Today was Jacob's last day at kindergarten before the long weekend, he has Good Friday and Easter Monday off. They have been busy this week, making lots of Easter themed items. He brought home 2 of his decorated eggs, we were so excited they made it home. The first one is mounted on a stick, and the other hangs from a string. (In the picture above you can see the eggs in with the pussy willows) Then he also made this large "egg", which the teachers filled with grass and candies. They had an Easter Party one day, and made a little "Easter candle" that he brought home. Lots of fun for him this week!
The weather has been really nice, Kenny has been cooking on the grill quite often. We went to the Easter Market in Nürnberg last Sunday.
It was a little cool, but still nice. There were various booths with everything and anything, like Easter decorations, cleaning supplies, curtains, dishware, small tools, and of course food. It was set up in the market square, in the right side of the photo you can see the Schöner Brunnen (Beautiful Fountain). It was a little smaller than I expected, but still pleasant. We also hung out at Starbucks for a while, and Jacob enjoyed a chocolate chip cookie. It was a nice way to get out and do something a little different on a Sunday.
We are already making our list of weekend trips we want to make this summer, trying to get to some places we haven't been before. These include Dresden, Battlefields at Verdun, and Hamburg. We already have a trip planned in late May to Holland, we are going to stay at a
Center Parcs "bungalow village". Just a nice relaxing long weekend to look forward to! So, hopefully the blog will be a little more exciting this summer, it's been a long winter :)
