Then the beer was not served until 12:00. So we stocked up on energy drink, pretzels (Jack was very happy to be eating the Sullivan family staple food again), cheese bread. It was so entertaining to walk around, people watch, and we had a great time meeting Jack's friends and catching up with him.
I loved getting to see Jack in Germany. I miss my famil so much and this put off my home sickness for a couple weeks. We kept saying how neat and how lucky we were to both be living in Europe and meet each other in a different country. We are going to meet up hopefully again this week in Interlaken.
This post is a little long but we had such a great time and want to share our first Oktoberfest experience!
shoulder to shoulder for 2 and 1/2 hours. It got much more packed than this. Jack put his arms up to take a drink and couldn't put them down it was so crowded.
Jack doing the German Squat (what we named his position for the day) He says the more fun he is having the more he sweats. I think he was having a pretty good time!
Here are some videos that show what was really going on.
The crowd signing "Hey Baby, I want to know if you'll be my girl" You wouldn't think it was our first beer from me singing the totally wrong words to the song and my little dance with my beer. So I'm taking the embarrassment to show off the atmosphere!
Hearing Country Roads made us very excited to be in the tent known for tourists. It reminded me of being back at Auburn.
The owner of the Hofbrauhaus leading the welcome toast which was then played through out the day about every 10 minutes. Translation is " I cheers you, I cheers you, I drink because I am happy. One Two Three Super!!"
From the day we arrived in Zurich there have been little things we haven't been able to find here and missed from home. For about a month we added things to our list of things that we wanted. Everything from winter coats, a paper towel holder, new quilt for the bed, corn bread mix, my jewelry box, soup, and many other things we missed. My parents and sister were so sweet and collected and packed everything up for us. Zann gets a good shipping rate through Lufthansa so my dad took the boxes to the airport and they traveled from DC to NY to Frankfurt on Lufthansa Cargo and were at the Zurich airport waiting for us two days after my dad sent them! We were very excited to say the least. Luckily we have our trusty little dolly from IKEA that we lugg stuff around Zurich on. And there was a surprise birthday party in the box including a funfetti cake from Susie. We are very happy to have some of the things we love again and are very excited to know we can get things sent to Zurich cheap and quickly!
We been sooo excited to get these I couldn't wait to open them!
Officially can ski now that I have my ski coat. Now I just need the skis.
YAY!! Corn bread. Its the little things that make us happy!
Zann very excited about his new snacks. Hubby's peanuts
Let the Birthday Party begin!
