She's Baaaaaaaaack!

Our wonderful friend from Germany, Kim, came back for another visit last month.  It's hard to believe that it has been 4 years since she was here the first time, as our foreign exchange student. She's in college now, so she could only stay for 3 weeks, while on break from school.  We are happy with any time we get with her, though, so we packed as much as we could into those 3 weeks!  Here are some highlights from her visit:

Waiting at the international arrival terminal is actually a really fun thing to do.  I love seeing all the reunions of people who obviously haven't seen each other for a while!  Our situation was no different.

Kim got to meet Dutch for the first time.  She had been anticipating this meeting for quite a while!  She treated him like her own little brother, and I'm pretty sure she was smitten.  She helped us take care of him, and they had an awesome time playing together. It was very sad to think about them not seeing each other again for a long time.

We took her to some fun spots around town that were great photo ops.  The BIG signs around Dallas, the Trinity Overlook Park, and the Texas flag on the side of the highway in Grand Prairie made for some good shots!  Other notable activities were visiting the Sprinkles Cupcake ATM and taking a quick roadtrip to Winstar for gambling!

One weekend we took a trip to Austin so she could visit some of her friends who go to college there.  We had a great time shopping, sightseeing, and partying on 6th street. We couldn't let her leave Texas this time without riding a bull!

Last, but not least, she spent a lot of time trying to beat the Texas heat in our pool!

The time definitely flew by, and we are hoping we can take a trip to visit her in her hometown next year. Until then, Auf Wiedersehen!
