Visitors and Weekend Adventures

It is so good to have family and friends here from Oklahoma. Talk about a breath of fresh air. Having my brother around makes me uber happy. He and I have always had the best relationship and always had so much fun together, I am so blessed for that, and I hope we will always have a close bond.

Yesterday after walking around downtown we walked to the train station, (The Hautbanhof) and picked up one of Sean and Kathleen's friends, Caitlin.
Caitlin lives in Austria at the moment, spending a semester in college there.

After picking up Caitlin we went to the Brauhaus Castel, a German restaurant we frequent often, and had some yummy German food and some Hefeweizen. Then we went to the Irish Pub downtown and listened to some great live music. It was great evening!

Today I am taking it easy. The kids are exploring downtown and checking out all of the shops. Tomorrow we head for Paris bright and early in the morning. Sean and Kathleen have never been to Paris (this is actually Kathleen's first time out of the country,) so I thought Paris would be the perfect place for them to see. There are so many sites and museums, I figure we won't miss a minute and cram everything that we can see into one weekend!

I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Weekend! I look forward to reading all about your holiday weekends. I'll be back soon to post about our weekend adventure. Stay tuned for a ton of pictures, as always.
