Guinea Pigs (and other fun) at Oma and Opa’s Place

A few weeks ago Tante Ruth went on vacation so she had Oma and Opa watch the Guinea Pigs (Max and Moritz). Quinnie was elated- this meant she’d get to spend more time with them than usual!

Look at the excitement on Quinnie’s face! Simon snapped this through the kitchen window.

They are careful to form a little fence with their legs so he doesn’t run off

Quinnie doing her “Guinea Pig Pose.” It’s always accompanied by her guinea pig squeak. (She does it near the end of the video above) She cracks me up!

When Ruth got back from her vacation Oma and Opa had a cookout. Opa bought the kids an inflatable pool which was a big hit.

These two (Quinnie and her cousin Maxim) have been having a great time hanging out together lately (especially now that Quinnie’s speaking German). Maxim even asked Oma and Opa if he could come over to their place on the same days that Quinnie is there. I know they both enjoy getting to hang out with a cousin on a regular basis (all of their other cousins live in other countries).

Friedel’s Dad (Simon’s Opa) planted a few cherry trees in their backyard a long time ago and now they’re HUGE. The girls love to pick cherries every time they’re at Oma and Opa’s. They are SO delicious!

The girls love to make these “cherry earrings.”

    Boy, they sure do like those guinea pigs! They are pretty big too! I wonder how long you will be able to hold out before you have them also? love the video of Q about the GP…Oma and Opa have a beautiful yard and it was nice to see a photo of the family and the kids enjoying the pool. Has it been warm there? K so cute with the cherry earrings…love getting the blogs..it’s our way to keep up with your lives now..miss you! Xoxo

    Thanks Oma! Glad you enjoy reading them. Yes- we got lots of sightseeing done! With kids there is hardly any time to relax anyways, so I figure we might as well get out there and see things!

    Friedel and I like to view your posts, Meegan.
    And as some of your life now is closer linked to ours, we get parts of our life posted as well.
    Regarding the shortness of your vacation in bavaria, we think that only Americans (or Asians) can do so much sightseeing in such little time.
    Love
    Oma Marion (and Opa Friedel)
