My mom and my aunt had this really nice plan to suprise
me for my birthday (october 22nd). My mom, my sister Patricia, and my
brother-in-law Dave gave me a suprise visit. This was definitly a suprise,
and a very nice one too. It seems they enjoyed themselves here.
Before they visited me though, Fall kicked in. Man
those colors here are awesome. Not to forget; Joe (co-worker) grows mega
Joe's MEGA pumpkin - can you image yourself in the grocery
store with one of these?
Fall shows some awesome colors here!
And the weather is still very nice .... (>20 degrees Celcius)
Just great colors ... for about 2 weeks
Mom, Patricia, and Dave ...
Mall of America - the biggest shopping mall ... with Snoopy
Yep, we don't see these in Holland - The yellow schoolbus
Another custom in the US - Garage sales
Americans can be very "fanatic" in lots of things - even in
the useless ones like voting
Getting served at your car ... jummie :P
Dave's favorite: Farms - they look way different than the Dutch
Another favorite of Dave: American trucks ...
Allthough this classic firetruck looks pretty cool too ...
And another typical thing: the sigar indian - pretty big dude!
Patricia and Dave in my aunt's backyard ...
Cool view,... thanks guys for the cool
visit! I really enjoyed it!
Stillwater - a "typical" view of a mainstreet in a town
Patricia and Dave liked my Jeep too
Something they missed - The wild turkeys
running around in my front yard ...
Some humor: This tennisball is having
fun - and Puck can't reach ...
... The first snow ... and cold too
... today is -25 degrees Celcius ... brrr!
skying, crosscountry skying:
10 minutes from my home - TrollHaugen,
About 20 minutes from my home - Wild
But it's also the weather for doing
some snowmobiling - so I bought this one!
I haven't had a chance to use it yet (obviously
otherwise I would be writing this in the hospital)
