Spring in Germany

We spent a few days in Germany last week and had a wonderful time.  Germany is so beautiful, especially in the Spring.  We saw so many tulips and other flowers.  These are my Dad's flowers.  He has tulips and daffodils, and a lot more. 
They love Easter in Germany.  Cute little decorations are everywhere.  Below is my parents' "Easter Egg Tree".  Below that is a neighborhood Easter Egg tree, from a house in my parents' village, on a type of evergreen.

We love my parents' across-the-street neighbors.  They own a wonderful restaurant in another village and have always been so nice to us when we visit.  In the summer, they've brought over sweet cherries from their tree for our "kinder".  :)  This time around, on Easter Sunday, she brought over a cute plate full of Easter goodies for our kids, including delicious Kinder eggs, painted Easter eggs, easter cookies, and some candy.  A few days later, she brought over some jars of sour cherry preserves from her trees, for our "Kinder" again.  I was able to bring one jar home with me! 

Soon, I will have to post about all the wonderful food we ate.  I always come back with some extra poundage.  So many carbs, so little time.
