Around town in Lodz, Poland

We love exploring new places and our family is great about taking us around. This trip we went to Piotrkowska Street, one of the longest commercial street in Europe.

Taking a tram. We love public transportation!

Did I mention how much the kids love music?

This adorable bear statue was just the tip of the iceberg. We now have a children's story book, in Polish of course, all about this guy.

Another fun statue and kids that love to climb.

Lodz, Poland playgrounds

Trips with kids are much different once you have kids. I can now give tours of the best playgrounds within walking distance of every place we visit.

Both kids are climbing the net to get up on the playground. There are no stairs up like the playgrounds at home.

This is a typical neighborhood playground and they are all over. My kids love the merry-go-rounds which we don't have near us at home.

Sweet Daughter convinced N to try the seesaw.

Yes, this is a different playground. At home we have animals that bob back and forth. Here they had a 2 person motorcycle. Our kids were all over that. Literally.

Piano when traveling

For kids that love music the idea of two weeks with no piano practice was troubling. They were thrilled to find a keyboard they could practice on in Lodz.

Sweet Son playing every song he has memorized.

Sweet Daughter trying to play songs she doesn't remember.

They both loved getting to play for family and it was a special treat for family members who live on another continent to get to hear a short recital by our kids.
