Hannah was great the entire time and slept like a champ the first night, not so much the second night but that is okay, we are back in our own home tonight so the sleep will surely improve, right? Luke had a BLAST! He loved walking around, seeing the clocks, the bridges and the shops. He adored those stupid gross fake ferret things that are attached to the plastic balls. Thankfully we had him convinced that they were just for kids to look at and you can't buy them. LOL. He thought the Charles Bridge was awesome and he had fun looking at the ducks and boats in the water. We bought a couple cool, inexpensive wooden toys for Luke, a cute dress for Hannah and a watercolor painting for us. We stayed in the Hilton in Old Town and it was a perfect location. We walked miles and miles, enjoyed the local restaurants, frequented Starbucks (I know, I know, but it WAS in the Old Town Market Square which is by the Astronomical Clock Tower which is historical after all so it was coffee with history!) We had the best time. Prague is a city that I could go to over and over and never get tired of it.
Our Hotel - The Hilton in Old Town
Brian and his kiddos. Aww.....
Right up the street from our hotel.
Hannah passed out right before dinner at the same restaurant we ate at last year.
****Luke LAST YEAR - Sept 2008****

Brian & Hannah
We have pictures of us with Luke at this exact spot last year.
I am ashamed to say, we visited this Starbucks THREE times! ;) And it was darn good.

Good morning sunshines!! :)
Luke got some shades this trip!
Fruit stand at the outdoor market
I LOVE these market stands!
This little toy cost practically nothing and it kept Luke occupied at Starbucks and at the restaurant we stopped at for lunch.
Astronomical clock tower, again!
Luke carried that green bag the entire afternoon - he was so excited to have his own purchase.
On the Charles Bridge
Holding the castle, just like last year!

A stop for ice cream!
Brian carried Hannah in the carrier for over an hour and she was awake the whole time, the second I carried her, she passed out and slept for about an hour and a half. This is right after she woke up.
We went to TGIFridays for dinner on the 4th - we went American! :) And Luke got balloons!
And those balloons...
...kept him happy and occupied...
...the rest of the day. :)
(However, he was totally stumped this morning when his balloons that were up on the ceiling before he went to bed, were laying on the floor when he woke up. LOL)
Didn't cha know that Luke is uber famous over here and has to go out incognito? lol
Nobody will ever recognize him! (A number of tourists thought this was adorable. A British lady thought he was too cute and a group of Germans? Czecks? was watching him and smiling - I think someone might of even snapped a picture.)
I made him lose the shades for our photo.
Happy baby in Starbucks!
Happy three year old in Starbucks! (Like his reusable snack bag? Full of trail mix, he carried it with us wherever we went!)
Walking with daddy back to the hotel. We had to check out!
