Salzburg, Austria

Over our rainy May vacation we discovered these hills in Salzburg, Austria really are alive! It has been nearly two months since we have been back and our kids are still singing like they are on the Sound of Music tour bus. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to see some of our favorite scenes from the movie. Click here to see where we stayed.


These lovely Austrian outfits is what I really wanted to pack in my suitcase and pictured our family wearing.


Not really, but it would have been fun and even more magical!

“There’s a sad sort of clanging
From the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple, too
And up in the nursery
An absurd little bird
Is popping out to say coo-coo
(coo-coo, coo-coo)
Regretfully they tell us
But firmly they compel us
to say goodnight
To you!”

So…we are not in the Captain’s House, but I was dying to try this pose with the family! They were not nearly as excited as I was.
