Telluride, Colorado!

On Friday morning, I woke up at 2:30Am and we headed to the airport in Katowice, where we caught a plane and started our journey to Colorado. We flew from Katowice to Frankfurt, then Frankfurt to London and London to Denver, where my Uncle Josh picked us up.

From there we drove to my cousin's house in Denver. We stayed at their house until Sunday morning and then all of my family, my Patty grandparents, the Patty family, and the Schroeder family drove eight hours through beautiful scenery, arriving later that evening in Telluride, Colorado. We walked into a beautiful condo and settled in for the night.

When I woke up on Monday morning I looked out my window and saw the most gorgeous view of the mountains. I walked downstairs and just enjoyed the pretty view. All day I just relaxed, talked with my cousins, listened to music and also checked out little Mountain Village (yes, that is the name of the town). The town was just as cute as can be. After walking a bit through the town, we found a climbing rock, which we climbed and then headed back to the condos.

It's been really fun hanging out with family. I love them all so much! :o)

Anetka & Kaca's Birthday!

On Saturday, I went to my first czech birthday sleepover!

 It was so so much fun! The girls (Klara, Kaca, Anetka-all Czech's and Lucy-American) are all from my church and are just some of my favorite people. They are really fun, talkative and all around happy girls. Anetka and Kaca were celebrating their 16th birthdays, and they invited me! I was so excited, because this was going to be my first sleepover at a Czech's house!
Lucy and I got to Anetka's house at around four and then from then on, we never stopped laughing and having fun. We ate food, played games, talked...ate more food! (there was a LOT of food :)We gave our presents to them and celebrated with a cake. Then I slept the night along with everyone else, which was also fun...we were awake 'til 2 in the morning!

I'm so glad that they invited me and that I got to know them better. And to Anetka and Kaca....HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
