Flashy Friday May 3

This week we continued our study of the Romans. We learned all about the Roman Baths and how they were built and operated. Living in Europe gives us a unique opportunity to visit Roman ruins. We took a field trip this week to the spa town of Baden-Baden, Germany to visit preserved ruins from a military Roman Bath. The museum is small but it was still possible to see the heating systems they used as well as the drainage systems. The museum is really well thought out and we definitely enjoyed our visit.

There were guide-phones to use in English and a short animated video of the assumed layout of the building. We spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying Baden-Baden. We hope to return some day and take advantage of the thermal baths in town!

The Alps!

We went camping for Father’s Day with some friends. We did some hiking and some biking and took lots of pictures. I’m still winding down from the trip and unpacking and doing laundry so I’ll just share some photos quickly 🙂

The stand-in for the stolen Trek is Justin’s Kona Ute. He can’t play around as much on it but I still think it’s gorgeous.

Unfortunately we did not get a group picture. We wanted one with everyone and their bikes. I guess we’ll just have to go again!
