Several of the new friends that we have made here in Germany have given us the suggestion of taking the kids to PlayMobile Land near Nurnburg. Because we had a 'free day', Matt, Brad & I decided to try the PlayMobile adventure yesterday. While we were out, both sets of parents took a trip to Eichstat.
We had such a great time...I think it was by far my favorite day of the entire trip so far. It was a park that we could have spent several days playing...it was incredibly big. I was amazed at the low cost (7 euros for adults and 5 for the kids) and the overwhelming size of the place. The park was as large as Astroworld and it was completely designed for young children (1-8 years or so)...that made it perfect for our group.
At one point we even had Brad (in his wheelchair), Uncle Matt and Zeke out on a log raft in the middle of the Pirate Cove part of the park. It was pretty funny watching the three of them navigate through the water with just a couple of oars. Kaelyn and I stayed on the shore to take pictures. Brad decided to 'make us feel included' by splashing us with his oar.
I have pictures that I will post later. We are using an internet cafe right now and I don't have a way to download the pics. More later....
