My cousin Holli and I abandoned our husbands took our kids (and Wynter!) down into Bavaria to get up close and personal with hundreds of cows this morning.

We sat out on the flightline in Germany for more than 90 minutes due to a weather delay. Usually I prefer the window seat, but he switched with me so I could stand in the aisle awhile.
