Edelweiss Lodge & Resort another Army perk for living in Germany

When we first got here I heard the words "marriage retreat" and thought pish posh we don't need to go on a marriage retreat there is nothing wrong with our marriage....however as always my opinions on some things change with time so we decided to take the girls and go on a marriage retreat...
Living in Germany is wonderful there are so many opportunities that are available to families being Posted here. 1 travel travel travel I don't think I could possibly say it enough ...being posted in Germany is amazing due to it's centralized location to every where...you are in driving distance to pretty much any country that you might be interested in visiting or a quick flight if you aren't into road trips. 
So being stationed here in Germany our marriage retreats are at Edelweiss Lodge & Resort in Germany..
 Now let me tell you a little about the location it is on the Germany/Austria border in the Alps it has majestic views and adventures galore....


YES you seriously can brag that you hiked the Alps or went to the Alps to all those family & friends who are vicariously living through your adventures over here but even more awesome is you yourself or if you are blessed with children are having a once in a lifetime experience years from now when we no longer live here my girls will be able to say I have lived in Europe, I have been to x,x & x countries and I have hiked the Alps :D to me the sacrifices we make are worth the amazing adventures that we are having over here...

    Now as for the marriage retreat part we had a huge group class it was more like a mixer with couples and group table projects it was a lot of fun...I will say it was lot more fun then I thought it would be..I was thinking it would be more like being preached to, or therapy like or having all our marital details picked over and scrutinized lol but it wasn't any of those things in fact we watched Mark Grungor 's laugh your way to a better marriage seminar it was funny ...The retreat was wonderful and I could ramble on for hours with every little detail about our stay there and I will toss some key highlights ups on the bottom about the lodge...a little plug for things we loved or could of passed on lol
We ended our marriage retreat part of our stay by joining together with some friends and renewing our vows at the resort with the Alps as a back ground....a wonderful way to end out the retreat...
This is a photo of some of the family when we first arrived looking a little rugged from the long drive to the lodge...listening to the kids say " Are we there yet?" lol
We however chose to stay an additional day since we had made plans to go on another adventure...which I will detail in another blog :D
