Hi friends! I wanted to share our Germany trip here on the blog and I hope you enjoy. Germany is a place we have called home and every time we go back it’s better than before. This year we planned out a route from southern Germany to northern and made 7 stops along the way.
We saw friends in every spot and even were hosted by a few of our favorite people!
Logan and I always have a blast when we travel together but it’s extra special for him to see all his little American (and Australian) friends and get a big dose of English speaking!
Our first stop was in Nuremberg Germany where we took a train to Bamberg, Germany and stayed with Augustine & Bre (they are basically family and we love them!!) They’ve got the cutest little guy Landon and although Logan was pretty jealous of me cuddling him, he warmed up…a little.
We’ve gotten to watch Augustine play many times before but this was fun seeing his game with Logan and in his home arena. They played against a team that another dear friend plays on so to watch them both was really a treat!
From Bamberg we headed to Crailsheim Germany where we got to hang with our Australian friends and old teammates Ben and Bria. It’s always a good time when me and Bria get together (ask our husbands) and I’ve missed having her on a team with me. Ben and Zo played together in Lithuania and we’ve missed them! They’ve got two little boys and Logan had a blast to say the least!
I also got to see my friend Maria, who I adore!! Talk about having a good time! 🙂 You ever met someone who radiates love and positivity ALL the time? Welp, that’s her!! Spending time together always sets my soul on fire and I’m so glad we got to hang out on this trip! She brought her 2 sweet boys with her and Logan had a blast with them.
We headed way up to Vechta, Germany next where I got to hang out with my friend Andrea who I have known for 4 years and weekly video chat on bible study with. This was our first time meeting in person (even though it didn’t feel like it) and oh my goodness her little one Collins and Logan had a full night of belly laughs! Such a sweet family and we had so much fun!!
Next up, Bonn, Germany. Back to basketball. It was Mother’s Day and what better way to celebrate than with some incredible women and some ball! Getting to spend time with the Mayo family was a treat. We have spent time together in the summers as we are both in Texas BUT heading to their overseas element was quite a treat! Our little ones played and we had some great laughs as well.
I also got to have dinner with my girlfriend Masha who I haven’t seen in several years. She’s a gem and radiates beauty and happiness. I was so glad we could hang for the day because we had so much to catch up on. I declared our crew the M’s (Meisha, Mahsa, and Morgan) . We had fun to say the least.
Onward bound to our final stop, Oldenburg! Usually our Germany trip consists of just Oldenburg and visiting the Paulding’s! Rickey plays basketball there and his wife Kara is one of my favorite people on the planet! They’ve got 3 kids, 2 boys and a girl and Logan literally has a blast when they get together. They are all 3 so sweet with him and it’s like his special siblings for the week! Me & Kara always have the best time together and she just gets me. She’s been doing this basketball thing overseas for 15 years so I look to her in so many ways for advice and support when it comes to hoops, motherhood, and much more!
Back to Klaipeda , Lithuania for 3 more weeks and then home to Texas!
I cherish every trip we take, all the friendships we make and continue to grow, and for all the incredible people this lifestyle has brought to our family!!
Until next Time,
