Bronwen's first theater movie...

I took Bronwen to see One Life, a family friendly animal documentary (no one dies) essentially about life and love in the animal world.  Bronwen was so excited and she made it through the entire movie. Days afterwards she talked about the different facts she had learned from the film, she really paid attention. 
B & I before the movie

The film was part of the international film festival so she got to walk the red carpet too:)

In the theater

So excited she was flapping her wings

We drove 1800 km over the last 6 days from Gent to Frankfurt→Vilseck→ Cheb (Czech Republic)→Stuttgart→Heidelberg→Cologne→Gent. Wheew!! We are exhausted; living like nomads is a lot of work. The drive was so beautiful with all the vibrant Fall colors and fortunately we are blessed with the best “road trip” kids, they really amaze me with how well they travel.

We had a great visit with Steve’s Uncle Walt, Aunt Erika, and cousins Tammi & Ryan. It was my first time meeting all of them, but it certainly won’t be the last time we see each other. It’s nice to know we have family on this side of the pond.

Here are a few pictures in very random order...
