Our fun afternoon

Here we are inside The Chocolate Haus. Remember this place, Grandaddy and Grandmother? The Chocolate Haus is in a historical German village in Amana...and it is along the bike trail. So after biking about a mile we stopped here to rest.


Travis treated us to a peach smoothie and a mocha frappie from his birthday money that he received from Bestefar. Delicious! So, here we are outside The Chocolate Haus drinking our cool refreshing drinks...building our pedaling energy back up...as you can see, our bikes are behind us.

Then we biked an extra mile further to play at the Amana school playground. Needless to say, we were all pooped and our legs felt like jello by the time we arrived back at the van. We will all sleep good tonight!

this actually looks like our park. This is great, candace, that they get this much exercise. What a wonderful thing not having a TV.

That candy store looks like my kind of place.

Biking is one of my favorite things to do! I am glad y'all had a fun day! :) Do Allyson and Caleb both ride their own bikes?

Candace said...

Yes, they ride their own bikes...although Kaleb still has training wheels on his bike.
We have fun...maybe one day when the kids get older we can attempt longer biking adventures like you and Ryan go on! :)
