Out and About in Baku (with pictures!)

Thursday was day two of Brandon's Novruz vacation.  The snow here has finally melted (after snowing three times last week) and the sun decided to come out and warm the temperature up to a balmy fifty degrees.  With such nice weather, Brandon and I decided to take the plunge and go on an outing with the children.

The car still isn't registered yet, to we took the children on the Metro to the bulvar, a promenade that runs along the Caspian.

We started with lunch from a local fast-food chain, "Miracle Bakery."

Followed by pictures.  The girls had their first photo shoot with some local girls.  After Egypt, we were happy to only have one picture request.

And then a ride on the best thing in the world - a carousel.  I've seen at least four around town.  I suppose they're very popular.

Edwin was dubious at first.

But then he decided it was fun.

 After the carousel, we attempted to stroll along the bulvar, but the locally cold foggy weather was too much for the children.  So we went home.

Thanks for the great pictures! Nice to see some of Baku itself.

Don't tell me - Kathleen took the picture of you guys. It looks about right to be from the perspective of a five-year-old.

I love Edwin on the carousel! And what's this - his cute older sisters gleefully riding away in the background? Nice photo! And I'm glad Edwin eventually shed his dubiousness. :)

Kathleen and Sophia's sweaters by Aunt Kathleen are lovely! And Edwin makes me laugh.
