July Fourth crept up on us this year. Tuesday, the middle of summer in Austria, a holiday that nobody in the world recognizes but Americans. It’s hard sometimes to remember holidays when the stores don’t remind you with shelves full of colored M&Ms. We pulled out the BBQ though, making sure Jake and Eli understand their heritage of burgers, pasta salad and lemonade!
We also took a train ride on the Semmeringbahn, through miles of alpine countryside straight out of Hansel and Gretel.
At the top we had a picnic.
And along with America’s birthday, we also celebrated Mom.
Happy Birthday Mom!!!
