Terrific Trip To Hungary

This post tells you a little bit about our trip.

It comments on the following slideshows so that you would understand what we did or where we were in Hungary.
The first set of pictures shows our first week in Manna's home town, which is Gyor, in the North West corner of Hungary. It is the city of rivers and it is located half way between Budapest and Vienna.
Our journey: We arrived at Budapest on July 30th after more than 20 hours of flying. They had to change our itinerary due to storms in New York. So we flew down to Atlanta and from there to Paris. Then our final destination was Budapest. The kids did amazing. It was great to have 7 adults (including us parents).
At the airport the quints' whole Hungarian family was waiting for us: grandparents, aunts, uncles and great grandma. It was a lovely surprise. We had a "picnic" at the car in the parking lot of the airport. Then everybody headed to their hosts families.
What did we do in Gyor? As you can see in the pictures, we were outside a lot. There is a lovely kid friendly park 5 minutes with strollers from our apartment. Our children loved gathering stuff from the ground, exploring, running without limits, digging, swinging, sliding and playing in the sand box. We met many cute doggies as well. They could even pat the friendly ones so we made lots of friends. We always had enough friends and family to help run after them.
One day we strolled them to downtown. We rode the public bus home. We all loved it thoroughly.
Since everything is so close and just "strolling distance" we went to see the trains while we were waiting for Miss Kate to arrive from Budapest.

For the first weekend the kids' great grandma came to visit us. She loved on them and they enjoyed her as she was spoiling them.
