Uncle Tom and Aunt Cristin have come and gone, much to our joy and subsequent sadness. The kids still talk about them. Just today little Thomas confidently asserted that they would be coming back soon, and when we happened to be on the floor of the building where they stayed a few days ago, he looked up at me hopefully and asked if we were going to see them. Here are finally a few pictures from their stay with us over the Easter Octave.
Little Edmund with his Uncle Tom
Maria reading stories to her Aunt Cristin
The little princess in her Easter dress
On Tuesday we all went to the zoo in Vienna -
Thomas took a swat at one of the goats in the petting zoo
There were also lots of little baby goats running around
The fake animals are fun too
Checking out the Rhinoceros
Lisa's fine camera work from the Gloriette overlooking Vienna
Aunt Katie took her turn doing some of the heavy lifting
A long day at the zoo can be tiring
The next day in Salzburg
Back at home somebody slipped Edmund some Easter chocolate
And, in honor of the feast of St. George the Dragonslayer (April 23, relocated this year to May 1), Lisa made a special cake for Edmund. Thomas and Maria made sure it was dead with their knife-swords before we ate it.
