More Photos

We finally got the rest of the photos from our trip to Germany posted.  Check them out on Flickr.

Maggi (real name: Markus) and Jaggi (real name: Jaqueline) Grander’s church wedding was the main reason we chose to take our vacation to Germany.  They had their civil wedding 2 years ago when we still lived in Reit im Winkl.  (It is amazing how much has changed for us in 2 years!)  The wedding was a beautiful, all day affair.  The ceremony was at 2pm and we didn’t leave the reception until after midnight.

 Joe, Brigitte and Daniel are also our good friends from Reit im Winkl.  Joe is an American and Daniel was in Cami’s class.  They were an amazing gift that God had waiting for us when we moved there.  Who would have guessed that there would be a first grader in a village with a population of 3500 that spoke fluent English and German.  Brigitte was also a blessing to me (DeAnn) because she had lived in the US for 10 years and knew what it was like to live overseas. 

 On our last day we went up to Winklmoos to watch the Dirdl Dreh’n and Schuhplatt’n.  It was great to see so many familiar faces.  There was also great Bavarian food.  It is amazing how the girls can keep turning and turning and not fall over (although a couple of the younger ones did.)  The dancers are wearing the traditional costumes from the region.

    Hey Hertzog! It’s good to see things are going so well!! We wondered how everything was going. I talked to Ms. Rivas last year, and thought about what happened to Hertzog! Hope all is going well, it looks that way!

    Hey Carly! I thought it might be you. Good to hear from you. How are you…and your sister?

    We are doing well and living in Cyprus now. Are you still in the Bakersfield area?

    Are you in contact with others from Ridgeview?

    Hi! We really enjoyed your visit here and looking at the pictures again brought back good memories of it. Cant’t belive it has been 3 weeks since you left, time flies by. Glad to hear there were no more problems with Colson’s arm and he has the cast off. It was really too bad it happend the first day here. Of course since you will do more swiming there, it may be better to have had more “cast time” here and less there.

    I have finally finished laying the tiles on the terrasse and it looks very nice, but took a lot longer than I thought. That is the main reason we didn’t comment sooner. We miss you guys and Daniel says it gets lonely here without you. We have to start planning to get down there and pay you a visit.

    Hi Joe and Brigitte and Daniel,
    Time does certainly fly. Glad you got the terrasse done. Just wanted to let you know that you are always welcome. Right now the weather is still warm and so is the water. It might be worth for Daniel to miss a bit of school so you can miss the crowds and the heat. Please go on a hike for me. I’m missing the mountains and trees of Reit im Winkl.
    -DeAnn
