Here are some pictures of our trip to Gramado and Canela. It was cold and rainy all 5 days, but we still had fun exploring the amazing natural parks, shopping in the gorgeous German towns, eating chocolate from the local factories, visiting the old German house (pictured above) built entirely without nails (notice the gorgeous cookstove that is still in use to make apple strudel--very yummy), staying at our cozy B & B, eating at the Ratatouille Restaurant, and exploring the Steam Museum (pictured above with the train coming out of the building--very cool). The beauty of this place is amazing. I wish we could do a better job of capturing it on film. There are waterfalls everywhere throughout this mountainous region of the state. It's gorgeous beyond belief.

I loved that movie some friends rented it and brought it over--how neat there is a restaurant....what great pictures--it looks just gorgeous there! I too cannot wait to see you in June!!!!!

Beautiful! I'm amazed that house was built entirely out of nails. I have a mental picture of Pa Ingalls making pegs, and I would guess that's how they built it??? The girls were thrilled to see Remy at the Ratatouille restaurant. Very exciting!

I should correct this to add that MY girls were thrilled to see your pics of Remy the Rat. I'm sure they'd love to eat there one day.... How was the food, BTW?
