Two summers ago we took the kids to Europe for 5 weeks and I was so blessed to take them back for the day to my old childhood home in a small town of Ulmen, Germany and walked the same old cobblestone streets I walked as a child (I often road my bike, which was NOT fun on those ancient cobblestone streets! LOL!) They were wide-eyed with that same look I had and I kept them exploring - here's a few pictures of one trip we took to Berg Eltz, a castle way, way up high on a mountain and the ONLY way to get to it is to walk. Steep uphill. For 1 hour! I thought they were going to pass out, give up, walk back down and tell me to take pictures, lol, but we made it and it was SO much fun!
|NOT a 40 minute walk! This sign Fibbed! Big time! :)|
|Let's go, Mommy! I got this!|
|Well .... mabye not! a lift, please?|
|Half way there! See the ruins?|
|Guess what kids? We're taking the path less traveled!|
There's a stream! And a log! You can do it! :)
|And so they did! They definitely take after me! :)|
|We made it! But they promised me there would be a Starbucks inside this old Castle!!|
|That's a long way back down! And that stream looks familiar! ;)|
(It was originally a moat!) And are those are real cannon balls ...
imagine having to fire one of those?!
I'm not overly excited about it -- I even bought this Riley stamp for this swap because I knew exactly the image I wanted to use! I like the dsp, though it wasn't the original dsp I used for the first set of cards .... but something about it is quite off. Maybe it's the layout ... I dunno ..... I'd love to hear your critiques if you made it this far! This is a sample card and I'm all about making things better in the creative process!
SONday hugs to you!
