Great fun today at Knoebels.  I especially love all their flowers.  Of course Oma and Opa are exhausted.  Not Ava though....even when we got home after she kept going on the playground and skating on her board.

Camping at J&D's and a visit to Deb & Puds

It was pouring when we arrived Sunday afternoon. The next day was great weather.  We took Kia for her hair cut and when shopping for some groceries and 'stuff'.
The afternoon was just a little R&R. Ava did some skate boarding and went to the pool.  
Today we went to Deb and Pud's.  We had a nice time, as always.  Great friends!  Ava enjoyed playing with Aiden and Bree in their pool.

49 years

49 years ago on July 28th Peter and I got married in Germany.  It was at the justice of peace in Sahlenburg which is a part of the town Cuxhaven.  A week later, we had a church wedding with all the hoopla.  Thing was, it was a double wedding with my brother and his bride on August 4th.  We don't consider August 4th our anniversary, because we legally married July 28th 1967.
So, to make a long story short, we didn't do anything on our anniversary day, instead we planned of having a lobster dinner in Cape May.  So today we went there and it was beautiful!  It was delicious!

Tammy's 48th Birthday

48 years ago, after 18 hours of labor Tamara got pulled out....literally!  Stubborn as she was, she didn't want to come out on her own and they used vacuum extraction.  Ventouse, also known as vacuum-assisted vaginal delivery or vacuum extraction (VE), is a method to assist delivery of a baby using a vacuum device. It is used in the second stage of labor if it has not progressed adequately. It may be an alternative to a forceps delivery and cesarean section.

Her head had this huge bump and I was very worried that it would stay like that.  However, the doctor assured me that by the time she is a year old, it'll be back to normal.
Anyway, he 48th birthday party was very nice.  The food was awesome and the cake....all I have to say is WOW!  Dan made an ice cream cake to die for.  I mean it, it was so delicious, even better than Carvel or Dairy Queen!

New York City - most people don't like to spend a day in the city, but I love it. There is something about the city that draws me back that I can not explain.  I only know when I am there, I feel home.
Today I went to see a friend that I haven seen in 10 years.  Friedel came with her daughter Sabine and granddaughter Julia. We took the ferry to Staten Island and hopped right back on the next one back. Then we went to B&H photo. What a super store!  So amazing.
After that Lunch at TGIFs and Macy's.  We said our good byes and went our way, to the Port Authority but not with a quick stop at Time Square. Today was the fist time ever that I saw the famous naked cowboy and.... naked girls too.  Too funny!
