Just got back from Germany!

We recently returned from a wonderful trip to Germany to see my grandson for his first birthday. This is a photo I took on Monday of my son, his wife, and my one and only beautiful, amazing grandson! This photo was taken just a few blocks away from their apartment.
Such an amazing little town they live in just outside of Frankfurt. They have buildings that were built in the 1500's, and a Roman ruin (wall) that runs along a bike path!

If you are a friend or client you already know this because I talk about them constantly, but My son and his wife moved to Germany about 2 years ago for his job, lucky for him my daughter-in-law speaks fluent German! I miss them all terribly, but am so happy to have been able to spend some time with them.

Some more photos from our little photo session that we did:
I know I'm bias, but Isn't he adorable?



Here are some photos that I took when we were out sight seeing:
One of the streets in the town of Maintal, a residential area.

The Heidelberg Castle "Heidelberger Schloss", which was being renovated.

Germany was so beautiful, and the food...mmm! I am grateful to my son for introducing me to such a wonderful place. If it wasn't for him, I probably would have never bothered to see Europe. We had a connecting flight there and back in Iceland...now my interest has been sparked again! Also-maybe next time we'll have more time and we can visit France and Italy too! :)

Ha! I think I need to win the lottery!!!
