Haus des Meeres

The kids have been asking to go to the aquarium all week, so we headed over there today after lunch. It was a great time to go with very few people and a new exhibit that has been under construction all year is now open! The kids really enjoyed our afternoon there. The new exhibit…

ZOOM Studio – Colors Everywhere!

We went to the ZOOM Museum and checked out the new studio exhibit – Colors, Colors, Everywhere! The Studio is my favorite section in the ZOOM Museum. There is always lots of mess to be made and it is so amazing to see what the kids create. This time it was all about colors. They…

Happy Birthday Chris!

We had a wonderful evening celebrating Chris’s birthday. We had dinner at our favorite schnitzel place, Schnitzelwirt! No pictures because we were too busy scarfing down very large portions of schnitzel. Then we headed home to surprise Chris with a lovely party the kids had planned. The kids told Chris to wait in the hall…

Kunsthistorische Museum

We were out with Chris today and decided to head to the Kunsthistorische Museum. We haven’t been there in awhile and it was WAY too cold to play outside. Here is James saying, “I am cold. Take me off this bush so we can go inside!” Elora on the other hand thought it looked like…

Date at Strudl’s

There is a cafe near us that I love called Strudl’s. I go there when I go out by myself so I can relax with really yummy soup and even better dessert. I have been telling Chris how great it is and we were supposed to go there on our anniversary, but it was closed…

Fundamt

Oliver lost his scripture bag a few weeks ago. He set it down on the train and then forgot and moved seats. When her remembered, he looked around and his bag was gone. I didn’t have much hope of finding it, but I asked around a little bit and didn’t see how we would possibly…

Peaceful Sunday Snow

Over the weekend James got really sick, so Chris stayed home from church while I took the other three. We headed out pretty early in the morning and it was snowing. The city was beautifully quiet and still so early, with untouched snow everywhere and lots of big snowflakes falling on us. When we saw…

Succession

We have the Niederösterreich Card which gives you free entrance to a lot of museums and activities around Austria. On Saturday we decided to go somewhere we have never visited before, so we headed over to Succession. It was a nice walk through the Naschmarkt to get there on the coldest day in Vienna I…

ZOOM Ocean

It has gotten really hard to get reservations at the ZOOM museum, especially since I have four kids of varying ages. The different sections of the museum are recommended for different age ranges, and only one of the sections is a range that would include all of my kids. I love that there are “Little/Big…

Skiing in Rauris

We went skiing right after Christmas at the resort in Rauris, just outside Salzburg. The first day we got there, it was nothing but a strip of ice and lots of green hills and mountains. Luckily after lots of prayers from James for snow, a snow storm blew in that night and left more snow…

Zoom Museum “Hear Hear Look Look” Exhibition

Today we went to the latest Exhibition at the ZOOM Kinder Museum. It is called “Hör Hör Schau Schau” which means “Hear Hear Look Look” and is all about the way ears and eyes work. The exhibitions are only for children 6 and up, so I took Elora and Oliver while the younger two were at kindergarten….
