Our next big outing with Nathan's parents was to the castle in Heidelberg. We had done the Christmas Market there, but I really wanted to go visit the beautiful castle up on the mountain. It overlooked the whole city along the river and was such a fantastic view! We even survived a TOUR with our kids! The tour guide was a super nice French man. He was so great with the kids. He paid special attention to them and tried to include them in things. I was so grateful. The tour started off in a very 'echoey' room and I thought there was no way we would survive the entire experience. But in the end, the tour guide even told Nathan that our kids were high-energy but very respectful. I almost didn't believe my ears when I heard it! ;) It was a fun day and we even saw the sun off and on!
I was so happy when I discovered these cute selfies of Nathan & Violet on the camera card...love them
I also have to add that I am so proud of my kids for being happy to eat a hearty German roll every now and then. We pack sandwiches for our day trips and they are totally happy with them! Wouldn't have imagined they would do that a year ago!
And here he had Sawyer and Violet walk down the hall in true Prince & Princess fashion
Sometime later that week we drove up to a castle Ruin in Landstuhl (only about 20 min away). It was closed but the kids had fun romping around in the rain for a bit
