Wordless Wednesday: More Pictures Of Our Germany Trip

German cookie filled with almond pasteMy alarm clock is no match for my need for sleep.

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.

103aThere is nothing better than a German bakery full of freshly baked bread and cakes. It’s one of the things I miss not having in America.


112aI mean, how can you possibly make a choice?

111aI decided to go for the huge shortbread cookie with almond paste on the inside, and L had a Berliner, which is similar to a sugar-covered donut, but much lighter.

This bakery has a room upstairs, and we enjoyed the AC up there. We had that crazy heatwave, remember?


105aI had never seen such a nifty spoon before, have you? Someone had a good idea there.

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.

125aL fed the chickens…

155a…hugged a horse…

138a…and Jens took him for a spin on the big quad.

128aHe biked to their “Biogas Anlage” (bio fuel) with the boys to see Jens work there.

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.

009aHere are the three boys.

And here is L showing off what he built with LEGOs before we had to leave the next day. Thanks for hosting us again and all the fun and yummy food, guys!

Which cake would you have had? Go.
