After Rothenburg, we headed back to Frankfurt and enjoyed a nice Sunday with my parents. We went to their small, German branch. BUT we got lucky because two of the three talks were given in English (and then translated into German), Sunday School was in English, and I had a translator for Relief Society. Easy! And then after church they had a munch-and-mingle thing going on, so we got to eat good food. Ollie finally found wurst that he liked, so victory! We really just hung out that day and enjoyed some rest.
BUT the next morning we were out again! My parents worked, so we took off back to Rudesheim (the same place we caught the Rhine River cruise boat) and rented bikes and rode along the river (after a ferry trip). Super cool.
They didn't have a bike small enough for Ollie, so the lucky dude got to ride in the trailer. He wasn't too bummed.
I mean, really?! I'm riding a bike on the Rhine River?!
My view. Someone is peeking at me!
After bike riding, we took a tram ride (over vineyard after vineyard) to a monument.
All those grapes!
The monument recognizes the creation of Germany as a country in 1871.
What goes up...
Then back "home." It was a great day!
