This past weekend we ventured out to see some of the surrounding area.  We started the morning off at a little farm where we found some fresh milk, cheeses & other delectable items!  I did not remember to bring my camera, so we will do better next time.  Some new friends took us, so that made it a little extra special!

After the farm, in a spur-of-the-moment decision, we headed to do a drive-by tour of Wittlich & then on to Trier.  Trier is the oldest German city...I told the girls we knocked out a big visit on our first official weekend.  Of course it was rainy & cold (and not much of a tour since we didn't know a thing about it!), but we persevered to find some warm, fresh pretzels & currywurst.  Yum.  What's not to love?  Today, I booked a train trip for the girls & I to go on next week (so sorry Daddy!), so I will educate myself before anyone comes for a visit!  :)

A little dreary, but we had umbrellas!

Picture of what Mommy calls the Happy Potato Restaurant...
the Kales took Mommy & Daddy here when we came back in April!
I think our potato loving Grandma Lene will find it satisfactory!
(p.s. Grandma, apparently you come by loving potatoes through your German heritage.  They are into every form you can imagine!)

The umbrellas are out...

A little pretzel loving...

This is where we got our bratwurst & currywurst.
Take me away currywurst.
Okay, I'm getting hungry now!
There was also a band playing, so we sat in the drizzly rain to listen & eat our meat.

See, I leave the USA & I blog.  Crazy stuff!  Hope you enjoy & I can't wait to see where our next adventure takes us!
