We had a very festive Saturday. We took the RegioBahn to the village Emmendingen to experience their Christmas market. It was lovely. We fell victim to the smell of fried dough and bought a Striebele--fancy funnel cake.
All the kids wanted to skate on the outdoor ice rink. It was crowded, covered with snow, and we didn’t let them. Instead, they rode a carousel and played in a nearby park. Also, remember the Striebele!
Later we took a bus from Emmendingen to Sexau for a Christmas party. It was almost seven, and the kids didn’t want to go. We were at the party for about ten minutes when Thomsen told me he never wanted to leave. They had a finished basement with a ping-pong table and so many toys. Thom and Vinnie began a game of Monopoly on a board from the 60s!
We had to run and hold open a closing door to board the train back to Freiburg, but we made it!
