Our Weekend Continued

Hello everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Monday! It's always so hard to get back into the groove of things after a holiday weekend, especially when the weekends ALWAYS fly by.

Here's is our weekend update continued: Lots of pictures to follow.

Saturday Jon and I got up and around, picked up our friend Brendan and headed for the Opel Zoo. Jon and I went to the Opel Zoo earlier this year when it was still very chilly, so it was nice to see it during the summer. Some pics of our trip:






And one of the best parts of the zoo was eating hamburgers!
This is my second hamburger since living here in Germany.
Perfect 4th of July food!
It was pretty hot that day, so after the zoo we headed back to the house and took it easy for the rest of the night.

Sunday we slept in (which is not normal for us, so it was such a treat) and took our time getting up and around. In the afternoon we drove to Frankfurt to visit the Stadel Museum. It's a great museum with some amazing art. Of course I took pictures:

Some of my favorite from that day:


We stopped to have lunch at the cafe in the museum which was beautiful. We sat outside, had turkey panini's and a glass of wine. It was such a nice lunch.

It was a very busy day in Frankfurt, there was a huge group of people gathered around the river watching a marathon. We stopped to watch for a bit and afterward headed to see the Dom. They were in the middle of working on the outside of the church so I could only get a couple of pictures of the sides and the back. It was still very beautiful.


It was a wonderful holiday weekend and we filled it with plenty of things to see.

Today I have piles of laundry calling my name! How laundry sneaks up on me like that is mind boggling!

Hope you all have a great Tuesday!
