I set it last night in case I’d fall asleep with Landon when I got him to bed. The plan was to get up and write my Wordless Wednesday post.
Well, I woke up this morning instead, so you’re getting the post a bit later than usual :)
These are pictures of our second trip to my friend Karen’s farm in Germany.
Many of you have expressed that you enjoy seeing pictures of our tip, so here are some more.
Our Germany Trip
After visiting Karen, her husband Jens, my godson Thore, and their younger son Thilo for one night, and the three boys having so much fun together, we squeezed in another trip to the farm.
We took the train again, and Karen picked us up with Thilo. This is the “commuter parking lot”: many people use their bikes to get to the train station.
Instead of driving to the farm right away, we stopped in Karen’s little town to have a coffee and treat at this quaint bakery.
This bakery has a room upstairs, and we enjoyed the AC up there. We had that crazy heatwave, remember?
Right next to the bakery is this toy store full of Playmobil toys, but since it was Sunday, it wasn’t open.
Not many stores are open in Germany on Sundays. When I was growing up in Germany, literally nothing was open on Sundays, and during the week stores would close at 6 pm. Nowadays, a few large supermarkets are open on Sundays.
L’s disappointment was dwarfed once we got to the farm, where Thilo and he played with the many LEGOs the boys have.
It’s a windmill that creates heat from waste for many of the houses in the neighborhood, for way less than what gas or oil would cost. It’s a win/win for the area, and the environment.
Karen is a great homemaker and makes a lot of her own jams and preserves, etc.
For dinner, we all went out. I had another Radler, and enjoyed this yummy pasta.
Which cake would you have had? Go.
