In touch with Jakub's family at the cottage.

Mushroom picking - Hřib Pravý, Boletus edulis (highly prized mushroom in Czech Rep.).

When Jakub arrived in the Czech Republic, we headed over to Orlické Hory (northern Czech Rep.) which is where his grandmother has a cottage.  She normally stays there for the summers and it's a wonderful isolated location near a ski resort (hills rather than mountains).  It's a very nice place to relax, in the midst of forests and fields.  Jakub's mom and dad were also there to help out, as well as our niece and nephew, Eliška and Vítek, so the kids had companions - they actually played amazingly well together.  The following photos were taken at the cottage.
