Vacation update!

Aloha!

Finally, back from a long week of vacation in Kaiserslautern with our good friend Liway and her family. I just want to say thanks to Liway and her family for the great time. We did enjoy our vacation, going out everyday, bowling, dining out, sightseeing, and chatting. I wish we could spend more time like we planned to, but life is like that. Maybe next time when we can do more sightseeing like cruising the Rhein River by boat. It would be great to see the great landscape and castles along the way.

Anyway, I have so much to tell about our vacation, but so little time to spend right now on the computer. In addition, I’m still a little tired. But as I promised, I want to share some memories of our little vacation. We got there in the late afternoon. After we rested, we prepared for a barbecue and Liway cooked up a storm. Good stuff and good times! After the barbecue, we generally drifted off to bed. The big disappointment was Ruby’s having to go home for a sudden appointment. The next day, after some shopping, James and Ruby departed for home. Then the fun really began. No more babysitting the hubby! I was free from my real baby. It was just us girls Jasmine, Liway, Leera, and me. Fun never was so free!

I finally met my Bisdak friends Malou and Vickie. It was a happy meeting, but not enough time to chat. It also rained a lot that day, but that didn't stop us from meeting and chatting. We did have a wonderful time together window shopping and touring around the mall and grocery stores. I told them next time around would be better; we could spend more time chatting. The return home was miserable. Maria had a bad dream about the trip home and told Ruby. Ruby told Liway and me. We told James. Big mistake! James said, “That’s just superstitious hokey…HUMBUG!” So he drove up to fetch us home with no problems. When we left the next day I nagged him all the way home! “Slow down!” “Don’t pass!” “Drive better!” “Watch out!” The usual stuff we try to teach our hubbies. He said, “You’re afraid of Maria’s dream!” I had to explain that I wasn’t afraid, just being cautious. We had clear sailing most of the way, but after a while we hit a real humdinger of a stau! We sat there for 30 minutes before hubby pulled into the rest area, where we waited another hour and a half. What a day! Anyway, safely back home, I can say it was a long vacation, but definitely fun, enjoyable, and exciting! Of course, I still had a lot of stuff to do around the house when I got home, like make the bed and wash some clothes, etc. James, on the other hand, was miserable. He said he came home from work and fell asleep at the computer every day! He was so tired from his job. I’m glad he’s so patient and loving. He needs a break soon, too. Maybe a little weekend get away just the 3 of us…hmmm. Well I wish I had more time on vacation and more time to tell you about it. Next post will be a little more detailed I think. Maybe these pictures of our time away from home will help describe the fun we had.

I hope that everyone enjoys viewing our pictures. Back in the grind and wishing everyone blessed Wednesday everyone! Thanks for your visits and tags!
