This winter we finally got some snow! I can’t tell you how excited we all were- especially since we didn’t get any in Köln last year. We spent most of the day outdoors because we knew it wouldn’t last.

We randomly ran into our old friend Jens and his daughter after not seeing him for about 15 years! They decided to come sledding with us when the kids were done building snowmen.
On our way to the Herkulesberg to go sledding. It’s also called Mont Klamott (roughly translates to “mountain of stuff”). After WW2 most of the rubble (LOTS of rubble- Köln was almost completely destroyed) was brought to this area (Mont Klamott is the largest of eleven such hills). It’s a popular sledding place now. Simon came here as a child also.
The snow saucers from Santa sure came in handy!
Time to head home
It was a beautiful, magical day.
