Opa and Oma’s Visit

hzl200708150001.jpg14 -18th August 2007

Opa and Oma came to visit us. It’s really good to see them again.

On Wednesday, we were invited to Bavaria Park – an entertainment/theme park which isn’t very far from our place. Unfortunately, it was a holiday here in Bavaria, so they had a full house. We didn’t get to do much without being in a very long queue.

hzl200708150005.jpgAfter much persuasion from me -read:crying- we did hop onto a few merry-go-rounds and rides.

hzl200708150018.jpgI loved the ride so much that I dragged Mommy to come with me for the next ride.

hzl200708160004.jpgThe next day we took them around Freising. There isn’t much to see here, so we went to Munich Airport.

I looove riding these and Opa and Oma spoilt me.


hzl200708170084.jpgOn Friday we went to Munich City. First stop was the Residence Museum. There, I met a really nice girl from Spain; or she found me, but we were hooked from then on. Suddenly the visit became so interesting. The girl’s name is Elia (sp). We were having fun running around and cried when we parted. Papa did invite them over, but they didn’t have much time.

hzl200708180094.jpg On Saturday, opa and oma wanted to have a look at the city again. We have other chores to do, so we met later in the evening. The next day opa and oma went back to Belgium. It was a long ride and mind you my opa isn’t the youngest anymore. He is 74. We are so grateful that they came and hope they had a good time as much as we did.

My Top Songs

A close-up8th August 2007

When I ain’t busy coloring or photographing, I bug mommy; and papi too, to sing songs from A Child’s Treasury of Nursery Rhyme book. I just love the songs from that book. BTW.: By the look of the book, one could see that it´s heavily used. Worth every cent! Some of the songs I can sing them myself. Mommy would ROFL when she hears that, but papa has been very supportive and was able to maintain himself.

So, here is my list – if Mommy doesn´t get it all mixed up or forget a few of them. Some of them are not from that book.

  1. Goosey Gander
  2. Wee Willie Winkie
  3. Humpty Dumpty
  4. Rock-a-bye Baby
  5. Papaku Pulang –malay nursery song
  6. Jack and Jill or I call it Jack and Girl
  7. Sing a Song of Sixpence
  8. Mary Had a Little Lamb
  9. Grand Old Duke of York
  10. Old King Cole
  11. Hush Little Baby or I say Goat Runs Away
  12. Diddle, Diddle, Dumpling, My Son John or Trousers On
  13. I Saw You in The Orchard
  14. Baa, Baa Black Sheep
  15. Georgie Porgie
  16. Pease Porridge Hot
  17. Frère Jacques – I can sing and mix this w the English version Brother John
  18. Ride a Cock Horse to Banbury Cross
  19. Ring a Ring o’ Roses
  20. Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
  21. Alle Meine Entchen – german nursery rhyme
  22. Hot Cross Bun

  26. KIKA Anniversary Song

My parents are contemplating the career path I would take when I grow up. Maybe I would be a great photographer like Ansel Adam and the like?

I did finish one roll film with this camera. However, not long after that the camera fell apart. Mommy was a bit sentimental about it; it was her first camera. She hid it somewhere later.

Trausnitz Castle

hzl200707290007.jpg29th July 2007

Today papa took us for a sunday walk to Trausnitz Castle in the town of Landshut, which is about a half hour from us. It was nice.


Afterward, we went to the small animal park close to the castle. They have herd of goats and deers there, which people can feed. It was hard to believe what people try to feed them -not only grass, fruits and vegie. Some people gave these poor animals bread, cookies and even croissant. We just couldn’t understand this. Hopefully these animals don’t get stomach ache later.
