Germany Part 8: Saying Goodbye

When we weren't celebrating birthdays or going on excursions, we could probably be found baking with Grandma, going to the park, shopping or just enjoying each other's company around the house--Uncle Christian played so many board games with Liam!  We were only there for a week and a half, so we were pretty busy each day. On our last day together, Mom and I went and saw the new Cinderella movie (my dad took the kids to see it while we were in Venice), and we loooved it! It was so fun to spend some time with just my mom. She is such an angel! Another favorite day was when my mom, Emma and I had a girls day and went downtown to her favorite French bakery and ate some amazing treats, shopped to our heart's content at H&M, and then met up with the the guys and all the kids for dinner at a favorite German restaurant!

But sadly, and I know I'm forgetting things, it all had to come to an end. And boy is it hard to say goodbye! Isabella had an especially teary farewell. And I remember overhearing Liam saying something about wanting to live in Germany forever (so sweet!). We're all just so thankful for this trip and will remember it for the rest of our lives!

Oh how I love my dad! ❤️ They played and played in this box... Looked to me like they were ready to set sail. Ahoy! My mom took us to this super yummy French bakery on our girls day. I love her so much and wish she were in this pic. It was such a fun day! Every night was a sleepover! I could listen to him all day! So wish he lived closer and could give my kids guitar lessons. Maybe someday! On our last day there, Mom and I went and saw Cinderella! (Grandpa took the kids to see it while we were in Venice.) that movie was dreamy! It was especially fun to see it in Europe with my mom! One last pic before we headed out to the airport. 😭 Goodbye is always so hard! This girl had an especially hard time leaving. We pretty much couldn't say the words "grandma and grandpa" the whole journey home or she'd burst into tears. And a few days before we left, I overheard Liam say, "I wish we could stay here forever or longer.
Liam crashed! On our way home from the airport we ran into Costco, and these jet-lagged sweethearts were not impressed.
^^On our way home from the airport, we stopped at Costco where Liam crashed in the cart and Juliette and Charlie gave me special looks letting me know how unimpressed they were. haha
