Around Wiesbaden

My mom recently made a trip across the big pond to visit us here. It was extra special, because she got to meet Hiccup for the first time. Yay!

We wanted to show her some of the highlights of the area. Our first stop was Brauhaus Castel, an authentic German restaurant.

Then after lunch, the kids went home for naps, and Mom and I went downtown by ourselves for a bit of siteseeing and souvenir shopping.
