A sad day in Dinklebahl...

My favorite little place in Germany was this little city called Rothenburg Ob Der Tauber. We spent the last few days after Tyler finished work driving down into Southern Germany and the Alps. Wow the German countryside is amazing. Well our first stop was in Rothenburg o.d.t. It was a walled city, completely picturesque. In fact, we spent the night there and in the morning we went out walked around the city and Tyler (who is getting very good with our camera) took the most amazing pictures of our kids and of the city. I was so excited for them. Well, later that day we headed down the Romantic Road to Munich. First stop, Dinklebahl. An unfortunate mishap occurred in this place. We lost ALL the pictures that were currently on our camera...wipe tear. We were so sad that it literally ruined our experience in Dinklebahl. So we continued on down the Romantic Road.

The beautiful German Countryside.

We drove all the way down to the Neuschwanstein castle, aka Cinderella's castle which was awesome. It is right at the base of the Alps. It snowed on us, so we woke up that morning and first went shopping at any little place we could find to get hats, gloves, coats...we were not used to that freezing weather. Here are my favorite of the pics we took...


The most beautiful emerald river.

Ava loved eating the snow...yummy.

Love all those places. Your pictures are amazing. Looks like we are going to have stop in Prague sometime, i've heard it's awesome. I am so glad you're home safe and sound but I think that is such an incredible opportunity and adventure. Hope all is well.

P.S. hey maybe we can see eachother more since we'll be living in the same state, too bad will be so far south-we'll have to come visit.

I loved the pictures Lindsey, you and your kids look like you've stepped right out of a catalog, you all look so great!

I loved seeing pictures of Amber's girls. They remind me of Julie's.

So glad you had fun with sisters!
P.S. We haven't gone private yet, still trying to decide...I'll send you an invite when/if we do. What is Amber's email address?
