On Friday evening, we all went to Atschel's, one of our favorite traditional German restaurants. The four of us shared the Frankfurt platter, which has tons of meat, potatoes, and sauerkraut. Don't forget the fried apples for dessert!
Looks like a Thanksgiving Feast
After dinner, we went for a stroll around the city, enjoying the cool air of the evening. Brian took these really cool pictures of the Romer Platz at sunset.
On Saturday, we went on a boat ride down the Rhine River with some of my coworkers. The sun was out in full force, so it was a warm cruise through the valley, but the blue skies made the scenery quite beautiful!

We saw several castles along the way
And lots of beautiful vineyards
Coolin' off in the shade!
On Sunday, we stayed cool in our apartment through the afternoon. When some clouds moved in, we went for a walk through Grunberg Park, which is just a few blocks from our house. I love that park in the summertime - it's so vibrant and lush! For dinner, Brian grilled some delicious steaks, pineapple, corn, and we even tried grilling avocado! It was quite the grill-tastic feast. Brian has really earned the title of Grill Master :)
Nita and Donnie caught their train to Dresden on Monday, where they will be visiting other relatives till the end of the month. We can't wait to see them in August and hear all about their travels in Germany!
