Spy Museum and Mauer Park Fleamarket

Saturday we took the kids to the Deutsches Spionage Museum. This was pretty fun, and would have been even more fun if it wasn’t so crowded. The two run away hits were the lie detector test and the laser maze. Then the kids all dressed up as spies for some pictures. We had planned on…

Tagging the Berlin Wall and Spreewald

Jan 2 was one of my favorite days of the trip. We got breakfast and lunch food at REWE and then all met up at a spray paint shop called Writer’s Corner. Nat and I got a little lost along the way when we had to stop to take care of Simon but eventually we…

First Day of 2020 in Berlin

Jan 1, 2020 was our day to explore Berlin. We slept in and let the kids play together all morning. The city was pretty quiet, with most stores and shops being closed down for the holiday. We started in the picturesque Nicholaiviertel and made our way to Berliner Dom. Rusty and Josh, my parents and…

NYE in Berlin

The last day of 2019 had us on the road to Berlin. After a quick stop to drop stuff at the adult hotel we arrived at Carlie’s around 4:00pm. The reunion was awesome. The kids were so excited and happy to be all together again. They all hadn’t seen each other since before Car and…

Last Day in Berlin

Blog post courtesy of Halle: We started our day by dropping Mave and Gwen off at school, and then the four of us went on the Undervelten tour. It was a tour of an underground bunker where people would go during air raids.  Our tour guide was awesome, and we learned so many cool facts…

Flughafensee

Mave came out in the morning to snuggle Nat. She’d gently lift her blanket up and climb in. She burrowed down and stayed for like an hour. I was so jealous. Cause who wouldn’t want to snuggle with this bedhead?After many fun days of sight seeing, we were all ready for a little R&R.  We…

East Side Gallery and Berliner Dom

Let’s start with what we had for breakfast. Schnecken from Zeit für Brot. (Cinnamon rolls). Berliner Pfannkuchen from Bückerei Konditorei, and Cheesecake from Princess Cheesecake. Not a bad day to be us.  Not bad at all. Then we took a train to the East Side Gallery. I’ve been looking forward to this, and it didn’t disappoint. So…

Berlin by Bike

After our flight we met Carlie and Mave at the train station. It was so good to munch on her cute cheeks again. We bought the best strawberries I’ve ever tasted from Karl’s—a tiny strawberry stand in the middle of the Gesund-Brunnen train station. It was so fun to see Carlie’s apartment. She’s living the…
