Germany: a mini getaway!

When Ted’s mom was here, she wanted to take a trip to Germany, where Ted and his family lived for a few years when his dad was in the Military. We took a trip her second weekend here, it was quite a fun experience for us all!

The Cologne Cathedral. This was breathtaking. And bigger than you could imagine. Incredible. As we walked closer to the Cathedral Chase was cold and said, “Maybe ‘the church’ has a nursery inside!” Hehe
