Chatter Box

Vinson has become quite the chatterbox lately. He loves repeating animal sounds and seems to be learning a new word every day. Here are his words:

Czech and English
Bye Bye (pa pa)

Animal Sounds
If it's on a farm he can say it including Cock a doodle doo

Ahoj (hello)
Diky (thank you)
houpy houpy (swing swing)
Dobrou noc (good night): when Vince says it it sounds lik row notes

GOOD NEWS!!! We now have a camera that can record sounds so you can hear him for yourself!!

Together Again

After having the family in town for three and a half weeks, we were prepared to have more guests! We've had company for an entire month, but I was so excited to see Court again. Courtney and I met at BYU freshman year. We slept two rooms apart but lived in Alina and Adrienne's dorm which was in the middle. I hadn't seen her for 3 years. She came with three friends and I got to give them the grand tour of Prague. I'm getting pretty good at this, if I do say so myself! They were like a breath of fresh air, so excited to see everything and had so much energy. Her friends watched Vinson for us so we could climb the tower in St. Vitus (the church behind us in the picture). It was my first time climbing it and was awesome!

Dan and I decided to get up early and hopefully see some mountains. It looked to both of us like it was really blue and beautiful outside, BUT the blue was clouds. This is how we felt about it:

Then we hiked to this amazing waterfall!

Unfortunately there wasn't any more time to be in Interlaken, we had to get to Lucern. The whole time I thought to myself, I'll sleep on the train. But who could sleep with this beautiful ride?

Lucern has it's origional castle walls up that you can climb through. Vince was a good sport.
Check out this heavy duty Swiss Army knife.

It was a long walk, but I insisted that we go see the lion. I'm glad we did it was AMAZING!

Of course we saw the Lucern bridges. These bridges have paintings in the ceilings. It's really cool, but I'm sure they were painted during the plague. The most popular thing shown was a skeleton.
