My parents have been here for about 2 1/2 weeks and we've loved having them around.  Erik was able to get a week off last week so we did some traveling.  I hope you aren't bored by pictures of family vacations because that will likely be what you get for the next few blog posts!

We were able to go on our first Maasai Mara safari.

We stayed in a Bush Camp with comfortable tents that were frequently visited by a baby eland.

This is my kind of camping!

My 8 year old is a true cheetah expert and this was certainly the highlight of the trip for him (and me). 

The timing of our trip was perfect to see the annual wildebeest migration.
We saw thousands of wildebeest and zebras cross the Mara River.
