Matt's Birhtday party at the Rattlesnake Saloon

We wore fake mustaches, and listened to Rock'n'Roll. We made a big
splash since we were a large table of obnoxious (mostly) Americans in
a room of reserved German cowboys.

More pics from our recent weekend away

Here is a pic from where we stayed - from early in the morning. The
other 2 are from on top of the mountain - we took the cable car up,
and the others walked up. Una, Jan-Henning, Frank, Anja (who took the
pics), and Elke who was getting a drink.

We Rock on Guitar Hero III

Ok, we are not in to video games, but we do have a Wii, and have a
great time playing Guitar Hero III. Here we are with Matt & Meghan
after putting the kids to sleep. Nicholas still doesn't know what the
Wii is for, and has never seen the Guitars...
