We are going to be busy! Chad and I just finalized reservations for when we go up to The Netherland's a week from today! So here's what our next 2 weeks are going to be like!
Monday my parents arrive bright and early so we plan to be on the road no later than 5 am, we will stop at a local bakery and pick up some breakfast and snacks (something for my parents as well). Come home we hope to be home by noon or so. They will take a shower, take a nap if they want. We will then go downtown and tour around if they're up for it. That evening we're going out to eat at a Greek restuarant.
Tuesday Chad has to go to his ortho's office for blood draw (he has knee surgery on May 31, PRAISE GOD!! Finally 2 years of waiting it's happening). As soon as he gets home we'll head down to Garmisch. We'll stop at Schloss Linderhof, then after that we'll go to Edelweiss and check in. We'll then head downtown to Garmisch, walk around, go out to eat at our favorite restuarant there. Come back, go swimming and hot tubbing.
Wed morning check out of the hotel and drive over to Salzburg, Austria. Tour the city. Head home late afternoon early evening (it's about 2-3 hr drive).
Thursday REST. Jackson has his 2nd tball game at 5:30 that evening, so we'll all go to that and cheer him on. Do laundry, watch American Idol and House! LOL
Friday get up and on the road by 6 am is the goal and head to The Netherland's. We'll be staying just outside of Haarlem. We can check into our hotel anytime after 1400 (2 pm) so we may just push back our leave time to 7:30 or so, which I have to say wouldn't make me sad in the least!Check into the hotel, then go into Haarlem and do some sight seeing. If we can get into Corrie TenBoom's house that will be great, if not I'm thinking we'll see how far it is to the shore and drive over there and put our feet in the sea!
Saturday morning we're going to Keukenhof. www.keukenhof.com We'll spend our day there.
Sunday morning, get up and drive home, rest for the evening.
Monday we have planned to go to Rothenburg. This is only if we're not all too exhausted. If we are then we'll just hang around home, do laundry, take Jacob to tball practise that evening, maybe go downtown and walk around a little.
Tuesday we're off to the Black Forest! We'll be doing clock shopping. My parents want a nice coo-coo clock and Chad and I do as well. Chad and I area also going to look at Grandfather Clocks for the future. We'll at least pick one out and then start putting money aside for it. We'll explore over there (it's about 2-3 hrs from us) come home.
Wed morning Mom and I will be on the road by 6 am. We're going to Poland! We'll shop all day and head home late afternoon/early evening! I would like to be home by 11 pm.
Thursday Jack has his last tball game. We'll probably go to a local castle but otherwise just laundry and resting.
Friday again local things and Jacob has his last tball game.
Saturday My parents head back to Kansas.
We will be busy but I think we're going to have a GREAT time. Chad and I will take turns driving.
So if you'll say prayers for us over the next two weeks for safe travel and a good visit I'd appreciate it!
