Playground Fun and Christmas Markets

Hiya folks!

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying a visit from my brother in law. It’s been amazing to catch up and explore Germany together, with the added bonus that Jan’s taken a few days off to spend with us. We’ve done all kinds of awesome things, and before we head out again for the day, I want to share some of the things we got up to over the weekend.

Today’s post will share photos from Friday and Saturday. We spent some time in a playground on Friday and went to Essen’s Christmas market on Saturday. Limbecker Platz has the coolest Christmas décor, with a massive Christmas ball made up of balls hanging from the ceiling. I also had my first gingerbread latte from Starbucks on Saturday. Can you say ah-may-zing!?

There was a random puppet show at one of the malls we visited on Saturday before the Christmas market. The kids loved it. And I’m including Jan and Willem in the term ‘kids’.

Come back tomorrow for some shots from Sunday and Monday!

Just so you know, I didn’t make the 50k words for NaNoWriMo. I ended up with 32272 words, but I have to be honest that I wrote only a single word here and there since Willem arrived. I guess in the end I gave up, because I knew I wasn’t going to make it. Maybe I’ll do better next year, we shall see. 😛

Have a good one, folks!
