24 Nov -- Salzburg, Austria (City Day 4)

On our third day, we went to the Residenz Palace, St Peter's Cathedral and Catacombs, and Hellbrunn Park.

 The kids did great at the Salzburg Residenz Palace.  Each room had a number to punch into a listening device, and Charlie enjoyed searching for the numbers.

 In each new room, Jane and I would search for a chair to sit in.

 Henry would walk around with Anna.

 This is Jane searching for a 'pirate ship' in one of the paintings.

Jane had been doing sooooo well until she walked under one of the red ropes, so I picked her up and she burst into tears.

 Salzburg is not so stroller friendly.

Quite impressive!

 The catacombs were really cool, as well.  You can see them built into the rock wall.

 There were a ton of stairs inside.

 Again you can see the catacombs half way up the tall green tree in the picture above.

 Good thing we left our segways at home.

 It had a really nice playground that Charlie could not wait to go to.  But he fell asleep before we got there...

 ...and when he woke up, he was pleased to see where we were.

 After riding on the zipline, he saw the gazebo where Liesl danced and sang "16 Going on 17."

 Charlie agreed to go on the zipline for a bit before going over to see the gazebo.

 Skype'ing with Oma.

All together now!
