In the Spring an invitation arrived from Germany for a wedding...
Eva Block was getting married to Matthias Schwab!
We booked a ticket and flew to Europe for this
And much happened!
& NORBERT HOSTED DINNERS EARLY IN THE WEEK
We had some time to visit wineries and see some sights before the wedding.
CLICK HERE TO THAT TRAVEL-LOG...
Two days before the wedding, there was a major party in Rodgau...but we
were in Alsace.
The day before the wedding, we arrived at Gaby & Norbert's for the Friday
The table was set...now all we needed was the guests and "guests of
honor," the soon-to-be-newlyweds.
Gaby's mom, Bea and Alexia's Mom, Eileen...
Meanwhile, the Champagne was chilling...
Eva & Matthias.
Claudia, Eileen, Alexia und Die Eva.
Much good food and good wine awaited...
A Gelber Muskateller and a famous Riesling.
A couple of kinds of fish, grilled veggies, panzanella salad and a lovely
lentil salad paired handsomely with the Heymann-Lwenstein Schieferterrassen
Alexia and a magnum of Riesling...
A couple of lovers...
Jesper and Juergen.
Leonetti Sangiovese mit the roast pork, etc.
Dane and his crazy Uncle Gerald.
Edith, Jens and Juergen Block.
Eva and Claudia.
Who drinks less Riesling?
But we were not only celebrating the wedding couple, but
also Eileen was celebrating her 50th birthday...
...for the gazillionth time.
Dane and Alanna, experts in cards, presents and birthdays
in general, came to Eileen's aid.
The next morning, Alanna and Dane fed the koi fish
And a nice German breakfast awaited us...
And Eileen had a taste of Nutella.
And then we needed to prepare for the wedding....
