Puente

This past weekend was a "Puente" the Spanish word for "bridge" which they use for a long weekend. Friday (which was Spanish Labor Day) we went to Casa de Campo for a long bike ride-- from Pozuelo almost to the palace in Madrid. Going down was a lot of fun but the return trip had some big hills!

Saturday we got up early and went on a road trip with the Watts--a family from our church who we are in small group with and whose oldest daughter is a part of Wyldlife at the American School.
Our trip started in Segobriga--a Roman city that dates back to 500 BC. It was amazing that they let people climb all over the ruins--very unamerican!



Check out my new top teeth Pops!

Ciudad Encantada--Stop number two:
(Kind of like Rock City--neat rock formations on top of a mountain...)





We ended our day in a town called Cuenca which was an awesome 15th century town literally hanging on the side of a mountain! We walked the steep streets, ate tapas for dinner and actually saw Mae Mae's teacher there which was bizarre!

Sunday was Mothers Day in Spain, so we celebrated with a breakfast and the kids Spanish gifts they made in school. What a great weekend as a family! Gracias a Dios!

Climbing on those ruins might have been most unamerican, but you, Chase, were looking most american! :-)

We love the pictures--they make us homesick for the Czech Republic.

Marylen misses Liza, and we miss all of you.
