A Polish Birthday Weekend!

Beau’s 9th birthday this year fell on a long, four day weekend. We decided what better way to celebrate than with our Polish friends at their home near Krakow, Poland! We set off for a road trip packed with all eight of us in the van and, with very little planning and the goal of “just have fun!” we made our way to the outskirts of Krakow. For the next 3 days we enjoyed each other’s company, ate GREAT food, had lovely mini-tours around the main square of Krakow thanks to our friend Inga, and found some fun indoor activities for the kids to do in the wintry weather! This trip only scratched the surface of the delights Krakow has to offer and we will definitely be back to explore more soon!

The kids enjoyed Kulkowo, a little indoor creative play space in the mall in Krakow center.

Underlit horse and carriage rides were lovely, encircling the square.

Our main destination was the DRAGON!

Beau, daddy and Jan went go-karting as the girls went to a candy shop!

It was Beau’s first time go-karting and Derek said he couldn’t believe how fast he went and how GOOD he did! He loved it and can’t stop talking about how fun it was. How fun to do this with a friend for your birthday!
Winner!

Thanks for the lovely hospitality, Inga, Jan and Joanna! We loved visiting your homeland and staying in your beautiful home, eating the great food, playing, exploring, making fires every day and learning a little bit about Poland! Until next time!
