Fun at the Christmas Markets
On Saturday, Cameron had a birthday party (at a paint-your-own crockery shop - fancy taking a bunch of 5 and 6 year olds to a place like this.. sounds like the 'bull in a china shop concept!). He had a wonderful time!
Nicole wanted to see a 'special' Christmas market near Nollendorfplatz with her friend Libby - so Alexander and I went to the Berliner X-mas market with Libby's husband Ash, and their 2 kids Hanna and Zac. We went there specifically to go on all of the great rides!
At the end of our time there, the kids had been on two sets of bumper cars, in through the fun house, on the mad mouse, down the giant slide and on the super-swings! Of course, they needed a parent to go with them!!
The mad-mouse was Alexander's first Roller-coaster experience and he did really well, although he told me after "I'm not ready for those big ones in America, yet, Daddy!"
We had a great time. I have never seen 3 kids eat a bag of fairy floss (candy floss) so fast!
Later we picked up Cameron from his party then went to some other friends for a drink and some Christmas cheer!
