Europe 2016: Rudesheim

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!


  1. We're going to miss all your Europe blog posts. You have really chronicled your trip well. It has really been remembering the things we were able to do while you were here. What's been also nice is that Emily, too, has been posting her blogs on her visit to you and the East Coast. What fun for Mom and me! We're also looking forward to Burg Eltz and Cochem unless you have additional posts on your Europe trip!!!

    1. Add "fun" after really been, please!!! Proofread, proofread, proofread!

  2. Haha mom and dad. Looks like an awesome day! I love biking - especially in cool places. Lucky you guys!
