Since the last time we rented an RV went so swimmingly (HA!) we decided to do it again. This time with my mom and sister tagging along. We picked them up from the airport and didn't even go home before we set out on our adventure through parts of germany, austria, and the czech republic. That big bad RV is the loveliest backdrop in the first picture.
Our first stop was Garmisch, Germany where we went on the coolest hike I've ever been on. Hike is a but of a stretch because it was more like a stroll. But an extremely beautiful stroll.
Jane was a little more than enthused to have her nana and aunt Rachel with us :)
The beginning of our hike started in this olympic ski jump arena.
with 4 iPhone cameras, my good camera, and Jeff's GoPro, I think it is safe to say that we had all bases covered when it comes to the documentation of the trip. (over-documentation is a thing)
Stacks of freshly cut wood are germans' forte.
But really, when the scenery is like this, over-documentation is not much of a crime.
Would recommend a rain jacket. As opposed to my t-shirt and that's it. (my kids were bundled, but my arms were very much goose-bumped.)
At times the water was calm, and other times it was raging and roaring so loud that we couldn't hear each other talk.
Being sprayed by waterfalls is my very favorite way to get wet.
This branch (scene below and above) was one of my favorite parts of this hike. Look at that strong fella, holding its own against the strong current. I hope I can anchor myself down into what I believe and stay true and firm and strong despite any life currents that are thrown my way. And remember that I can do hard things. Even really hard things. Thanks branch, for the inspiring life lesson.
Stay strong, little guy.
Jeff is a total sucker for these coin machines.
After eating a quick lunch in the RV, we stopped at a place for gas where jeff did push ups and I did jump squats. Jane attempted to do both also, but when she got tired she settled for sitting on his back while he did push-ups.
On our way this enormous spider web caught our eye.
If we weren't wearing sweat pants and looking slightly homeless, this would be a framer!
Cute red garage door!
DAISIES!!!!! :) :)
