Český ráj (Bohemian Paradise)

Monday, the 6th was a Czech holiday so we decided to go on a výlet (day trip - it's such a good word and there's not a really good English equivalent).
We had been wanting to visit Český ráj for a long time and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
As you can see, we brought Vinson's "ikle" (motorcycle) along. It helps him walk a lot faster... Due to the nature of the trails we ended up walking on (see pictures), I got to carry ikle quite a bit. It was all worth it though for the last kilometer of trail, when it was the miracle that helped Vince finish the 5k hike. He's quite a trooper, when he needs to be.
Benji had a lot of fun walking (with help) up and down the rock stairs. He is a really happy kid most of the time. He loves being independent and mobile!

Wow! That looks awesome. I'm glad you guys got to check it out. Hey, we had a family fast for you guys today. I know we probably should have told you about it BEFOREHAND, but that would require some planning on my part, therefore it didn't get done. But we love you so much! Can't wait to see you in a month!!!
