I am beginning to think that "busy" is becoming the "norm" these days... We only dropped my parents off at the airport this last Monday, and by Wednesday we were back on the road again. We celebrated my mother-in-laws 60th birthday and then attended a Familientag (family reunion) on Saturday. Sunday was our leisure day and we decided to visit "Werkstatt der Schmetterlinge" (Workshop of Butterflies), a garden and lifestyle market. Held on the grounds of Schloss Eutin, which is surrounded by a beautiful lake, tents lined the grounds filled with eye candy and flowers to make make any gardener drool. To complete the theme, a tent was set up with tropical butterflies from Costa Rica that had been sent as cocoons and later hatched.
Later we took a stroll on a path that lead us around the lake and the grounds of the estate and we captured a short glimpse of a father and his sons, leaping back and forth across a gap by the lake... It definitely reminds one that you don't have to spend money to bond as a family and create lasting memories.
What do you do with your family to have fun and spend time together without spending money?
