Auburn's Post

Hi my name is Auby.







I love milk!







I have an idea.....




Why don't you give me some milk?







Hey, I thought you were going to give me some milk?!?!?!







No, I will not accept formula!!!







Did you say the milk is all gone?!?!?!?









Oh, you were just joking....very funny.









Seriously, though, the milk goes in here.







How am I going to pay? Let's see, I think I left my wallet in my other onesie....

Christmas Markets






Here in Munich we have Christmas markets. There are several throughout the city. They sell of sorts of different things like food, holiday goodies, ornaments, art, crafts, clothes, ect... Auby and I have been to three so far and my favorite is the one at Marienplatz in the heart of downtown Munich. They really set the mood for the holidays!

Prague


So this week Simon's parents were in town visiting, and we decided to take a little weekend trip. The night before we left we decided on Prague. None of us had ever been there, we didn't have to drive over the Alps, and it was relatively close only about 3 and half hours away. Before we left we had to make sure that the rental car could drive to the Czech Republic, because apparently not all rental cars can, they have to be a certain type. I still don't know why. To make our adventure even crazier, the bag with Simon and my stuff in it somehow didn't make into the car. We did not make this discovery until we were at our hotel. Luckily, Auby's stuff made it and we had our coats and gloves. We did however, miss our thermals it was very cold. I'm sorry that there aren't more pictures of Auburn. She was bundled up in her stroller. Prague is a really neat city and has a lot to explore. Here are some of pictures.....



St. Nicholas Church, where Mozart once played the organ



All of us in front of the astronomical clock in the Old Town.




The Prague Castle. If you look closely, I am in the green coat with the stroller.


I am glad that we are learning German, not Czech.
I couldn't understand anything, and it made German sound much easier.


Charle's Bridge


The Dancing House. Is is suppose to look like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
