A Visit with the Zyllas

Spent the day with my good friend Brenda and her two adorable kids. Rick and Brenda were neighbors of ours in Guam. Unfortunately Rick just started a new job so he was not able to come. It was great chatting with Brenda again, and her little babies are now Big kids now. Drove up to Confluence, PA and stayed with them in a wonderful bed and breakfast. Got to meet her sisters family and spend some quality time with Brenda, 3 year old TROY and 4 year old Nova Leigh. They are getting so big and I cant believe how much they have grown. We went to this really cool petting zoo/wild animal park and the kids had fun feeding all kind of exotic animals. It was hard to imagine that such a cool place was tucked in the middle of NOWHERE! Enjoy the pictures!
