The kids had fun, too!

Freddy does well here. He likes it!

Nice view of the Prague Castle behind us.

Amongst all the walking and exploring time,
there was plenty of horsing around time! Oh,
and it was Freddy's birthday to celebrate, too!

Mysterious robbers all over Prague... ;)

Welcome, Baby Elliot!

One of the main reasons we
went to Prague was to celebrate
Elliot Burr Syvertsen's birth
and baptism. If he's anything
like his brother and cousins,
he'll be a smart cookie!

Trip to Prague, Part 3

After the pain involved in uploading a lot of pictures to
a blogspot site, I've decided to open a Flickr! account.

Trip to Prague, Part 2

On our first day, we had a few people overcoming some of the
foods on the plane, and the bumpy ride on the way from the
airport to the hotel. So we all took it easy, and just sat around
catching up. A few of us went over to the Czech Inn with Chris,
to see the fruits of his labor for the last three years or so. He's
the owner, and takes great pride in his work.

The Inn is a REALLY nice hostel complete with a great bar - if
you're ever in Prague on a Monday night, czech out the gaming
night with a huge pot to the winner!

This is a picture of the
escalators up from the Metro.

The breeze coming from
the top downward is
amazing, created by the
trains pulling out of the
underground station.

This "Church of the Holy
Heart" with the Clock
Tower embedded in it is
right around the corner
from my sister's apartment.

The sidewalks are 100%
cobblestone... so are some of the
roadways. They make for
a really nice looking, but rough,
walk or drive.

Trip to Prague, Part 1

So, my sister lives in Prague, Czech Republic, and recently had a new baby boy.

My mom and dad decided that we should all go visit. What I thought would be boring
turned into a lot of fun. The kids had a great time seeing Owen, and we had a very interesting
lesson in Prague history.
