Cyprus days 3 and 4

Monday we spent exploring more of the island. We had lunch down by the Mediterranean Sea – the view from our table was gorgeous!

We happened upon a great children’s park with rides. Clare most enjoyed the “CHOO CHOO!”. She was very enthusiastic!

Tuesday I slept in (12 straight hours…hands down my favorite part of vacation so far!) while Shawn and Clare braved the pool. I woke up to find them both shivering! It was 70 out but had been in the 50s overnight.

Tuesday afternoon we visited Paphos Zoo. We saw many kinds of birds, giraffes, zebras, two large tortoises, lions, tigers, emus, and many others. Clare loved the zoo!

Last night we hung at home while Shawn made his famous cabbage soup. Yummy. I may have just had some for breakfast. The excitement for the evening was getting locked out and briefly thinking we would have to sleep outside. Luckily we walked to a local restaurant and the owner knew the number of our landlord. Whew. Clare had no shoes on and a wet diaper. Would’ve been a rough, cold night outside!

Great family news out of Quincy – we have a new cousin – Zoey Bozarth! Welcome to the world cutie – good luck growing up with our crazy family! Can’t wait to meet you this summer.

Also my Aunt Jane is home recovering from donating her kidney to her husband, my Uncle Pete. So far so good, fingers crossed for a swift and successful recovery for both of them. Aunt Jane you are an inspiration to all of us!
