SJ on the Move

Happy Birthday Mommy!

SJ helped her mom celebrate her birthday with the following itinerary:

9:30 a.m. - Trip to the Rheinaue park for breakfast with SJ's friend Tomas and his parents.

12:00 p.m. - Return to the homestead for nap

1:oo p.m. - Watch "Dirty Dancing" in German on television. One of SJ's mom's favorite films, only slightly less fun auf Deutsch. "Kein mensch putzen Baby auf der Ecke!"

3:00 p.m. - Head over to the cake shop across from our house, where we all picked out pieces of cake to eat. Ordering food in a foreign language is sometimes an interesting experience, sometimes not so interesting. SJ did well with her standard Apfelkuchen (apple cake). I ordered what I thought was chocolate mousse cake, but it ended up being rum mixed with marzipan. I looked up the literal translation of the German word for this type of cake and it is "nasty". Just kidding. But, I couldn't even eat it - it was so awful.

5:00 p.m. - Trip to the Waldau nature preserve and playground. SJ had the chance to feed the deer, and try out about 5-6 different swing sets.

7:00 p.m. - Pick up dinner at Bagel Brothers, and then return home for an evening of Sesame Street.
