Friday Field Trip!
They had German snack food and mixes, knick-knacks and gifts, cuckoo clocks, more types of beer than I could count, fresh pretzels, sausages and even some cool hats. It was a really fun little shop. I wish we hadn't had lunch at the hospital because they had a German Bier Garten (Beer Garden) in the back where they served sausages and pretzels and sandwiches. I'm still not eating carbs but the pretzels looked amazing!! I know where I'm going when I need some carbs :)
I wish I had more pictures to share but the battery died on the camera. Oops. We left with some German candies, some pretzel goldfish crackers that my son HAD to have, and a box of Spaetzle that I made for dinner. They were basically egg noodles. But "spaetzle" is more fun to say.
Speaking of "fun to say"-
Let's Learn Some German!!
German was once the unifying language of Central, Eastern and Northern Europe. It is still taught in many areas outside of Germany as a second (or third) language. German also has the most native speakers of any language in Europe. So we should learn some....
