En dejlig uge / A perfect week

Ferien er næsten slut. Det har været en dejlig ferie! Det har været så dejligt at bruge tid med Frikkerne, og selvom der har været arbejde og skole, har vi brugt meget tid sammen alligevel.
Det var ugen, hvor mindste-nevøen blev tævet af sin mor i bordfodbold.

The vacation is almost over. It was a really nice vacation! I have loved spending time with the Frikke's, and although there has been work and school, still we spent a lot of time together.
It was the week when my youngest nephew got beaten by his mother in table football.
Bailey fik sin del af leverpostej, selv om han helt sikkert syntes det var for lidt. Denne gang varede det cirka 4 dage før leverpostejen var væk, men der blev også bare spist varm leverpostej så ofte som muligt! Rugbrødet har holdt lidt længere, men det kan man jo heldigvis spise med andet også.

Bailey got his share of liver paté, although he definitely thought he had too little. This time, the liver paté lasted about 4 days before it was gone, but we did do our best, eating warm liver paté as often as possible! The rye bread is not gone yet, but fortunately, it can be eaten with other stuff as well. 
Doylestown er helt sikkert bygget til biler. Takket være Google Maps på telefonen fandt jeg ud af, at der faktisk kører busser. Problemet var bare, at man skulle gå knap 2 km for at komme hen til bussen. OG det der med fortove er ikke det, der prioriteres højest i Doylestown.
OG for at komme det sidste stykke til busstoppestedet skulle man ned til en butik ad en vej hvor - ta-daa! - fodgængere var forbudt.
Jeg er ikke imponeret......
Men frem og tilbage kom jeg da, med liv og lemmer i behold. Billedet viser iøvrigt et sted, hvor der er en lille å. Fortovet slutter (selvfølgelig) så man skal ud i vejkanten for at gå over.

Doylestown is definitely build for cars. Thanks to Google Maps on my phone, I discovered that there are actually busses. The only problem was, that you had to walk almost 2 km in order to get to the buss. AND that pavements are not the top priority thing in Doylestown.
AND to get the last bit to the bus stop, you needed to go down to a supermarket and the parking lot by following a road were - drum-roll - pedestrians were not allowed.
I am SO not impressed......
But I got there and back, safe and sound. The photo, by the way, shows a place with a little brook. The pavement (obviously) ended, so you need to walk by the side of the road in order to cross.
Det var en uge hvor vi fulgte nevøen til skolebussen (hans storesøster kører selv og møder meget tidligt) og bagefter gik en dejlig tur med hunden. Selv samme hund virkede ret tilfreds med at jeg var hjemme nogle timer, så den ikke skulle ligge og sove helt alene.
For det er jo det, hunde gør! Sover.

It was the week when we walked the nephew to the school bus (his sister drives herself and starts very early) and afterwards took a lovely walk with the dog. The very dog who seemed quite happy with me being at home for a few hours, so that he wasn't alone when sleeping.
Because that is what dogs do! Sleep. 
Fredag aften var vi ude at spise - allesammen undtagen den ældste som er på college i Ann Arbor.
Alle glæder sig til, at min svoger får arbejde i Doylestown og kan flytte over til resten af familien. Det har været dejligt at se den nye by og det nye hus og frem for alt at være sammen med dem. Glæder mig allerede til næste gang.....

On Friday night, we went out for dinner - everybody except the oldest one who is in college in Ann Arbor. Everyone is looking forward to my brother-in-law getting a job in Doylestown so that he can move over there as well full-time.
I loved seeing the new town and the new house, and most of all being with them.
I'm already looking forward to next time......
