Of course Bethany is at work today so I loaded Avi and Zoe up in the stroller for a nice morning walk. Our goal was to find the thrift store and then stop into a bakery on the way home to pick up breakfast. Well….. we finally rolled back home at lunch. We wandered around for hours looking for a big “Caritas” sign when we should’ve been searching for “Kaufhaus”. They no longer had the cheapo high chair Bethany saw the other day, but I did get Avi a warming cover for the stroller since it’s been chilly in the mornings. It afforded us a nice tour of the other side of Neuss and we found some huge playgrounds. I was, however, starving when we finally walked downtown to a bakery on the way home. Today is a two pretzel lunch day. Zoe, of course, wanted some huge strawberry monstrosity; I talked her into a simple donut. This afternoon will find us here in the apartment doing laundry and taking a nap; perhaps an evening trip to the big “walmart”-ish store.
