Precious Moments

Another Christmas tradition here in Czech is to take a walk with the family on Christmas Eve.  In our case, it became a post Christmas activity.

Since we were celebrating with the extended family, and the boys love trains, we took them out for a short train ride in a neighboring city.  We then went on the back roads that connected one train station to another.  I was lucky to snap a couple of pics of my little boy with his cousins.


Precious little moments….


I tried to coax them into looking at the camera, but wasn’t very successful.


Someone is always looking away.


A simple thing can also be a reason to play.


In this case, a simple bottle cover became a soccer ball.


Although the walk was not in the nicest part of town, it is one of the most memorable walks we’ve ever had.


Happy New Year, everyone!
