Luckily, Katrin took LOTS of pictures because I didn't...oops!
We got to show them around some of our favorite places, freshen up on our little German that we know, and reminisce of times we had in Germany! It brought back such good memories having them be here with us and we will never forget them, nor our time in Germany!
It was their first time in AMERICA!
Salt Lake Temple
The lovely Gardener Village (We did a LOT of shopping...and they did a LOT of buying)
So, Colton is REALLY shy. Like he hides if someone looks at him. However, the morning he saw Katrin he reached up for her to hold him. I thought that was kind of interesting that he remembered her.
He goes off and on doing his squinty-eyed-cheesy grin...right now he is on.
Basti likes the NBA, knows all the players, etc. Too bad there wasn't a game, but we did get a tour of where the JAZZ play.
We also went and looked at houses (since they are few and far between in Germany). I'm not talking about just regular old houses, MASSIVE houses. Some of them it doesn't even look like it is one house. Anyway, Carli works for someone who lives up there, and they have a beautiful home. I'm not going to post EVERYTHING in their house..just the girls bathroom.
Cutest thing ever?!?!? And this picture doesn't even show how dang cute it really is!
Colty and his new girlfriend
Katrin and Basti got their first horse ride....Colton got his first horse ride ALONE...
We went down by the water at Matt's parents and Colton couldn't resist getting in, so we stripped his clothes off and let him have at it...
The next day we got to go the lake for a little boating and tubing...another first for Colty. Luckily--his Aunt Annie held him-- I saw a few smiles coming from him!
After about 30 seconds on the tube, Basti fell off, and the water was FREEZING!! It took a couple of hours to get them back on it ;)
We then headed up to West Yellowstone/Jackson Hole Wyoming. It was a long day being in the car, but they got to see a lot of fun stuff!
And of course we had to stop and see good old ISU.
I didn't get the pictures from the last few days...but the fun continued. I think their general idea of America was that everything is BIG!
They just left yesterday, and I really really really hope Matt and I can figure out a way to get back to Germany in the next couple of years!
Hope they made it home safe....we miss you guys!
