On Saturday Bug and I had such a fun opportunity! The two of us got to meet up with some other ladies from church to go on a Mother-Daughter trip! While I technically could have brought along all the girls, I thought that some special one on one time with Bug would be just what we needed!
So we met up with a group of 7 other ladies/daughters (and one sweet baby boy!) and headed to a city called Rüdesheim, Germany. It is along the Rhein River (one of my favorite places in the world!) and it is just across the Rhein from Bingen which we’ve visited before on our way to see castles! I’d never visited this side of the Rhein, before, so I was really excited about the change in perspective. Plus it is always fun to scope out close, fun little day trips from when our families visit this summer!
After doing some window shopping we picked a fun little place to eat lunch together. We even got to sit outside on a balcony which was simply lovely. 🙂 After filling our bellies with lots of yummy German food we decided to ride the Gondola! It heads up to the Niederwald Monument up on the hill! Not to mention the beautiful views along the way! The Gondola ride was definitely Bug’s favorite part of the day! Well, that or the ice cream we had later in the day! 🙂
All in all, it was such a fun day in Rüdesheim! And it was made even more fun with our great company! I am so glad that Bug and I got to get away for a day! If you’d like to see more pictures from our time in Rüdesheim you can view the entire album on our photo share site HERE.
Until next time, keep our sweet Baby girl in your prayers. She had an odd rash when I got home, but we really didn’t think too much of it. It started popping up in other areas, though, and after so investigation and input from some of our great medical professional friends we are fairly certain that she has chicken pox! Poor baby! So far she is doing pretty well and doesn’t seem too bothered by them. She obviously doesn’t feel well and isn’t sleeping well. It seems to be a pretty mild case, though, and we’re hoping that it clears up quickly and no one else gets sick so we can keep with our plans to visit Paris next weekend!
