What we do on beautiful 65 degree Sunday afternoons...

We go to Weltenburg! Weltenburg is an old monastery located on a river's edge. We've been there a few times (I blogged about it last February - click here to revisit) and today, since Brian just finished a month long rotation, and I just finished a month of single parenting, we wanted to get out of the house and have a lazy day of enjoying the sunshine on this early fall day. We headed to Weltenburg to take pictures and throw rocks in the water (woohoo!) and when we arrived, we realized the hundreds of other people had the same idea. We also discovered that in the courtyard of the monastery, they serve lunch and dinner so after we walked around a bit, we sat at a fest table with some of our closest German friends (I kid, I kid, we had no idea who they were) and enjoyed some delicious food. And on the way home, 3 out of 4 of us enjoyed a leisurely nap. Here are all the pictures - notice how difficult it is to get a decent picture of Luke - he was trying to enjoy the water, watch the boats and throw rocks and I kept bugging him. :) And Hannah scratched the heck out of her little cheek this morning playing with a toy - we have no idea what toy caused the damage but geez! nice baby toy, huh? Hope you all are enjoying YOUR Sunday.

A little old man with a HUGE paddle pushes this barge back and forth across the river.  There are people just chilling in the car as they get transported across.  Call me crazy but I just don't like the look of that!  lol

Perfect rocks for skipping!

Beautiful, no? We couldn't have asked for a better day.

See the huge riverboat behind them?  Very cool.

Awwwww....who's her daddy???  Little twins, even the expressions on their faces, just watching the water.  :)  (Click the picture to enlarge)

The courtyard!  Fun!

They entertain each other quite well.  lol
