After the museum we walked over to the Nuremberg Volksfest. A volksfest is much like an American fair or carnival. There was food, games, beer gardens/tents and rides. We walked around, had a drink with James' coworkers and got somethings to eat. James ended up with a Radler, which is a mix of beer with maybe a lemonade or something similar, and he didn't like it so I drank about half of it. These mugs are HUGE so there was no way I was going to ever finish that drink. When I first heard of this mix I was totally turned off but after tasting it I can see myself having one in the future...it was pretty tasty!

Most days I am glad I get to be a stay at home mommy for now. Most days I am happy that we get to live overseas and experience many new things.
Every day I am thankful that I get sweet baby kisses from 2 of the cutest girls in the world. Every day I know I am blessed to have this life that I have been given.
I am just having a moment where I needed to get this out because I am just feeling sorry for myself. I miss having a paying job, miss being able to walk out my front door and talk to my neighbor. I miss popping the girls into the stroller and walking to Starbucks or going to see a friend. I really miss my friends! Friends are so hard to make and I will say that I haven't made too much of an effort but I am at a different place than others are. I can't wait until "my person" moves to Germany. I have missed having a girl around that knows me and maybe God is bringing her here for me, maybe he knows I need a friend in order to survive the next 3 years here and she couldn't be arriving at a more perfect time.
Today is just a lonely day for me.

I got some much needed retail therapy! There is something to be said about shopping online in my jammies but I would much rather hit the stores and was so glad I got a few things I have had a hard time finding here.
I have many more photo's to share from our Vegas leg of the trip on a day that I make the effort to get on the laptop and save them onto my external hard drive and then onto here. It will happen, someday. I will make the effort to add some of the Nashville pictures and tales soon.

As I mentioned in my last post our landlord butchered our yard while we were on vacation. I wanted to share a couple before and after pics with you. Please grab a hankie because I am sure this will make you just as sad as we were.
We have no idea what was running through his head but his excuse for ruining the yard was that the bushes hadn't been trimmed in 20 years.....so I guess that means he felt the need to take away any privacy we had from the street and our neighbors. There were at least 8 large trees that he cut down as well. I told James we should ask for a discount on our rent because the house isn't as nice as the yard was.

We had a great time on vacation but there is no place like my own bed! We were busy the entire 2 weeks and I will be adding some pictures this weekend.
Lolo turned 1 on April 6th and just got her first teeth on March 26th! She looks so cute as they are coming through. She took it like a champ and wasn't fussy at all.
