So when the husband got home from work, we drove to the mall in Dresden to spend some time together and, get this, buy a plane ticket for his brother.
William got to try out his new car seat for the first time!
Yes, that's right. His brother. The one who's lived in California for about 8 years now is coming "home" on "vacation" for about 2.5 months. He basically just needed a break from a lot of stress in his life and is coming here to stay with us and is going to be working with my husband. (He's a German Citizen but has a "Green Card" for the USA.)
Anyhoo. We currently only have a (very) big couch and a another smaller couch that folds down into a bed. So we got him his ticket and then bought a bed and a dresser for him to use. (Side note: Sorry mom for not buying you one when you were here! But, in our defense, Sven will be here a lot longer than you were! haha.) We enjoyed our time shopping together, and then drove to eat dinner. We ate at the place that my husband actually built ("Gasthof Alma Kasper") because their food is VERY good and almost all of the food there is home made. Husband is there a lot for work (tying up loose ends and whatnot) but we still enjoy eating there every now and then.
Saturday morning I got my daily work out in (Day 9 of the 30 Day Shred) while husband took the dog on a walk and bought some fresh bread rolls for breakfast. He works so much so we try to really enjoy our Sunday morning breakfasts together.
After breakfast he got all of the furniture put together and got a text from our friends Falko & Marie asking if we wanted to go to the Dresden Zoo with them. Seeing as we had no other plans, the weather was great, and we hadn't been to the zoo in YEARS (about 16 years for me, and 10 for husband), we decided to join them.
Would you believe that we forgot our camera at home? All these photos I took with my crappy little phone, that's why the quality sucks. Yeah.
Afterwards, we all went out to ice cream to chill and take a break from the sun. It was an unexpected but really nice way to spend our Sunday.
