A Typical Czech Weekend for an Atypical Mama in Czech

Last weekend, we went to the mountains and spent our weekend in a cottage with some friends.    We were blessed with perfect weather, so we spent a lot of time outdoors.  The scenery in the meadows was very beautiful.

My son had a lot of fun even with very simple things.

We went to a little village close to Broumov, on the other side of Adršpach.   In one of our hikes,   we came very close to Poland.

I’ve never seen border markers other than the actual borders with guards and everything.  It was the first time I ever saw a border marker in the forest.  Here is one of them.

Our friends chose  easy hikes since we were there with children.  It was also meant to accommodate my capabilities.  I’m glad that despite the heaviness in my belly, I still managed to walk and enjoy it.  Albeit, I didn’t make it through everything.  Plus, at this stage of my pregnancy, frequent bathroom visits is another big obstacle.

My son and my husband had a lot of fun though.  My husband found his little treasure – a mushroom.

On the next day’s hike, I decided to sit it out.  I just couldn’t manage to jump off rocks anymore.

I just busied myself with capturing images of my loved ones.

Anyhow, everything went well and I’m glad we made that trip.  It was one very typical Czech weekend and one worth remembering.

  1. I am glad to hear you took it easy Grace. You know you were out in fresh air, you got to be with your boys…sometimes that is all you need…
    What is that big, red vehicle looking object?

  2. I thought the border marker was neat. (And I was going to mention how great the father-son picture is, but everyone else has, so your head is probably already swollen with pride in your happy family.) 😀
