Back to the Blog!

Well, after some serious time away from our blog I decided to push myself back into it. For a while I forgot we even had one until I heard complaints, and then the procrastination was about being overwhelmed with all that there was to catch up on, but I decided it didn't matter. This post will be random and not at all inclusive.

Morgan and I had a great day together on this particular day and took some pics. We had a picnic and all was well. Perfect food, perfect weather, perfect company.

The fourth of July.

Mom serving breakfast at our Ward's yearly 4th of July party.

Dad, Alyssa, and baby Elijah.

Allison, my friend from growing up, got married recently. Here are some pictures from the day. She seemed very happy.

My Parents took Morgan and I to a Nationals game. I don't know if I have ever been to a major league game before, but we had very close seats and it was a fun experience. I think I can enjoy this kind of thing every so often.

I went to Germany for a study abroad program and here are a few pictures and or highlights from my brief trip there:

This is the building I stayed in on the top floor. It had a beautiful view of the town of Steele.

This is the cathedral in Steele, which was really just a stone's throw away. I took this picture from my balcony. It was very much like a dream, but not quite because Morgan wasn't there.

Another view from a different window.

This is the outdoor market/grocery store that was right next door. They sold the most delicious yogurt by a company called movenpick of switzerland.

Squinty-eyed me in kettwig. Not the best picture, but the only picture of me in Germany so I thought I'd include it. I liked this town. It was one of the quaintest, yet bustling towns I went to. I had several people come up to me and speak German in a friendly manner, but I had to tell them I was no good at it. Oh those friendly old folk, they did recommend some good ice cream, and I was able to understand....somewhat.

A place I liked in Kettwig.

This is near the city center of Essen. Essen is a clean and pleasant city to be in. Pretty chill and layed back and 5 different H&M stores within walking distance. I liked the whole feel of it. Even though you were in a city, you didn't feel rushed.

We went to this artist's studio. Her name is Doro Hulder. As you can tell she likes bright colors. She was very friendly and obliging.


At the K21 Museum.

I was rather fond of these photographs of water towers.

Overall, good things to see and experience but better to come home and be with Morgan.
