Germany Day 9

After a week of traveling and exploring new things every day, I cannot underestimate the value of having some down time.  The Bissonnette’s provided a perfect blend of new experiences and time to just relax and enjoy each other’s company.  On our 9th day in Europe, we spent the morning enjoying life at The Hangar.  We helped with some yard work, enjoyed the trampoline and zipline, and played games around the house.

That afternoon we headed to Manderscheid for a medieval festival.  Wow.  This was such a neat experience!  We got to see a jousting contest; my Dad got a TON of incredible pictures of this (I will try to only use a couple).  We also explored castle ruins there.  The B’s treated the boys to a gift at the festival (which they LOVE and are still playing with on a daily basis around here) – Ethan chose a sword and Micah chose a shield.

We had some more downtime later that afternoon.  Micah took a nap (what?!) and some of us played Settlers.  That evening we headed to another town nearby for a fun city festival.  We ate dinner, enjoyed music and even got to feed some goats!
