Today is Family Day! After breakfast we decided to walk through Old Town. We had been told that after walking through Old Town for about 15 minutes we would come to a castle, so off we went.
The weather was beautiful and we were enjoying our stroll to the castle. However, after 30 minutes....45 minutes....and an hour, we still had not found the castle. Finally, after asking, we found out we were just another five minutes or so away. As you can imagine, we weren't real sure we believed them! But, sure enough, a short time later we found it. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!!! In fact, we were so disappointed that I did not even take ONE picture. What we did see was a playground. The kids were all excited and so we let them play for awhile (Ron and I relaxed on a bench - I had hurt my foot and after walking that long it was pretty sore).
After the hour walk back to the hotel we had sure worked up an appetite for some lunch. And guess what we had found in the mall we went to on Day 2 ???? PIZZA HUT!!! That was our next stop. When we walked in the mall, we saw all the toys from Toy Story and took a picture with them.
After lunch we went bowling (it was in the mall too). The last time we went bowling was in 2002 - which means the boys were very young, Sarah was a baby, and before Caleb's time completely. It was fun! We ended up having to play two games (the first one was a practice for everyone).
Ron showing us how it's done.
Daniel putting everything in to it.
Andrew getting the hang of it.
Sarah was such fun to watch. I don't think she ever used the same ball - plus she used a different weight each time. Her goal was to get a strike...or at least a spare. She was thrilled to end up with several spares.
Isn't he strong!
Caleb was doing good to get his ball down to the pins. So after he rolled it...
he would watch it roll while jumping up and down, clapping
He made it through most of the game. Toward the end though, he found something a little more exciting and let the other kids take over his turn.
After bowling, we got an ice cream cone before heading back to the hotel. Later that evening the boys and Ron took our rented trailer and loaded up a bunch of Russian literature (John/Romans and chic tracts) to bring back with us. This was a huge blessing and saved us lots of money in postage.
