Yea for having friends in town!!! I have someone to play with all week! My friend Lindsay got in town on Friday morning and surprisingly I had ZERO problem picking her up at the airport. Somehow I parked and walked thru the door and was right by the door that she walked out of. This never happens to me and I was pleasantly surprised that it went well! After fetching her at the airport we came home and I got to give my first official tour of our house! We met Deaner for lunch and then after work we went down to the river and the winegarten. For some reason it was closed when we got there!! I was so disappointed but the beer garten next door was open so we simply changed our plans! The above picture is of Lindsay and me in front of the beer garten. After enjoying some beers we headed home where we ate some excellent (if I do say so myself) enchiladas out on the patio. Deaner and I tried on all the presents that Linsday bought us and I can't say I am fearing the cold weather anymore!!Not with these neck warmers and hats! Thanks Lindsay!! Saturday was a pretty day so we headed to a little town just North of our town. We took the train to Assmannhausen.....and walked to the Neiderwald, which is this really neat monument on the Rhein River. You take a gondola up into the vineyards and then a 30 minute walk to the monument.We had a great time and had lunch in a little german biergarten and then did some shopping. Lindsay bought a cute little coo-coo clock and some Christmas ornaments. Deaner bought me a beautful Christmas thing that I don't know the name of!! It is one of those things that you light the candles on it and the Christmas scene spins around from the heat of the candles? I'll have to take a picture of it! I really wanted this.....but decided against in! :) I did like the yarn braides though! Saturday night we watched some fooball until LATE in the evening so we slept in late on Sunday. After lunch at the PX on Sunday we went to the little town of Konigstein to visit the castle ruins that remain there. Unfortunately right when we got there it started pouring raining. Thankfully after standing in an ancient tunnel for an hour, the weather clear up and we were able to get some pictures taken!See Deaner in the picture above?? It has been a fun past few days! Today Linsday and I went to downtown Wiesbaden to eat lunch and walk around. She bought one of the biggest bags of gummy bears I have ever seen and I am pretty jealous of them! Now we are home watching Days of Our Lives before we head down to the winegarten! Hopefully today it will be open! I'll post more pictures tomorrow! We are heading to Oktoberfest this weekend and I can't wait to experience it firsthand! I'll try and keep up my posting this week! Hope everyone is having a good Monday!
