Even more May Germany trip pics

Wednesday was a big family visit day and we started the day early with a drive to Rottweil where my dad's side family lives. We had lunch at Aunt Lore's, saw Granddad Gustav and Hanne after that and then got cake at the house of my aunt Gerda. After a long drive back we went to m cousin Albert, his wife Waldtraut and daughter Isabelle for dinner. Thursday we traveled to Sigmaringen to see the castle, check out the downtown and after that visited Sigmaringen.

Upon arriving in Rottweil, Cheryl made a new friend

Isabelle got a big hug from Cheryl and we got a great dinner of Fleischkaese, potato salad and mixed salad for dinner, plus the great company of Albert, Waldtraut and Isabelle

The semolina with cream and strawberries desert was fantastic

On Thursday we went to Sigmaringen where Amy measured up against a knight

The swan came by to see if we had anything to eat

Our lunch stop on Wednesday was at the Gasthof zum Bach in Bad Saulgau

A very pleased Georgia after she managed to open the tight Pilsner bottle fliptop

Amy enjoyed Swabian bacon Duennete for lunch

The May tree in downtown Bad Saulgau looks quite sad against the cold gray sky

Before dinner, Amy and I ran through the countryside around Ostrach. Amy decided to wear her traveling compression socks because it was so cold and we brought only shorts.
