Some pics from our holiday...

We stayed at my aunts home....isn't it gorgeous!!!


This is how close she is to the beach people...I just stepped out on to the road!!


Vrsi-Mulo

Mia doing a little fishing....




We spent one whole day hanging out in Nin (where my mama is from)...I LOVE this place most in the whole world! Here's Jakov on the beach....where's his feet!???!




When you come to Nin you MUST rub Grgur Ninski's toe!!! It's good luck people!


Marko and Jakov making all kinds of wishes while rubbing 'the' toe!! I hope they come true for them! :)



We then made our way to my cousin's restaurant Konoba Branimir....it is just BEAUTIFUL!!! and the food was YUM YUM YUM!!! (all those stones you see along the ground are ruins...)






AND this restaurant is right across this BEAUTIFUL church.....

sv. Kriz (Holy Cross church) is known as the smallest kathedral in the world dated from the 9th century....did I mention I LOVE this church (and that my husband and I married in a church opposit of this church!!!)

Inside this GORGEOUS church...

My kids wanted to take a picture next to Sponge Bob's house! LOL (I believe this building is the elementary school my mom went to....my kids so love learning all this about their Baba (grandma).


Condura Croatica
"In 1966, at the entrance into the port of Nin, remains of boats were found by chance. They were taken out of the sea in 1974 and transferred to Zadar.
These boats sailed in the 11th cent, beginning of the 12thcent. It is supposed that they correspond to the konduras mentioned by Emperor Konstantin Porphyrogenitos in the 10th century when he spoke of the Old Croatian navy."
 
 
On our way back home...snif, snif..we stopped here to see this treasure!!


Another BREATH TAKING church...win TONS of history!!





We had a wonderful time!! Too short but never the less...quality family goodness!
I highly recommend Croatia as a holiday destination. :)

Off to put a heat pad on my neck!
