Jacob and I went to the Schwimmbad in Lichtenau yesterday, it was a great way to enjoy the heat. It was really crowded there, but it is big enough that it's not a problem. The picture is of the large pool, that is about a 1/4 of it. And you can see the slide in the right corner, you climb to the top of the hill to go down it. It actually goes underground and through the hill. There is also a kiddie pool that is quite large, we hung out over there. I put more pictures of Jacob swimming on the photo site if you want to check it out. There are a lot of grassy areas where everyone just spreads out towels and blankets and hangs out. Very nice, and bigger than I expected. It's all outdoors so you can only go when it's warm enough, unlike some of the other indoor pools in the area. For as long as summer is here we plan to go more often, it's only about 10 minutes from the house. We are still having really warm temps, but it is a nice change. Then storms every evening, just like Florida. This weekend we are going somewhere, we are still trying to figure out where. Maybe back down to the Alps, or the Schwarzwald (Black Forest), or somewhere else. We'll let you know when we get back.
