This past weekend both Mr. and Bug had a couple extra days off for Memorial Day. We have been so busy lately that it was so nice to have some down time as a family! We also had a few really fun adventures, too. Last year we were introduced to Lochmuhle by some friends of ours and we absolutely fell in love! It is basically a cross between an amusement park, a petting zoo, and a super fun park. As our last year here has been winding down Lochmuhle was definitely high on the list of ‘must do’ before we leave. Originally our plan was to go the day after Lily gets out of school. However, that plan was recently changed because (drum roll please!!) the girls and I are heading back to the states after all for my brother’s wedding and we’ll now be out of town that day. SO, since we had a week day off and knew Lochmuhle wouldn’t be too busy we decided to head back that way again. Some other friends of ours also were able to come along and we had so much fun!! The girls were all asleep in the car within the first five minutes! They played hard and had a blast all day long!
Lochmuhle is a mix of actual rides and then self or parent powered rides! It is really a unique experience!
It was a pretty tame swing ride. You can see a quick video of the Littles riding it HERE. I love their little kicking feet!
I think one of the favorite rides of all the kids was this particular ride that was dubbed the banana ride.
We also had a lot of fun jumping on trampolines and a big bouncy blog! Completely forgot to snap pictures of video of that!
Another fun ‘ride’ was this parent powered ferris wheel… only in Germany! You can view that video HERE. As the parent you had to pedal really hard and fast to get the ferris wheel to barely move. It was quite the experience!
Another huge favorite of the day was an upside down ride that Mr. dubbed the astronaut training ride! Yes, you read that right. Upside down. Our girls loved it! They all rode it twice and were begging to ride again and again! I think we have some little dare-devils on our hands!
