We ALWAYS love a good flyover, especially if it's Sam in a chinook, flying over our house.

Road trip to the Bavarian Alps (Northern Romantic Road)

A couple of weekends ago we had a spare couple of days and wanted to do something cool. Sam wanted to use his new snowboard and so we decided on Garmsich. Garmisch is a place we have been so many times, but we love it a lot! The place we usually stay at was booked most the weekend but they did have openings on Sunday night. We decided Sam would head down early with a friend who already had a room booked and the kids and I would head down on Sunday.

I so enjoyed my road trip with Londyn and Trip. Our GPS took me a random way. For a while I was concerned but when I double checked the route with my phone GPS I realized we were good to go. We took our time, made some stops and soaked it all in. The new route ended up being part of the Northern Romantic Road, so I was super excited!
The courtyard and well of Schloss Harburg. We pulled into this amazing castle and I had no idea where we were. It just came out of nowhere. The castle has a biergarten (restaurant) and it was even open. Because we were slightly excited to see Sam we didn't stay and eat. I do plan on taking the family back to eat there because it is situated above a river and it is absolutely breathtaking.

Munich Zoo, Germany

Back in October we decided to take a quick weekend trip to Munich. We were able to go to the Munich Aquarium, a Munich vs. Malaga basketball game and also the Tierpark Hellabrunn (zoo). We had so much fun that weekend. I realized how much I loved Munich. We had never actually stayed in Munich. Munich is an amazing city and has a ton to do. The excitement and energy during the basketball game was so contagious. Sam has a friend that plays for the Malaga, Spain team, so it was especially fun to watch him play. We took the kids with us and we were out late with all the drunk and excited Germans and Spaniards.

The Aquarium (we felt) was a bit of a let down. It was a little overpriced and super tiny. It took us like 20 minutes to walk through the whole thing. If the kids had like it, it would have made it totally worth it (as usual)! But, Londyn was afraid of the dark, "tunnel-y," scary aquarium and wanted out of the place as soon as we walked in. Trip enjoyed it a bit more which was nice.

Homemade Valentine's Day Cards (Free Printable!)

Is anyone else having a hard time believing it is already February? I know I am. Well, we all know what February means! Valentine's Day. The day we celebrate love. Love for our friends, love for our classmates, love for our teachers, love for our colleagues, siblings, significant others, children, etc. It is so exciting, right?!

This year I decided to have some fun making my own homemade Valentine's Day cards. I brainstormed a few cheesy tag lines and went for it. I had so much fun that I decided to share them with you. They are so simple. Near the end of the post you can download the blank cards in a PDF doc. Happy creating!
