Best News Ever!!!

Guess who is coming to visit me?!?! MY PARENTS!!!! Originally my parents were going to come visit us in Germany in October but when Captain Jack got sick they had to put their plans on hold. Well, we all know how that story goes so now they are able to come! And guess when they will be here?? A week from Saturday!! I can't believe they will be here in 9 days!! It is the best news I have had in a long time. And since my friend Lindsay is here now it is like my "run thru" as a hostess. I'm getting all the practice I need and learning the best places to take guests. Lindsay will be here until Tuesday and then my parents arrive Saturday. Just enough time to clean things up and get things organized!! I literally CANNOT wait to see them! It is so hard being away from home! And yes, I realize I am using a lot of exclamation marks but that is how I feel about them coming to visit!

Yesterday Lindsay and I had a blast in Heidelberg. The weather here has been fantastic this week and I feel like we have been really lucky. I just hope it holds another week for my parents. Here are just a couple of pictures from Heidelberg.Today, with the weather being stunning and all, we woke up early and went on the Rhein River Cruise. We got on the boat in Rudesheim and cruised up to St. Goar. I have never seen so many castles in my whole life! Every bend around the river had another castle and they were truly amazing to see. I am definitely going to take my parents next weekend. It was a great day and I'm even a little sun burned! Here is where we boarded........and now for the castle montage!And don't worry, there are even more castles in case you were jonesing for some castles!Whew!! I have even more pictures but seriously, don't y'all get the point!? All and all it was a great day even though I lost my favorite Master's sunvisor. I'm sort of sad about that but at least I have one in pink too! If anyone goes to the Master's next year I really need a new one!!

I am not sure what we are going to do tomorrow but I'm sure it will be fun no matter what it is! The weather isn't supposed to be very nice but since the forecast for Munich on Saturday is 68 and sunny, we will take a day of rain. I can't wait for Oktoberfest! There are going to be some great pictures from that event so definitely stay tuned. I'm also nearing my 200th post so I'm trying to think of a really fun giveaway! Hope everyone is having a good day!
