We celebrated two fun birthdays at the end of August. Happy birthday Kate and Jen!!
|Such a big girl!|
|Birthday girls on their big day|
|Translation: Royal Jester|
|Panning for gold (earlier in the day before it got crazy crowded!)|
And if you ever wanted to milk a pretend cow, Playmobile FunPark is the place for you. :)
They got to make their own playmobile people and were very happy with them. They both made witches...great.
Jen enjoying one of her new favorites...Eis Kaffee. (Literally, coffee over ice cream. It's wonderful with all the whipped cream they put in it, too!) Happy birthday to me.
After two days at Playmobile, we drove about 30 min closer to home and stayed at Rothenburg ob der Tauber. This is an amazing town that still has its medieval wall intact, completely surrounding the town. If you want to know what medieval Germany looked like, visit this incredible and amazing town. CLick on the pictures to see them closer--can you tell the biggest industry in R o d T is tourism?
Part of the wall--you can walk on the wall around the whole city.
The church has this amazing woodcarving, completed in 1505. Many agree it's the best example of medieval woodcarving in the whole of Germany. The detail is incredible!

(Which they still do!)
Here's a shot from farther away. The thing is huge.
|Incredible architecture all over town|
|Some of the cutest tourists in town!|
