’t go into that.)

May 4: Echo location.
Several prime tourist attractions in Romania are salt mines. We’ve been to the one in Turda, which is closest to us, a few times. This one is in Praid. The kids love running at breakneck speed through the big cavernous nothingness and shouting words that end in vowels just to hear their echoing voices. Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! Whooooooooooooooa! Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! This works best when it’s not very crowded, like here.
