After church on Sunday we took the tram to Günterstal. We hiked straight up into the forest toward lunch. My German teacher in September had recommended this restaurant, and I hadn’t gone yet. Errol checked it out a few weeks ago and liked it so much he planned to take his fellow philosophers there during his epistemology of ethics workshop.
The kids weren’t that thrilled with the hike, but it was beautiful and the food at Waldrestaurant St. Valentin was delicious.
Our life these days revolves around World Cup matches, and we made it home to watch Spain lose. Errol’s flight back from England was delayed, but he returned to see the evening game.
Between soccer matches, we walked to Mariotti Eiscafe for an ice cream to honor what would have been our grandfather’s 97th birthday on Sunday, July 1. He loved ice cream.
Ab and Ward spent their last morning in Freiburg alone at the Schauinsland. The rest of us had the cable car experience earlier in the year, and the kids had school anyway.
We met up with them after lunch and made a quick visit to the Münster before taking the tram to the Strandbad. Abby was fantastic, and we all had so much fun with her at the pool.
We ate supper at home and celebrated Ab’s half birthday a day early.
Abby and Ward left Freiburg early Tuesday morning. Conveniently, they took the same tram to the train station that the bigs took to school. We loved their visit!
