A Night at the Rynek

Last night (after Mom and Dad had taken some time to rest and recuperate from the loooong flight) we took them out for a night at the Rynek.  The Rynek is the Market Square in the center of Krakow, and it's an amazing area of history, architecture, restaurants and shopping.  The weather was perfect, and Mom and Dad were surprisingly energetic for their first day here.  I told them I was impressed....I usually don't have the energy to go anywhere after  a day of international travel.  Here's a few pictures from our night...

Mom and Dad standing in front of Wawel Castle.  We plan on exploring the castle this weekend, so there will be lots more pictures of this to come.

This is All Saints Church.  I tried to get the entire height of the church and Mom and Dad, which makes them look like tiny specks on the stairs.

In the center of the square stands the Cloth Hall.   

Caleb was a real sweetie, and bought Grammy a flower.  

I told Andrew he had to hold someone's hand, and he only wanted to hold Papa's hand.
We took them out to Babcia Maliny's, which is a Polish restaurant.  We figured they needed to try Polish food their first night here.

We like this restaurant because it has so much charm.  It's located underneath a university, and looks like an old cabin.  The aquarium in the middle keeps the kids busy while we wait on our food.

Isaac and Caleb have been asking to ride in a horse-drawn carriage since we moved here, and we finally did it last night.  We did this after we got ice cream ("lody" in Polish) as you can see in the picture.  It was the perfect ending to our night.

Everyone slept really well last night, especially Mom and Dad!  Now this morning it's off to the Wielicza Salt Mine.... more picture to come later!
