Today I am linking up with the wonderful Kristal, Katie, Mia and Carly for Thankful Thursday! I love that they are hosting such a special link up, what's better than focusing on what we are grateful for??
For my Thankful Thursday, I thought I would go ahead and recap my mama's visit. Because man, I am so thankful for her and that time with her. She visited a couple of weeks ago and we had so much fun. It was so nice to spend lots of quality time with her, I just missed her so much!
My mom got here Friday afternoon, and I am not going to lie, tears were shed at the airport. I'm such a mama's girl! That night we walked all around downtown and ate some German food- which Marcia did not like. I definitely saw that one coming:)
There are great gelato shops everywhere here. You can get a cone or you can get a huge treat like the one above. We all decided to share and it was pretty great. On Saturday Rob had an away game so my mom and I spent the day downtown walking, talking and shopping...a perfect girl's day!
On Sunday, we went to Dachau Concentration Camp outside of Munich. We had been before and as always it is a moving and very sad experience. It really opens your eyes and your heart to an unfathomable pain. We did a tour and learned so much.
After our tour, we then drove into Munich to eat at the famous, Hofbrauhaus and then luckily after dinner we stumbled upon the surfers! This is so neat. I mentioned this before when Holli, Ellie and I were in Munich but there are people surfing right in the middle of town on this river. It is wayy cool.
Monday we enjoyed a relaxing day and then Tuesday, my mom and I headed to Prague! Yes, this is my third time this year- but that shows how much I love it there! A place that is a must see when in Europe. It is such a great night trip to take visitors as it is only 3 hours away from us and it's beauty is indescribable.
It was a little rainy the whole time we were there and it was just so pretty. I love how the water reflects off the cobblestone in this picture...
my pretty mama striking a pose on the prettiest street:)
Because of the rain, I hardly pulled my camera out. But finally for a few pictures I did...
A view of the beautiful Charles Bridge. And then after a little walk, my mama and I on Charles Bridge. It is just spectacular.
The changing of the guards up at Prague Castle, it is very neat...
We toured Prague Castle, which is spectacular, and it gives you this incredible view (back to the phone pics)...
And crepes, oh crepes, how I love you.
We headed back to Nuremberg on Wednesday afternoon and met Rob that night for a delicious burger (we found the best burger place here, yay!). The next day was a very relaxing day, we were tired from all the walking we did in Prague. Then that night, my mom and I went to see Grease the Musical (part of my March goals) and it was so great!
They did such a great job! The company is touring all around Germany. The speaking parts were in German and the songs in English, it was so fun!
With the couple days we had left with my mom we went on a fabulous bike ride, enjoyed downtown some more and soaked in our time together.
My husband being all adventurous...
so grateful for this woman, the best mom a girl could ask for.
Spring is here ladies and gents!
Her last night here was spent at the basketball game! Mamasita, we are so glad you could come and see us. We had such a wonderful time and loved getting you all to ourselves!
