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!
Amsterdam Train Station
Boys first real train ride – we took it from Amsterdam to Germany which was about 3 hours away., They LOVED IT.
Adding to our slowly growing collection of Starbucks mugs from around the world.We stayed in our very first hostel as a family – with Grandma Anisa! It was so beautiful and nothing like I’d expected! Boys loved the bunk beds.
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
Chaseyboy wanted a picture by the “flying lion water fountain” :) Love him,
“Love Locks” bridge in Cologne. AMAZING.
We spent a while looking at lockets and reading inscriptions of couples from years ago to currently. Even the boys enjoyed these locks!Thousands!Teal and pink lock but of course (you know me – my fav colour combo)
“tuckered out” this kid can sleep anywhere!
Grandma Anisa bought baby girl E.S. her first toy. Handmade from Germany and with PINK but of course :)Probably my favorite place in all of Germany :) A bakery. YUM.

It was truly a blessing to have a weekend away – (and paid for) – with Grandma Anisa. It was a great time to explore a new city and have time as a family!
