Our Retreat in Willingen, Germany


This last weekend, the kids and I took a trip. The army was sponsoring a free retreat for women/men who have deployed spouses. Kids were welcome and free babysitting was provided during the classes. We had lots of free time too. On our time off from classes, the kids and I walked down to the center of town and found a fun park for Eva. The bridge was a great view on this very very steep hilly walk. I won't be doing that again with a double stoller!

When I saw this, I imidiately thought of you dad. This pigeon loft was across the street from the park. The pigeons were flying around the entire time we were down there and right when we left, they all landed on the roof of the loft. Eva really loved to watch them fly in circles. She kept saying "bird, bird, bird" over and over until it became extremely annoying.

It was a little chilly that day. I feel bad for Gabe. He gets the short end of the stick. He just has to watch while Eva gets to be mobile and run around like crazy. I think he has thoughts of jumping out of his carseat and going and tackling her to the ground. I actually can't wait for that day. :)

How fun! I think Gabe looks less like Eva in that picture than in others. I'm sure Eva and Gabe will both love it when they can play with eachother!

Gorgeous photos - I love the bridge photo and, of course, I love the ones of the kids. Gabe is changing more and more.
