Circus in Vienna

We got some “free” tickets to the Circus the other day. Two free adult tickets for a Tuesday afternoon. We thought it must be a promotional thing to generate interest for the Circus, because not that many people could take an afternoon off work on a random Tuesday to go to the Circus. So we…

Windy Park Day

One windy day, the rain took a break and Chris wanted to try out the kite again. I thought maybe it was too windy, but I don’t know how to fly a kite, so I went along with the plan…Oliver was so excited about the kite, he decided to carry it to the park all…

More Momo!

Oliver hates being covered in the “plastic bubble” as we affectionatly call the stroller rain cover. He always pulls it off, so we had to strap it to the stroller to keep him inside. But we found a way out through the air vents. I guess he likes to feel the rain on his face!…

Aquarium

For the past solid week and a half it has been raining, and we have spent WAY too much time inside the apartment. So we decided to meet some friends at the aquarium last week. It was so fun to get out and see all the fish!First of all, I have never posted a picture…

Thoughts…

I don’t usually use my blog to share my personal thoughts on life and its experiences. Usually I am a rather private person and don’t enjoy having my words as a spotlight, I would prefer for people to see my beautiful children and the fun that we have together. But recently a woman I went…

Teach your children well… how to eat on 1.77 per day

I saw an article about feeding a family on $66 per week, which is the smallest allotment for food stamps for a family of 4. A food editor, restaurant owner, and food network TV star all had a hard time staying in the budget–I felt like I could do it without eating Corn Flakes and…

Memories from a General Conference

We had a huge crowd over for general conference. Amy and Amanda were visiting, the elders (Elder Hoehne and Elder Boyer) came over with our friend Livinus, and Chris went over to Alfin’s house to wake him up so he wouldn’t miss out on conference. Luckily for Ian, he was over at Alfin’s house so…

The Berry Park

We have been having nice spring weather the last couple weeks (until yesterday when the rain came back…) so we have been spending a lot of time at the different parks near our house. When Chris is working I usually tell Elora we need to head to one of the smaller, closer parks so that…

Wiener Wanderung und Erdbeeren Topfenknödel

The weather has been really nice. The Vienna newspapers attribute the ash cloud in the atmosphere from the Iceland Volcano as making the weather about 10 degrees cooler this time of year. Either that or sunspots. We invited some friends over last week for a walk in the park. Fortunately, we live near the woods,…
