While others were shopping, we hung out around the shops. Chloe and Tychon had fun playing hand jive games. Tychon was such a good sport to let Chloe teach him all her girlie games.
First, we had to take a ride in a taxi cab that was probably 20 years old and had no seatbelts. It was about a 40 minute drive out to the preserve and Chloe got herself a good nap on the way.
The drive was worth it, though. The preserve was more like The Garden of Eden.
We heard the monkeys before we saw them, and then, before we could blink, there was a monkey making his way down to us, and his tiny little baby brother following. Even the preserve owners were shocked about this, because the baby hadn’t ever come down that far before. He was so adorable to watch–just like a baby learning to crawl or walk, his swinging from branch to branch was uncoordinated and wobbly and oh so cute.
Ha ha ha, that is so funn… Oh, I'm sorry, that's terrible.
(tee hee hee)
The photos are beautiful, the kids are darling, looks like a wonderful time. So much fun!
What, no pictures of the "incident"? Great story!
What Andrea said. And, that photo cracks me up too! What cute kids you have!
Lara, I'm sure your Romanian taxi skills just kicked in on that taxi ride! 🙂
Hilarious story, Lara, the monkeys are definitely characters–I think my brother Donny is still scarred from being attacked by one in Guatemala!
I am so disappointed that there is no photographic evidence of the baboon-doo hairdo.
Those pix remind me so much of Puerto Rico.
And your pictures are amazing! I'm so jealous!
lol, wow. Only a woman of infinite confidence and knowledge of her own value would see being pooped on by a baboon as a sign of good fortune. Bravo Lara, Bravo.
What a good sport your were. I am not so sure that I would have been. Great pictures too.
awesome pictures 🙂 your daughters are SO cute!
Just a goodie to put on your list next time you have to tell 5 random facts about yourself… 🙂
Thanks for sharing. At least I can live vicariously thorough you. AMAZING!
hahahaha! That is hilarious! Maybe not at the time, but a great memory. Gorgeous pictures and I was laughing so hard at the one of Sophie! Your description of her was so perfect & fitting to her expression. Love it!!
Oh, man! The most interesting animal that's ever pooped on me is a pigeon. I think you *are* going to be lucky for the rest of your life—you need at least some compensation for that!
And I can't believe you once wrote that you thought you were boring. You get a gold medal in "interesting life" for this story!
We are headed to Belize next Feb. Thanks for the Baboon heads up.
What a beautiful place! They should sell those little umbrella hats for situations like that.
The whole trip sounds just amazing.
What great photos. I am very envious. Well, not of the poop but of everything else:)
What a great thing to add to your list of lifetime firsts! (And hopefully lasts, at least as far as the poo goes…)
I LOVE Belize! What a great trip! (Except for the poop, of course!)
Am laughing so hard. SO HARD that I am choking.
Either you cleaned up the story, or you were very calm about the poop thing. I think I'd have had a little fit right there.
I definitely think you get the good luck for life award. Still… how cool is that?
You are seriously lucky! Chosen, I would say. What an adventure, what cute baboons and what great shots of your own little baboons, too!
Hahahahha, oh my goodness, that is funny! and cool at the same time. 🙂
Love this blog, keep up the great work wish you all the best..
