We’ve been home for a couple weeks now, and looking at these pics is really making me miss our time in Germany and Poland! If you missed it, you can read parts onetwothree and four.

We had some gorgeous weather during our time in Berlin. Blue skies with big puffy clouds and then rain in the evenings. Magical!

There is beauty to be found!

I loved the reflected building in these windows. Can you see me on the bottom left?

I’m not sure what all these stickers are from–but they made the corner pop with color and texture.

That smile melts me!

Looks like that bike has been there for a while.

We visited the Memorial to Murdered Jews. It was very moving. It’s impossible to image what took place. We talked about it a bit with Matthias. He’s nine years old now and I want him to learn about these things. It was very emotional for me. And I have to tell you the significance of David walking the streets of Berlin, smiling and exploring was not lost on me. It was not long ago that anyone with a disability was considered less than human. David is so precious to us and adds beauty to our lives.

The Brandenburg Gate was beautiful! Definitely one of my favorite parts of our trip.

There was a man creating giant bubbles and I loved the way they look in front of the Brandenburg Gate. Surreal!

These break dancers were so talented!

A professional cycling race took place the weekend we explored Berlin. Steve loves cycling–so the timing was perfect!

Matthias found this artists’ palette and was so excited. That kid loves to create!

We do love Berlin!

I’m already itching for another trip abroad. I’m especially missing our cousins in England and our friends in Scotland!

We have a camping trip planned in a few weeks and then a cabin retreat with my side of the family at the beginning of August. It’s full on summer around here!
