Dobry Den This is Kolin

We will touch on the most important stuff first...Taimi girl can pull herself up all on her own and is crawling in her own special way : )

And now I present to you the town Kolin. This is what they call "the square" it is a area shaped like a square that houses the town hall, a bunch of resturants, a castle aka church, shops, and on Fridays vendors meet in the middle to hagle and sell their goods.

All the roads are mostly cobblestone which gets old after awhile especially when you are pushing a stroller
This is another picture of The Square. We come here to eat a few times a week.
One of the largest bakerys I have ever seen is on this road it's icredibly packed in the morning and the entire road smells of fresh bread it's really neat.
And this is the inside of the bakery (this picture shows only half of it)
This is a side street that I love but it stinks when walking down it so I am not sure what on the other
And this is where we reside. All of these places are maybe a 5 minute walk from our house maybe less. It's super easy to get around especially when you walk because they don't really have designated places to park and when you do park you usually always have to pay.
We don't really have anything new to report Christopher is still doing 2 a days (practicing twice a day) once at 10am and he goes again at 5:30. Taimi is getting around really well which enables her to get into basically everything. Chris and I have really adjusted to the time change but Taimi girl is still struggling however she is improving instead of going to bed at 6am and waking up at 2pm she is falling asleep around 1 or 2am and waking up at 12pm.
Life is good we couldnt be more excited to go to church and meet some people that speak English we talked to the missionaries and about 1/3 of the ward is American...YAHOOOOOOOOOOO

that's so cool. i've always wanted to live somewhere where everything is walking distance. that would be so much fun. That's awesome that so much of your ward is american! good luck on sunday!
Congrats on taimi's mobility! she'll show you everything she can get into, then she'll get taller and you slowly end up baby proofing from the ground up. :)

What an awesome town!! It looks seriously so neat. I laughed when you said the cobblestone got old because I've been thinking of how neat it'd be to have cobblestone every where but didn't once think about heals or strollers or well...reality! haha The bakery sounds like bliss! I would love to smell the fresh baked bread.

I'm so happy your family is settling in nicely and Taimi's getting more used to the time change. I can't wait to hear about your ward - what a blessing it's 1/3rd Americans! WOOT WOOT!

Thanks for the update - keep em coming!
