On saturday we had a church meeting in Nurnburg in the evening. Since it's an hour away, we decided with some good friends to make a day out of it. So we drove up in the morning and headed to our favorite little theme park, Playmobile. I think every other family in the surrounding area had the same idea because we were packed like sardines in that park. Playmobile is the most innovative theme park I've ever been to. They layout is like a zoo, and instead of rides or animals to stare at there are little stations that have interactive activities and themes. A police car station, a pirate ship that you can go and play on, a farm where you can milk "cows" and clean "horses". There is something for all ages and I think it'll take about 5 visits until we have the chance to explore everything in it. So with that little ode to playmobile, here are the pictures.
THE CHEESE GRIN
Kylie really putting her all into the cleanliness of that plastic cow.
^^ little lyla feet. Her foot kept slipping out of the shoe. How cute are those jelly shoes? I'm usually a firm believer in no-shoes-until-a-baby-can-walk, but old navy sucks me in with those sales. $3 for adorable little baby shoes? "It's practically free!" as jeff would say ;)
Sweet little claire
This day was just a happy day. There were hardly any tears from Jane, a welcome change from the last trip we did. I think having her daddy home has helped her SO much. We have been in a family honeymoon stage, having him back. But actually, I don't think it's a stage as much as it is a constant and brimming love for each other. I'm continuously pleasantly surprised that I never, EVER get sick of the 3 humans who I share my home and my heart with. Every night as Jeff and I talk as we are falling asleep, one of us always ends up saying in more words or less "We have a pretty good life, don't we?" We do, we do! I'm holding fast to the gratitude and am trying to make it a goal to never let it slip from my grasp. I'm also trying to teach Jane to be "grateful for whatchya got!" (ie. instead of crying for "lotsa cookies, how about you just smile and say thanks?) Luckily for me, it comes quite effortlessly, when I am intentional about it, to be so very grateful for what I have; and it's because we are so blessed in so many ways!
