Yesterday evening, Brad's parents came in (Grampy and Grammy) from Niagara Falls. They had some trouble with their GPS and had me worried, but they finally arrived safe and sound! We stayed in and had some turkey schnitzel for dinner.
|It says "Welcome, I love you!"|
Friday Brad had to work, of course. We took G&G's car and went to Marktkauf for some groceries. They had a fave of Brad's for lunch, Leberkaese. It was fun, especially picking out the beer. Grampy likes beer (Like father, like son) so this is quite a wonderland. Over here, you can buy a case of different kinds of beer. You just grab an empty case and fill it with whatever beers you choose.
Brad came home a bit early and our lovely neighbor and friend Johanna had offered to take us to see the famous Cathedral in Augsburg. She also has a giant van (especially in Germany!) and took us all together.

|Reminds me of Notre Dame!|
|Grampy or Grumpy?|

This area is the site of a REALLLLY old chapel, from the 8th century! They have excavated many cool things. Here are some of them, from the Romans.
|Not an artifact :)|
We came home and waited for our next visitors to arrive. Our friends from Lambsheim are spending the weekend here! In a hostel, but here in Augsburg! So the Schaefer's arrived and met the grandparents, it was very nice! Brad and his Dad got the grill fired up.
The Schaefer's had the most excellent gift for us! They made a photobook of all of our visits together!! As you blog readers know, I LOVE pictures! There is no better gift :) It has our visits here from '05, '08 and this year so far, and their visit to us in '11. So special. They also brought the second greatest gift ever...chocolate.
|Popcorn chocolate? OH YEAH.|
When we visited the Schaefer's in December, we all played this fun card game called Ligretto, and they bought 2 sets for us! It's really fun!
Stefanie's mom found this picture of us from 1984. It's her, me and Diana (then Dalton.) LOL!!!
|There's a lot of LOVE on that loveseat.|
|All the kiddies being goofy!|
