Lake Bled

 Two weeks ago, we took a trip to beautiful Slovenia. Lake Bled is just a 5 hour drive from home, so it made for a perfect weekend getaway. It was a lovely, relaxing, nature-y weekend.
 We splurged on a horse drawn carriage ride around the lake - so fun!

One of the popular things to do at Lake Bled is to ride in a row boat out to the island in the lake. Typically, this is a large boat that holds 30 or so people. We decided on the personal row boat approach and we had an excellent rower. We were assured by the boat rental lady that there was no need for the kids to have life jackets. I wasn't so sure about this, so I just prayed we wouldn't fall in! 

After docking at the island, we climbed 100 steps to the top and visited the small church. We all took a turn ringing the bell, but sadly our pics didn't turn out.
We capped off the day with a visit to a bakery for some of the Bled area's kremna rezina. 
It was yummy and a perfect end to a memorable day!
