Although we celebrate our birthdays every year, some are more significant than others. Turning 12 is definitely a big one. Eddy had specific ideas about hpw he wanted to celebrate this birthday. He wanted to go to a "fancy" dinner, so Mom and Eddy went to Vivaldi, a beautiful restaurant in the Schloss Hotel which is a former manor on the edge of Berlin's largest wooded park, the Grunewald.
|At the hotel entrance - no, we did not arrive in that Bentley.|
|The fancy dining room...|
|Fancy drinks ...|
|Fancy chocolate mousse dessert|
|Reason to smile: chestnut mousse with blackberry sauce|
|Relaxing with a full tummy on the lobby couches...|
The birthday celebrations continued on the weekend with bowling, and enjoying the awesome fall weather.
|This is how you throw a strike; look at the form and concentration!|
After working up an appetite with bowling, we headed to Eiershale (Eggshell), our favorite local restaurant. The fall weather was beautiful and we ate alfresco.
|Since it often gets chilly as the sun goes down, German cafes and restaurants have blankets for their customers!|
The day ended at home with cake (Orea ice cream!) and presents.
|Sparkling grape juice and a glass of Prosecco for Mom and Dad to celebrate their accomplishment|
