Fantastic February part 2

 These cuties are just hanging out on a beautiful February day at Schloss Eggenberg

 This guy thought it was spring already!

 Bro. Peter Hanselmayer at his 80th birthday party with his siblings. 

 Bro. Hanselmayer and his wife Eva.

 He asked Elder Tew to sing a special German birthday song, (that we had sung to him at his home earlier), before we all ate. Luckily alot of his family sang with us.

This is the Korak family with Grandma Gabi Korak. They are all good friends of ours. Jarom is one of our new YSAs and has been coming early to Institute to help me cook.

Elder Mitchell and Elder Wasden in their matching Hawaiian ties.

Our last District Meeting before Elder Wasden leaves for home.

A picture after Institute.

I took this pic to show the painted wall of this house. How cool is that?

Have you heard of a fresh milk dispenser at the dairy?  We were on our way to a visit and Sister Bishop and Sister Poll saw this and had to try it. They put their coins in and out came the milk, then they poured it into a plastic bottle.

On our way to visit Karin Bauer.

I  love to take pictures of interesting homes while we drive.

This is Sister Strmec (pronounced Stirmek). She actually lives close to us but visits her son and his family in Washington State alot of the time, so we don't know her very well. We visited her last week and she has lots of stories, especially about her joining our church because of her son., When he was only 3 years old, he insisted that she keep inviting the missionaries back and go to church. She is great!

A few of our volley ball players at an activity. John, 3rd from right, newly baptised, was ordained a Priest on Sunday!

We are the Home Teachers for the Walter Family and this time we got to see Melanie with the donkey. He roams around their huge back yard along with the pony, chickens, 3 dogs and 3 cats. He loves to stand there and watch the kids jump on the tramp.

Melanie, Lanita and Klaus Walter. The rest of the family were gone.

I said that I like to take pictures of interesting Austrian homes. These are taken on our drive in the country to get to the Walter's home. The people out here have more land and can build bigger homes.

 Auf Wiedersehen - Till next time.

Lovin those crazy winged eyebrows! That milkomat is pretty funny, I kinda feel like a milkomat somedays. That yellow house is so darling and I think that is pretty much the best picture ever of a girl and her donkey. Ha! I like the story of Sister Strmec...I could see Mabel being a great little three year old missionary too! :)
