Mom’s visit!

My mom and aunt Terry came to visit for 2 weeks so that is why I am really behind in blogging! My mom left yesterday and Terry left this morning. It was so nice to have them here! They were such a huge help. While they were here, we got to go visit a few places. We went to Paris for 2 days and Heidelberg to view the city and a castle. We also went to Switzerland to a few festivals and we tried to go see the Swiss Alps but it was so foggy that we couldn’t see anything!!

Our little family at the Eiffel Tower


Our first trip was to Paris. We left at around noon and got to Paris around 5 o’clock. The first thing we did was find a place to eat. We ate at an Italian place and it was DE. LIC.IOUS! Of course we went to the Eiffel Tower after we were done eating to get a night view. We headed back to the hotel to catch some z’s after our trip to the Eiffel Tower. The next day, we went and showed my mom and aunt the Louvre to see the Mona Lisa. Then we went to the Notre Dame cathedral. We headed back to Germany at around 6pm but on our way home, my husband decided that he wanted to take an adventure and check out a little town to find something to eat for dinner. Well, that little town had a mall…if anyone knows me, my mom, and aunt, you know we like to shop! But first, we had to eat so we ate at Hippopotamus. It was a restaurant in the mall and it was pretty good. I just got a salad so it was nothing special.

The shops were closing after we got done eating so I fed Ava and we hit the road at about 9pm. We didn’t get home until after midnight.

I just love this baby girl so much!


Our trip to Switzerland was a lot of fun! It was about a 3 hour drive so it wasn’t bad at all. We went to Basil, Switzerland because they were having 6 festivals all within walking distance and we really wanted to take my mom and aunt to a festival. It’s a great place to go and try all the good food. We hit up 3 festivals the day we got there and the next day, we drove to Lucerne to view the Swiss Alps. Unfortunately, it was really foggy so we couldn’t see anything! It was such a disappointment but Bryce and I will definitely be going back there to visit again. It is such a neat city. We headed back to Germany that night since my mom was leaving the next day. I hate to say it but I didn’t take many pictures!! I only took a few in Lucerne but since it was foggy, it was hard to take pictures.

This is the best picture I could get.



It was so sad to see my mom and aunt leave. It was so fun getting to show them where we live. I’m glad they got to experience the German culture for a couple of weeks. We miss them so much already!!

You and your mom look so much alike! 2 weeks- that must have been a wonderful visit! I'm sure they were so happy to see Ava! And that's awesome y'all are able to travel with her so young!
