From the train station we headed to Lake Bled to enjoy the beautiful Julian Alps, jumping off ledges, tubing down ramps and whizzing down the mountain on the alpine slide. I didn't really care what we were doing as long as we were together.
|It started pouring rain and we saw this tent set up where you could|
shoot a bow and arrow into targets from under the tent! It was actually
a lot of fun. We have some potentials for Robin Hoods merry men!
|Mitch taking his arrow shooting very seriously!|
|This was taken at the castle at Lake Bled.|
|This frame is set up on the top of the mountain where|
so you can take a picture while waiting in line for the
alpine slide. We've got some pretty good female
jumpers in this family! The view was spectacular!
|They actually paid to jump off that platform...?|
|This is one of the best alpine slides I've ever been on!|
|Looks like they are being robbed at gunpoint, if they weren't all smiling!|
Not sure if this was at the beginning or the end but they look excited.
|I might have been able to do this, might being the key word.|
|Hold on, let me take your picture before you drop 30 feet!|
|Look how little those people below are... |
I think this was a pretty long rappel down!
|Lunch with the elders at Dveri, one of our favorite places!|
|It's a pizza party with all of our favorite Bosnians |
and few sister missionaries!
|How lucky are we to have so many friends here that they didn't|
all fit in one picture?
|It's ice cream season in Sarajevo! Pretty sure this wasn't the|
only one Amy had that day. A cone full of delicious ice cream is
only about .50 cents here. Hard to eat just one....
|Following the pizza party everyone headed to the indoor|
Grand Prix go carts. We had some insane drivers among the group!
|Standing on the edge of a burned out hotel overlooking Sarajevo.|
|Yes, those are my children on top of the hotel!|
|Doesn't this look like a movie poster? Taken at the bobsled |
run from the 1984 Olympics.
A bit different from the one in Salt Lake City.
|We drove ATVs up to Lukomir, a remote village on the |
highest point of the mountains surrounding Sarajevo.
|This is what it looks like in Lukomir. About 80 people live|
there from spring to early fall but no one stays for the winter!
|On top of the world... almost! |
The view was unbelievable.
After our time in Sarajevo, we headed to the coast. We made a quick stop in Mostar on our way to Dubrovnik. In Dubrovnik we rented a boat and visited several of the islands just off the coast of Dubronik. It was a nice relaxing day full of sunshine and blue skies!
|Our sweet ride for the day!|
|The kids enjoyed a good game of water volleyball while some|
of us relaxed on the beach and enjoyed the sunshine.
|The boat was nice and cozy, but it was a fun way to see the islands.|
|This is the "blue hole." They swam into the cave and apparently|
it glows blue inside from the reflection.
|Relaxing after his swim to the "blue hole".|
|We still do not know how to take a good selfie!|
|Walking the City Wall around Old Town Dubrovnik.|
And just like that... the week was gone and they were all headed home. Hard to believe they have already come and gone! Hopefully we will be able to get more of our family here to visit, but in the meantime, we are now back to work and planning our next projects. So thankful for the many small blessings we receive each and every day.
