More martha!

Its been fun watching the little rosebud unfurl...5 1/2 weeks little martha is becoming much more awake and alert.  she is so strong, and content...such a little cutie! and getting cuter all the time.  I am leaving London on Sunday, so wont get to watch her so closely anymore.  I will miss the snugglely cuddles.

I know, I know, its a lion! but it was part of the fun yesterday. Sam pushed Oscar up on to the huge lion.  then sam wanted a turn and Os was trying to push him up with his head!!  It looked SO funny!

3 days in Budapest

Rachel and I enjoyed staying right down town in an apartment.  We have fun checking out the sights by day and by night.  The Basillica was the view out the main bedroom window.
a walk along the river

The Seycheni can have your own personal space in the steam!  the massage was welcome!

Madame Butterfly was playing at the opera house...very dramatic! presented in Italian and interperted into Hungarian...good thing rach can read the Hungarian!or i wouldn't have been in the know!

The Spanoza!  just the greatest little coffee shop, will definitly go back there again!
