Last Saturday ended up being wildly busy for us, first we went to the Hitscherhof Farm Festival which you can read about in part 1 of our weekend, and then we celebrated at neighborhood birthday party for our friend Tobias. It has been difficult to meet people in our small German village, but Tobias and his wife Diana have gone above and beyond to help us feel welcome. We’ve been to a few of their infamous backyard cook outs now, and we always enjoy good food and good company, but this night was particularly beautiful as Aurora and I explored their yard and enjoyed the sunset.
We’ve taught her not to eat anything she finds, even if it looks like a fruit she’s had before, because there are so many growing around us, some of which are poisonous. She still likes to pick them though. 🙂
We were certainly exhausted after two family outings on Saturday, but we had so much fun hanging out with old friends and new. This next weekend we’re planning to go to Cologne with the Gill’s on Saturday, a big farmer’s market or Apple Festival on Sunday, and possibly swimming on Monday at the base since Jon is off. I’m happily exhausted just thinking about all of the fun.
