Bex comes a callin'

Bex and Amanda came to visit last weekend from jolly ol' know.

UPDATE: More pictures, including a photo of a monkey riding a pony*, can be found here.

Jack and Bex had a good time playing at the park...

pretented to be "real" Americans rather than effete East Coast (or worse, expatriate) America haters. Salt of the earth, those two.

They even waited paitently for their blinis with cinnamon apples and dulce de leche.

And at the end of the day, they shared a tender moment while riding the "train" (really a series of connected cushman golf cart-type cars) around the park.

*The pony-riding monkey was at the Kyiv circus, so I didn't breathlessly report the siting immediately after it happened. It was a planned entertainment event, afterall. There was to be a much more interesting monkey-riding episode at the circus, but the huge pig was having none of it and turned and ran back through the curtain, leaving the monkey without his trusty steed.
