Vacation Day #3

Sunday July 8, 2007

Today we took the kids to Braunschweig to the Petting Zoo. This was a lot of fun. The kids got to feed Raccoons, Camels, Donkeys, Horses and goats. The kids really enjoyed feeding the raccoons. Normally, we only see those at night while Camping.

It was a really hot day, so we let the kids run through the sprinklers. After awhile, we took off back to the park from the day before. They had train tracks there and the kids all got to ride a small train. They each got 2 rides. And the rides were only 50 cents each. I felt that was pretty decent for what they got.

A big thing here in Germany is Garden Houses. They have a big piece of land with a small house on it and they use it for growing gardens or whatever. I shouldn’t say a house, because it really is only the size of a living room or something. It is pretty small and there is a bathroom usually outside. Kind of like an outhouse, but it is flushable toilets.

Anyway, we went to their Garden House. The kids got to pick Raspberries, Johannisberries and Carrots.

We ended up back at the house and had a bar b q. It was such a hot day. The only sunny day the whole time we were in Lengede. Other than Sunday, it rained everyday.
