The month spent in anticipation of the European trip in August. We still had fun in Catskills (independence weekend), on the beach (Fire Island), in the park, and attending some birthday parties. The first picture is from Hull-o Farms in Durham (Catskills), the second one from Fire Island.

That was the month I awaited for at least the previous three months. Karin's first trip abroad involved 5 countries - Ireland, Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic, and Sweden. And she did fantastic! Stanko suffered from over-stimulation at times. Unfortunately for us, that's usually a recipe for tantrum with him. I shot mostly family snaps, since the time we can spent with our dear ones back home is so rare. The first picture is the beautiful landscape of Wicklow Mountains in south-eastern Ireland. The latter two are both from Prague. The first one in "I need coffee!" hipsta coffee place near Náplavka. And because I like myself on that one. The second one is from the zoo - because it's a great picture of my monkey.

For the last two years, I made a visit to New England at the time of peak foliage, which made these trips a sort of tradition. It's beautiful, fairly affordable, and I need a few day long break from the city at least once every season. Petr and Marjánka, our friends from college, have moved to Maine this spring for Petr's research in genetics. Hence we could combine two great things into one, and visit them and Acadia National Park at the same time.
Government shutdown and the resulting closing of national parks made us a little worried for a while but for no reason, really. People didn't seem to notice. On the first picture, there's Petr's 6-year old daughter Svatava and Stanko. She was interested in him so much that her younger brother (coincidentally, also Standa) has become jealous. On the second one, there's Acadian foliage cliche and Svatava's younger brother on the bike. The third one - more of the incredible colors.
