Fast Arriving Friday!

When you pretend to be a day behind all week long, Friday arrives a day early!! If only we could do this every single week!! So, now it is Friday and I am looking forward to spending a nice relaxing week with my husband. We have no big special plans and I have no problem keeping it that way. I think that tonight we are going to go out to dinner and then come home and catch up on some TV shows. I have no idea what we will do on Saturday and Sunday and frankly, I don't really care! The weather is supposed to be crappy, which is par for the course, and I don't mind chilling out.

It just dawned on me yesterday that I never finished post pictures from Prague! Only a week late now! Here are a few from our day of sightseeing on Saturday. We were really lucky with the sunny weather but don't be fooled, it was still FRIGID! When we left our hotel in the morning to set off on our adventures I realized this "structure" that I had clearly missed in the dark the night before.This is one unlucky dude! First we walked back to the Old Town square to check it out during the day. It was just at beautiful in the sunshine! In the picture below, the Astronomical Clock is apart of the tower to the left.Close up of Deaner in front of the Astronomical Clock. You can tell by his attire what the temperatures were like!Deaner really wanted to climb to the top of the Astronomical Clock tower and against my will, I agreed to do it. I could just imagine myself huffing and puffing up the stairs to the top and I was not looking forward to it. Luckily for me, there was an ELEVATOR!! And I STILL got the credit for agreeing to walk up the steps because I didn't know about elevator until after I agreed to go up the steps! From the top of the tower we had some awesome views of the entire city.The views were so cool. Afterwards we walked to the tram stop to ride up the hill to the Prague Castle, which you keep seeing in the background of all these pictures. It was a funny experience since we couldn't figure out how to pay once we got on the tram! Thank goodness the ride was short and we were able to hop off without getting arrested! The castle was beautiful up close and we had a beautiful walk back down the hill afterwards.After walking around the Castle and Church grounds we started the walk back down the hill. Which perhaps had the prettiest views of all.We had a few more adventures during the day including riding a funicular up a hill and seeing a "house of mirrors". I felt a little mislead by this "house" of mirrors since it was really only one room and it took about 5 seconds to walk through it. Deaner looked at me and admitted that he might have made a mistake by making us pay the admission. But it was pretty funny. We had another delicious dinner that night and Sunday after a good breakfast we headed back to Germany! Thankfully we weren't accosted by any car jackers on the way home and the trip home was easy. Sorry for so many pictures but once I get started I just have to post all of them! I hope that everyone has a great weekend!!
