Robinson Spielplatz

Our friends invited us to the Robinson Spielplatz today. This was our first time at this park and wow! We were super surprised by what we found. There is so much to explore. There are really big tree forts all over the place. The park looks small when you walk in, but once you start…

Irrgarten – Labyrinth

On our last day together we took Nana and Christiana to the Labyrinth at the Schönbrunn. It is always a fun place to explore! We love the different mazes and the playground. In the maze we split up into teams. Chris and I have been there a lot of times and thought we knew the…

Virgilkapelle and City Wander

Prater

Christiana was super excited to go to Prater for the day this past Saturday. We let each kid pick five rides to go on, a huge splurge for all of them! It was fun to see what everyone chose and it made for a very full day. We started out the day by renting this…
