Aaargh! Lovin' it!!
Meat, cheese, and fruit!
Hotel and Restaurant Lucas -- in the pedestrian zone around the corner from the Square!
Israel with two of her big brothers...
After breakfast we went on the Rick Steve's Guidebook Tour through the Square and up to the castle.
My boys are forever wrestling, provoking, teasing!
(I just happened to catch them in a photo this time.)
Thank you for the book, Dan & Jo! It's getting used!!
We know that there is much to see and do in Nurnberg... that it's the place where Hitler held his rallies, it's where the Nurnberg War Trials took place, and more. But, honestly, we were all done with World War II history and we didn't want to hear anymore about Hitler or the Nazis. We really felt finished with the whole ordeal and meant to be purposeful about taking a break from it all!
Next stop, Playmobil FunPark!
Ezekiel. Even the "statues" move!
First stop, a slide that went down a mountainside...
There was two ways to climb back up to the slide: the way I climbed up by the stairs or the way the children and LeRoy climbed up by the rope bridge, rolling logs, etc.
This was our favorite "ride." We spent most of our time playing on these rafts near the ship.
I kept waiting for someone to fall in the water... and was surprised when no one did!
Eli and Zeke in the crow's nest.
Eli, LeRoy, and Israel in the hold.
My four children on the rafts...
Jungle Princess... with an attitude.
We really need one of these walls in our living or family room!
House of Mirrors.
Noah Whitworth... you were thought of! (Actually, we thought of all of you!)
Well, the children... and one big kid... requested more time!
The FunPark was GREAT!! We all loved it. It was such a perfect way to finish this particular road trip. We settled into the van, turned on the book on tape, and began the three and a half hour journey west toward home.
Another great trip! More amazing memories! Excellent bonding with these cool people I live with!!
THANK YOU, GOD!!!
