We went up to College Station for Halloween. Kate had a great time with her cousins! She loved the treats! surprise, surprise!
Mike has been traveling a ton for work lately. I was lucky enough to come on one of his trips. We went to Krakow, Poland. It was AWESOME! I loved everything about it...the European charm, the food, shopping, and sightseeing. Mike worked the first 3 days and the last 2 days we packed in all the sights and sounds of Krakow and the surrounding area.
The miners carved out a beautiful cathedral about a mile deep into the mine.
We visited the Auschwitz concentration camp (about an hour drive outside Krakow). It was a truly sobering experience.
The infamous entrance to the Auschwitz concentration camps states "Arbeit macht frei" or "Work will make you free."
We also made it to the Schindler's Factory museum. It was a really neat, interactive museum that detailed the history of Krakow, the prelude to WWII and the occupation by the Nazis.
Krakow is a beautiful city. There are over fifty cathedrals spread throughout the city.
This spot was used to film a scene from the movie "Schindler's List."
The tattered building on the left is the remnants of the Jewish Ghetto dating back to WWII.
Mike and I ate at the oldest restaurant in Krakow. It has been open since 1364.

Our little munchkin turned 2 this week. I can't believe I have a two year old. She is such a fun little girl we are pretty much obsessed with her. (If you can't tell by our blog) We had a week full of parties! She loved every minute of it!
Mike's family came down from College Station for her party yesterday. They are the best!
Of course Kate found the dog at the park and made herself a new friend. She loves dogs!
How many guys does it take to light 2 candles on a cake in the wind???
I was quite proud of my cake!
Opening presents on her birthday!
Birthday party up in Utah!
Can't wait till next year!
