Visited Strasbourg, France -- a beautiful town near the German border:
The grownups enjoyed walking around, looking at all the beautiful old half-timbered houses, and the kids loved blowing off some steam at a nearby playground:
Plus, there were storks, LOTS and LOTS of storks. We knew the town was famous for this because they had things like this all over:
But we had no idea the incredible number of storks in the city. They were EVERYWHERE!
In the park:
On the treetops:
They were literally everywhere. We loved it!
We've also gone to a few medieval festivals, a big hit with the kids:
The kids got to play at being princesses:
And knights in chain mail:
To participate in medieval magic shows:
And admire lovely castles:
More to come!
