Februar des Schreckens

February 3rd, 2017. Grandpa's 80th birthday. We spent the evening in the ER since Max decided to have a close encounter with a step at the playground

A day later it turned into a nice shiner.

February 10th, 2017. Anna-Lena decided to take matters in her own hands and climb out of the crib.

London and Stuttgart

We paid Europe a visit. And stopped over in England, too.

2016 03 March London and Germany

We saw a great many things: Humpty Dumpty - he did sit on a wall, big expensive cars, parts of James Bond, guards, old and new and changing ones, food from all the corners of the Empire, the Crown Jewels of the Queen, electric tricycles for the mail, eggs and chocolate, Romans, shields, forts, monkeys climbing lamp posts, a very unique parking lot in Alsbach, art that shows similarities with full body scanners and lots of baked goods.  And sometimes you have to decide that now is as good a time to eat that as there ever will be.

Black Walnut

For future reference:

Playing with walnuts gets your hand black.  For a while.  About a week.

Summer in Massachusetts

We tried to escape our bizarre summer 2015 in Washington DC: First the second wettest June since the Potato War and then the typical DC HHH - hazy, hot and humid.

So we ventured all five of us up to Grandpa's a week after Max' birthday.

Papa went back to Washington two days later to get some work done.  Two weeks later he flew back up and we spent a week at the beach house.  We had a lot of ice cream and fun treats at Grandpa's.
