Now that Shauna and Nordi are very mobile it’s difficult to catch the whole family in photos. However, with a little patience it can be done. 🙂

What a nice family portrait! They all are so white, fluffy and beautiful!

It’s good to be close to mama but we understand she needs some time for herself, too …

Mama, why don’t you go and have a little rest. We can manage ….

We must remember that our mama needs a time-out every now and then.

Dear Sis, you’re so right! Luckily we are very intelligent and understanding kids!!

Ying and Yan

We can play separately but we even love to be close to each other cuddling and hugging.

He ain’t heavy – he’s my brother! Do you remember this song by the Hollies?

Gerda’s time-out didn’t last too long. The kids were hungry so she had to open the milk bar.

After a good meal it’s time for a nap.

  1. Dear Anna!
    You bring daily many wonderful pictures of Gerda and her kids. Nordi and Shauna are very nice playful kids. They are lovely to each other and can play sometimes without their mother.
    Hugs
    Ludmila

  2. Gerda hat es fein, ihre zwei süssen können sich toll beschäftigen, so hat sie etwas Zeit zum relaxen. Danke für die bezaubernden Bilder.

    Liebe GrĂĽĂźe, Erika

  3. Dear Anna and Mervi!
    Thank you for these cute impressions of the Sibirian polar bear family.
    One photo is more beautiful than the other – I can´t tell which one I like most – and the affectionate subtitles fit perfectly.

    Gerda and her sweethearts really deserve a better enclosure than this concrete construction.
    Nevertheless the bears look gorgeous, are doing well and enjoy being together.
    I´m convinced they are truly loved by their keepers and visitors and hope for the future!

    Hugs
    Anke

  4. Dear Anna and Mervi
    Gerda, Nordi and Shauna look so content and beautiful in the photos, The Zoo and the keepers must be doing a great job. Many thanks for letting us visit them so often.

  5. Ich hab die drei Guten besonders gern,natĂĽrlich auch den Kai mit!

  6. CHARMING! CHARMING! CHARMING!
    One cannot repeat this enough – neither when the fantastic photos ar concerned, dear ANNA (simply great!) nor when the imaginative, funny, affectionately expressed subtitles are concerned, dear MERVI (simply great!).
    Thanks to the both of you!!

    Re: MERVI’s QUOTE: The Hollies: „He Ain’t Heavy, He’s my brother!“

    Thanks for having quoted this wonderful song of “The Hollies”, dear MERVI.
    Of course, I had to make a search immediately.
    Of course, I know this song but when I was young I liked to sing but never knew the names of interpreters/performers and/or did understand the lyrics of their songs (neither in English nor in German!). This song when I heard and really listened now made me very sad for an unknown reason even BEFORE I did see the pictures of the version with lyrics. . . .

    It’s amazing, dear MERVI, how YOU can remember so many singers AND their songs and even quote the titles and lyrics of their songs. Thanks for also sharing this talent with your readers , quite often!

    For those who might also like to get a bit deeper in the matter, here are two links:

  7. Thank you very much dear Mervi and Anna.
    Best wishes to Gerda, Nordi and Shauna.

  8. Liebe Mervi, liebe Anna,

    die Twins sind ja inzwischen auch schon ganz schön gewachsen.

    Das sind zwei richtige Models, so sĂĽĂź wie sie vor der Kamera posieren.

    Danke für die wunderschönen Bilder der süßen Eisbären-Familie.

    Liebe GrĂĽĂźe
    Monika
