Too busy to think
Well, it's been a while since I've posted. I seem to be too busy these days. Between the kids, soccer, piano lessons, the out and about group my friend and I started, the choir I'm in and Hans' work stuff, life is pretty crazy (not to mention girls night outs. :) ). A few days before we headed off to the states, Christy and I headed up another ladies Out and About Discovery group. We went to my favorite restaurant, which is a greek one downtown Wiesbaden. We had a great turn out. I think there were 14 of us. I love being able to show ladies new places to discover in Germany. I know I've said this before, but I really feel very blessed to have such an amazing group of ladies in my ward. I have really loved getting to know each of them.
This is the waiter I get every time I'm there. He always remember everyone that comes in. He love the Americans and speaks great english. This has been a family run business for a very long time. He's one of the grandsons of this family. Notice all the individual checks for each lady in the group?
A couple nights after my O&A group, Hans and I had a work function to go to. This was the enormous cheese burger we got to share. Suprisingly, it tasted pretty good too. We were eating the leftovers for days.
The next night, we went down to Kaiserslautern to celebrate Eva's birthday with the Terhunes. They used to live up here, but about a month ago, Chris was reassigned an hour south of us. We have been very sad not to have them so close. We went swimming at a really cool german pool then went and had dinner and afterward, had cake and ice cream.
On the actual day of Eva's birthday (October 6th), we were heading to the states for a quick trip. So, we had her open her birthday gifts on our bed in the morning before getting ready to go. Gabe was really upset because he didn't have a present to open. I guess Eva must have felt sorry for him because she eventually let him open one after crying for a bit.
Happy 4th Birthday Eva. We love you and are very blessed to have you as part of our family.
