Basically, these are holiday snaps:: Castle

((Sorry about the longer than planned interlude, its been a crazy sort of weeks, my house has been quite tidy, but my brain feels like treacle. I have been blissfully enjoying too much sugar/gluten/lack of sleep/all my ADHD triggers, now I am in the process of  cleaning them all out so I can be the best I can be the best I can be and have my focus back, not just the hyper focus/no focus... so bear with me folks!! some days it feels like two steps forward one step back, I love wheat this break up is no fun.))

Castle!!


My first castle! Lovely, magical and super exciting for all of us. We went to Burg Frankenstein, its about 45 minuets away from here in Darmstadt.  There was so much beauty in these old ruins, so you will just have to deal my inordinate amount of photos... so many!

We had lunch at the restaurant there, I was the non schnitzel order with my new point and guess method, the waitress gave me a funny look and said "its very German, cold fish with an apple cream sauce" personally it sounded odd so I had to get it!  It really was yummy, but the schnitzel was far yummier so I ended eating some of Adeline's!




The kids were antsy(they were to begin with), so we left the grown ups and I let them run off energy.

Adeline eventually couldn't wait and had to go up to see what everyone else was doing, she wore her Dragon dress that I made her with the castles on it!

 I didn't know how scared of heights I was until I was up there and started going jelly legged and grabbing at the walls, I don't mind mountains but the wall of the castle was more like a bridge... eeek!
 I did Pull myself together to take some shots of lovely views so i could enjoy them later, from the ground.

On we went into the tiny chapel, it felt like a little art museum. Why don't they make churches this pretty anymore, i'm not suggesting put tons of money into this rather than giving to the poor, or even this style of art work. But how many artists in the churches could give of their time and gifts in this way, God is quite the artist after all, he instilled the desire to create beauty in every heart!

While everyone else went to have an ice cream I went to wander on my own, soak in the place without worrying about my inquisitive children falling down a cliff or getting their head stuck somewhere.

This little guy was just so cute, he would keep landing just infront of me then just as i was about to shoot he would close up  or flutter away, eventually (as I was going to call it quits and walk away, he gave in)

Tour de Wiesbaden :: duck pond

Jakes Parents came for a visit, and for the last two weeks we have been on quite a bit of a family holiday. We romped, and rambled, and climbed mountain(long story, just don't follow jake, if directions are in German) As it is to rain all week, I think I should get to showing you some of our lovely adventures, I took quite a few photos, so be ready my friends. I find so much inspiration and beauty whenever I go somewhere with the people dear to me.(if you don't recall here here here and here may jog your memory) I love  peace and calm but a little adventure is good for the soul too, like a glass of wine or a big piece of cake, I can't do it every day but once every so often leaves you with a sigh of happiness and lots of happy memories.

ON With the memory sharing, thats what I do here after all...


first off we took things slow and while jakes mum was sleeping off jet lag evil(so Jake's Mom could sleep off jet lag without having two crazy kids love her to death) we went on a walk to the duck pond.

I was fine, calm even until we got to the water, then my to year old was just too brave, she made me so nervous, until I couldn't take it anymore "Jake you take the camera and I'll take her!" In all honesty Jake is probably right with his super relaxed view of Adeline trying to pet ducks by the lake, she probably wouldn't trip of fall headfirst or try to go in after one... but I'm not willing to risk it. I know... "calm down woman", I'll try but I can guarantee anything until my babies are adults.
