Come and gone…

15 Jul

Our first visitors in our “new” house (since moving in Janurary) just left today.  My parents were here for just over a week and it was fantastic.  Of course the time always goes too quickly and there is always more you wish you could have fit in- but, I am grateful for the time they were able to spend here.  I enjoyed every second of their visit and am so happy they had a chance to see our new surroundings and experience a bit of our life in Germany.  We spent time in Frankfurt and Heidelburg, shopped in a nearby town of Bad Homburg, rode bikes, and went to the zoo (among other things)!  Here are a few pictures (mostly taken by my mom) of their time here.  I wish I had time to write a more detailed account of the last week but this will have to do for now.  Life is good and having family here to share it with is even better!

Quinn loved the bike trailer we rented! And so did Kitty.

Is it just me, or does this giraffe look surprised?

Definite style points Quinn. I like the approach.

"I'm just 24 years old, leaning up against this fence. What? You don't think I'm getting back in that stroller do you?"

Hotel Gummersbach is the hot place to stay this summer.  My sister is booked next and so we’re on to ready the house and prepare the suite, ha!

    Great pictures, Rach! That one of Quinn and your dad is just adorable. Of course, I love the one of Quinn eating the doughnut. And yes, that giraffe does look surprised. I’m really glad that you had a nice visit with your parents. I’m sure it was hard to see them go. Has your sister had her visit with you yet? How grateful you must be to have your family come visit!! Miss you gals. Quinn is getting so big and her hair is so long and blonde!! xoxo
