We also went with a co-worker of Troy's and his family. Their kids are pretty close in age to ours, so it was great to go with another family with kids! The amazing thing is that their kids only speak Dutch and Czech, so Ryan and their son, Ondrej, only have a few similar words, but figured out other ways to communicate and had the best time together. It was really neat to see how they were able to communicate when they didn't understand the language each other spoke. Their parents had to do some translating between the 2 boys and us. I am amazed daily at the multiple languages many of the kids here know.
Here are a few pics of our trip:
One of the many beautiful chocolate shops
Ryan's friend Ondrej inside the Church of Our Lady
Small house with big houses built around it
Brugge also has lots of Belgian Waffle shops. We ate lots of these thru the weekend too. :)
