Schloss Solitude small castle in Stuttgart

Looking through the archway you can see Leonberg a city north of Stuttgart. this castle was so small. we missed the tour but dont really think paying to see the tour would have been worth it. great view on the top of the hill though.

Stuttgart Church, morning with Kris

 The details on this church was wonderful!!
 This was one of the many churches in Stuttgart Germany
 The gargoyles were like hell hounds. some had wings and looked like bats and dogs. they were very interesting. wish i knew more about them.

Walking around this church it was so full of beauty. and really it wasnt a very big church. one of the smallest we have seen so far but the most details!!!

trip to dairy farm and Ritter Sport chocolate factory

 Grumps was so excited to share fresh milk with the boys, we stopped at a farm on the way to the chocolate factory Great German lady took us on a little tour of the cows it was neat. boys not too fond of fresh milk but it was a great experience.milk is Milch in German.
 Ritter Sport chocolate factory doesnt do factory tours anymore but they do have a free museum over the discount chocolate store. by the way-family that is the chocolate i sent at Christmas-you will get more this year-any requests for favorite combinations ?above is this mini factory you push a button and it delivers a little mini bar of chocolate to sample cute idea.
coco tree-they also had real coco seeds to try the boys did not like them imagine that.

Spain last post 8 What a TRIP

 OK so our Spain trip was a long hard trip with lots of incidents that made it stressful, but we did end up loving the beach-even though people should have worn more clothing to make it more relaxing to us. but we had a good family bonding time. In case you didn't know what went wrong i can highlight a few of them. Lost my cell phone, stuck at airport for 3 hrs because rental car info was wrong, got pick pocketed--in a foreign county-that is sooo stressful, husbands phone stopped working -battery problem, sun burns, Liam got a rash seperate to the ones we all got-or in addition to the ones we all got, eaten alive came home with strange bites or rash doctor wasn't sure which but we are going to scar from all the pock marks Kristopher has the most poor thing. hum what else was there oh i had food poisoning...there were more but we bonded as a family.. Love my boys all of them.
 through the underpass to the Beach we go. Cala Romana
