We left Calgary at 3:00 and arrived in Amsterdam, had a 4 hour stop over and then boarded again headed to Vienna. 8 hour difference from here to home, Friday we got our car, and drove to Eisenberg, the GPS sent us to where Dean, Ruby, Chels, Chan, Jade and Ruby were staying. We did some visiting, beer tasting, and then headed down the street to our Hotel. We had a big day the 2nd day of our travels, Papa's birthday party!! Everyone in town and surrounding towns came!

Papa and his 2 brothers, Uncle Siegfried, Uncle Willy and Papa

Chan taught the Austrian "kids" how to shotgun

and then the trouble started... the whiskey!!!

lots of different beers here!!

after the party, at 1:30 in the morning... Sigi said he was going to a Buschenshank, we thot he was kidding, but nope! Down the street you could hear one, so me and Dean followed. Ruby and Jade met us, and we met more cousins that were Webers!! So much fun, so many pictures!! But here's a teaser :-)

Dinner and a horse

Years ago, on an anniversary far far away we had Dinner and a Goat. Tonight we had Dinner and a Horse. Except this horse was pleasant and not as angry looking as the goat. A great night filled with memories of goats past.

The met

Sitting at a restaurant that used to be a movie theatre, what a brilliant way to revive a beautiful old movie house- I saw Phantom of the opera here in grade 4 with my dad, we liked the movie so much we stayed twice, the balcony is still here and the movie screen also - and all around tables! So kewl!!!
