This was to be our last vacation with our friends that we've been on so many European vacations with because they are moving back stateside soon. So we first met them in Prague on Saturday afternoon. We met them for lunch first and then we headed out to get ice cream in a "donut"cone and see a war memorial. Then we went to Saturday vigil Mass at Our Lady Victorious where the Infant of Prague is kept.

After Mass we had reservations at a Mexican restaurant called Cantina. It was the best Mexican I've had in Europe. It was delicious! The food was divine for the entire Prague stay, so forgive me if I gush a little here and there.
The last time I was in Prague was in May or June of 2008 when I was pretty pregnant with Isaac. I remember it being very hot then, and I was unprepared for how hot it would be this time. Especially, if you consider that it had been pants and sweater weather in Germany the whole week prior to this trip. We traveled slightly north east and the weather must have just flipped a switch because it was very hot. Add that to a lot of uphill walks and the kids having no adjustment to the heat, and they were not as happy campers in between sites and meals.

After our beer garden and hot dog stand, we went on a huge hike to get to a brewery for dinner. I know that seems weird, but when you've seen your sights and got your souvenirs for people, the only thing left on the to do list is eat and drink more of the local flavor. I shared a hamburger (also delicious) with Isaac since I had just eaten that amazing hot dog. Although the walk was so long and steep and hot that I had worked up a little bit of an appetite again. You wouldn't believe the amount of water the kids drank at dinner!

Notice the beautiful sky, while standing on this hill talking to a Canadian and an American, it quickly changed to a dark gray. We did not make it back without the rain starting up, but our friends' hotel was closer so we rode out the worst of it there and then headed home kind of late.
