Lot’s of the trip worked out so amazingly. We didn’t plan ahead, but here we are in Munich during the first days of the 200th anniversary Oktoberfest.
Getting ready for the opening day parade.
It was a little hard to see, but still lots of fun.
Decorated cookies seem to be part of the Oktoberfest tradition.
“You are sweet”
Lots of carnival rides at Oktoberfest. Emma is in the second row.
Emma didn’t want to leave and she didn’t want to get a picture with Georg.
Neuschwanstein is probably the most famous castle in the world. Emma’s interest in princesses made the visit all the more fun.
Emma had actually been up this hill before in her mom’s tummy. Here her good friend Georg is giving her a much more scenic ride up the hill.
“Mom, when will I have a baby?”
“When you get older and get married.”
“Who am I going to marry?”
“Well who do you want to marry?”
“Sorry, he is already married to me. How about your friend Jack?” (See picture)
(Jack is a little younger than Emma, but they are good friends since his mom and dad are friends of Emma’s mom and dad)
“Oh no, not Jack……….But what about Georg in China?”
“Do you mean Georg in Germany?”
“Yes, Georg in Germany” (See picture)
(As you can see there is a bit of an age difference. Georg stayed with Dana’s family back in the late 90s for one school year as an exchange student. We have visited him in Germany a couple of times and he was so good to Emma. He would make a good husband.)
“When you do have a baby, daddy and I will be a grandpa and a grandma and you will live with your husband.”
“I will miss you and daddy when you are a grandma and grandpa. I will miss you so much.”
At this time real tears came and the conversation was over. At 3.5 years she is already thinking ahead to the future.
