Well…I WAS doing a good job getting the blog going again. I blame summer for getting me off schedule once again ;) I do want to go back and document a few things though. More just for my family than for any readers. I want my kids to have a place to go back and see their childhood unfold a little bit. Even I enjoy going back and reading things that I have long forgotten had happened. That along with the fact that I am just constantly reminded that we lead a pretty wonderful life. All credit goes to God for the adventures we’ve gotten to go on and the sweet friends we get to share life with. That said…let’s catch up starting from after the Easter party to mid June when we left for a trip to Texas.
Mg and I went to a meeting in Prague. We spent a whole week kid free thanks to the amazing generosity of our friends Ana and Luc who kept our kids. Yes, we had meetings everyday, but we still had some time each afternoon to get out and see the city a bit and had fun catching up with some old friends. Prague is a city that’s been on my “must see” list for a while now. So thankful that I got to finally go and experience it’s charm first hand!
A free Academica game?! Yes please.
A lazy dinner while watching three stooges in 3-D. So thankful that they are still stooge fans after all these years!
Mg and I could finally get downtown more now that the rain had stopped. This is from a date we had one day…finally trying a cute restaurant that’s been on my radar! (Sometimes he likes taking pictures as much as Cal.)
My boys spent the spring and majority of the summer collecting stickers for their World Cup book. This is the day they FINALLY got Cristiano Ronaldo’s sticker. So exciting!
Dropping Henry off for a birthday party at the science museum. Sometimes I realize I have started taking my city and the beauty around me for granted, then other times I have to stop and remember how cool it is that I’m dropping my 10 year old off at a party in this historic old building. Things that wouldn’t be happening if we still lived in Texas.
We spent a whole day amongst incredible company. Henry had his annual basketball tournament where there are normally lots of inflatables for the kids to play on. We invited two of our favorite families to join us. While normally I have tons of pictures of the kids, this year I don’t for some reason. Partly because they ran off all over the place. Also because it was so windy the inflatables weren’t up half the time. While my tendency is to get frustrated that things aren’t going like they should, our friends have such a great, go with the flow attitude and made the day fun even if we just sat in the grass most of the day. Below are two of my dearest friends, Ana and Sofia.
Man. I must be used to living here. I’m noticing I am taking fewer and fewer pictures as the novelty of things has worn off :/ Here are the few pictures I captured from our kids’ end of year parties at school. I just love them and all their little friends SO much!
We only made it to our local medieval festival for about an hour before the sky unleashed, but it was fun while it lasted!
Well, that about sums up our spring. Next up, summer!
