Abba-Travel: Still jet-lagged & Trip to the aviary

I am posting this very late. We've been here for a few days now and I am still a bit jet-lagged and can't fall asleep properly. Kiki is doing just fine though and has been pretty much since we got here. She was extremely excited about her special bed at Savta's house and outside of one wake-up incident has been sleeping amazingly well. This pic was from the first night:

And this one is from the day we went to the aviary and she crashed hard as soon as we got home:

Oh yeah, the aviary. It was my sister's idea to take the kids there yesterday since it was not going to be too hot outside and it is very well shaded. As soon as we walked in we saw a bunch of Cockatoos and African Grey Parrots. Which we got to hold. Yeah, that right. Check it out:

Kiki also got to hold and pet a few hamsters (I have no idea why they had hamsters at the aviary, but I also don't know why they have a terrarium. Maybe the hamsters are the snake food?):

There were A LOT of bird to look at. Here's a small sample:

We even got to feed some beautiful blue parrots (yeah, that my hand he's munching on, they feed on human flesh! No, not really):

We ended up going to the parrot show and all the kids got to participate including my mom. It was a lot of fun seeing what these birds can do. After that we spent some time in a huge play areas for the kids called Junga Junga. There are two girls in the following picture (Kiki and my cousin Roni). Can you find them?

Well, now I am really exhausted. Just like the kids were at the end of that day. I will have some more pictures and posts up later. We are having the best time on our vacation and have been to the pool, the beach, visiting family and loving every minute of it.

The only thing that would make it better was if Cynthia was here with us :-(
We miss you sweetie! We'll see you soon!

Looks like an awesome time! Everyone (even you) look like you are having fun.

We found out, if you want the kids to just go to bed without any complaints...just take them to a water park for 9 hours. Worked like a charm.
