Tying Up Loose Ends

Well, it's been a couple of weeks now, and we're still not finished with Germany.  I'll try to wrap it up for you all today.

We found a Putt-Putt place in one of the towns, and the kids were excited to play.  Language barriers were a little tough, but they got their clubs and began playing.  The first thing they learned was that the clubs have these cool little suction cups on the end to pick up and hold the balls.  Check it out!

This turned out to be a pretty necessary tool, because we were quickly informed that we were not to walk on the "green" (which as you can see was white).  So you putted from the side

And then reached in for your ball.

On another note, it's very hard for the 2nd grader deep inside all of us to not be constantly tickled in Germany
As Larry the Cable Guy says, "I don't care who you are, that was funny."
We've already told you a little about the crazy hike we took at Partnach Gorge.  Since we're on the subject of signs, let me share a sign we encountered on the hike. 

At the time we weren't exactly sure what it was telling us, but 'verboten' was enough for us to know better.  You just know people see that field and want to run through it singing or calling "Ricolaaaaaaaaaa"

And a couple of quintessentially German sites from our van

There's much we have skipped over, but it's probably time to move on.  We enjoyed a great week in Germany!
