163: Oktoberfest

Our family celebrations continued on Sunday with a fabulous meal presented by my sister, Melinda. She fixed jaeger schnitzel, spaetzel, potato pancakes, sauerkraut, bratwurst and homemade applesauce. Oh, man, was it good! Her husband Colin has a collection of steins so everyone could enjoy their bier in an appropriate vessel.

We ate and drank and had a great time. Too soon, the travelers had to say their goodbyes, including my brother Greg and his wife, Lori. We managed to get a group photo of the assembled members of the BehrensClan before everyone headed off. The only person missing was my great-nephew Stuart, who was napping at the time.

Can't have too many cooks in this kitchen!

Not everyone is fortunate enough to have such a large and loving family. Our visits with both Roger's and my families have been a high point in our trip, and one of the main reasons that we chose the route we did.  We are blessed, indeed.

It's all good!
