Friday Field Trip and German Lesson!

Friday Field Trip!

Actually it was a Thursday field trip, but that's because we had a dentist appointment today! (No cavities)  So yesterday after we visited Steve (daddy and husband) at the hospital where he is recovering from back surgery, we went to a fun German store I had heard about- Gourmet Haus Staudt.  I was expecting a small store with a tiny café, but this place was awesome!

  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....
