Rudesheim June 30th

Back on Saturday, June 30th we went to Rudesheim, Germany with the Shields family. The Shields family have been our unofficial sponsor family.  Our actual sponsors are fantastic, they just don't have children yet so the Shields stepped in to provide loads of info and FAMILY support.  They have been great to us. Leslie has really  made me feel welcome and I know we will become good friends over the next few years. They have 4 adorable children, that have been super sweet to the girls.

  Rudesheim is on the sunny side of the Rhine. Surrounded by the best wine growing areas of fine Rheingau Riesling wine, Rüdesheim lies on the romantic river current and proves on sight why the town belongs to the most well known spots on the Rhine.  I am hoping that we can go back with out the children to partake in all of the wine tours.

I loved the stone wall on the edge of town, you can't really tell that this was a steep little hill.
