Pretty nifty huh? I wonder if he uses this as his primary means of transportation? This morning he parked it outside the bakery for a little breakfast. Maybe next time I see him I will ask for a lift in his backseat.
All is well in the Deaner household today. Evans happily went to school this morning while Mama went and got a massage. What a wonderful way to start the day! Surprisingly enough Evans' teachers reported that he was HYPER all day at school and would not "stay on the rope" when they went on a "field trip". I'm glad that he is starting to show a little pep at school. Maybe now that little girl will think twice before accidentally chucking plastic ponies at Evans' head. As for staying on the rope, I gather that when they go places the kids are supposed to stay in a line holding onto a rope. Well, I could have told them myself that he was never going to do that. I mean, does this look like a child that would stay on the rope when asked?

Therefore, I really should not have been surprised when he started telling me back in March all about the German RenFest that takes place in October in Rudesheim. Much to my dismay the advertisements started popping up right on time around the end of August and you know who had this date on his permanent unalterable calendar immediately. So, this past weekend we finally got to experience the joy of the German RenFest together, as a family of three, braving the cold grey skies, enjoying ourselves throughly.
The afternoon was definitely a success. Drinking beer out of a clay pot can make most things better but this was actually pretty fun. I could eat another deep fried Flammkuchen RIGHT NOW. Deaner got his fill of disgusting things that I would never make for him......

As things have started to get back to normal around here and the weather is slowly growing colder every morning it is nice to look back on our Fall and of all our visitors.
The rest of the week was spent spending time down at our winestand in the afternoons since the days of it being open are numbered. We had great weather for the most part and ate our way through the week. I've tried several new recipes lately that have been hits so I'll be posting those sometime in the next week or two. Since Gannie and Laurie left I've found myself constantly cleaning and picking things up. People normally associate guests with added chores and housework but with these two around my house was looking fantastic and my laundry was always folded (albeit in very weird ways!). The second they were gone Deaner and Evans managed to destroy it in 24 hours. After their Monday departure, Deaner and I were nervous that Evans might be a little out of sorts. Since it was a holiday for D and he wasn't working we drove out to the larger American base about an hour away for some Johnny Rockets and a new bike.
Hurry up already Daddy!
The joy of cycling with no pants has no end. Until you realize that you actually have to pedal a bike to go anywhere. We might still be talking endlessly about the "new bike new bike" but I haven't seen much riding on it since it takes some effort to stretch his feet down to the floor to scoot along. Forget the pedals. Hopefully we will have a chance this weekend to really test it out. And just for the record, the bike was a way bigger hit than the new Cinderella "Diamond Edition" DVD (that cost $30!). This child will take Mufasa and Mufasa's Baby (Simba) any day over singing sewing mice. I can hardly blame him.
I'm off to read and troll Pinterest for new dinner ideas. I have a project up my sleeve for this afternoon that I saw on Pinterest and depending on the outcome, perhaps y'all will hear about it. If it is disastrousit might just stay up my sleeve. Happy Thursday to everyone! God, I love short weeks!

I am not sure why but he loves to let the sleeve of his jacket cover up his right hand. Frankly, it drives me bonkers but even with the sleeves rolled up he still manages to sneak that hand inside his coat. j
We all know that Evans is not the most adventurous little kid so I was not surprised at his hesitance to partake in the bounce house. Deaner tried and tried to force him to enjoy it but he was having none of it. Hardly worth having to take the shoes off and put them back on!
