On March 22, 2013, I awoke to an Austrian 40 km/hour speed limit sign in our driveway! Happy 40th to me! Reed did an incredible job at congregating nearly every soul we know in town to celebrate with cake and ice cream. Although afternoon cake is a familiar tradition here, the ice cream (“Eis”) to go along with it is 100% American and everyone seemed to really enjoy it…
As Reed has pointed out, it is in km, so really it’s only, like, 24.8!
He ordered a traditional Austrian chocolate cake, and our friend, Dörte made a traditional German birthday cake, on the right.
I must add, in case Joe is reading this… the girls get all of their beauty, inside and out from their Mom. 🙂
All in all, an INCREDIBLE birthday! The only thing missing was all of you friends and family that we are so far away from,
