This is miss Hade, patiently waiting at the gate for the plane that will take her to a new country and new adventures <3 (she is smiling because everyone wants to stop and pet her 😉 )
For anyone who does not fly often, when you are waiting for everyone to get on board, it is usually very hot and stuffy (honestly, the whole flight, the air is dry :/ but especially toasty when boarding as everything is not yet engaged) so I always ask for a cup of ice for the Rotties. Usually, I can give the dogs a pice of ice and they will either chomp it or play with it until ready for the next piece. Well, miss Hade I think found out she was riding in first class and decided that “ice service” must be included with the amenities. Instead of taking the ice, she expected us to hold it as she licked it. After we dropped the first one for her, she looked at where it landed on the floor, then looked back at the cup and I swear had this look on her face like, “well, you wasted that one- good thing there is a whole cup of ice. C’on now, you can do it! Hold the next one for me.” 😉 Love my sweet (although slightly spoiled) Spanish Princess 😉
Hade with her cup of ice 😉
Ethan was amused that the cars were covered in sheep skin; Hade could care less about that, she’s just trying to figure out how to climb in Ethan’s lap now that he is sitting 😉 lol
We hung out with some amazing Veterans and Active Duty Service men and women at the Freedom Center where Ethan challenged a couple to some riveting games of scrabble (which he won!) 😉
They had a therapy dog in the Freedom Center too! It was awesome! She made her rounds to say hello to everyone, but then decided to hang out right beside Ethan. <3
What I love about scrabble is that it helps not only with spelling, but math too!! A sneaky way to get a bit of learning mixed in with fun! 😉
Bought this little Lamborghini for Ethan in Italy last year and he takes it with him everywhere <3 It is by far his favorite suitcase! I told him we had to park it for take off 😉
What trip would be complete without ice-cream 😉
This is what happens when you let a 10 year old decide what to order from the rom service menu 😉 Hade did not complain as she got some steak and some Wiener Schnitzel!
This was some fresh egg noodle pasta tossed in a cream sauce with salmon and fresh herbs. Easily one of the best tasting pastas I have ever eaten!! (and that is saying something considering how many times we have been to Italy!!)
Ethan and Hade shared some steak with rice and veggies.
Pene pasta with a arrabbiata sauce- ordered this for myself, but ended up taking half of Ethan’s salmon pasta instead 😉
Hade along with her personal escort, Stanislav, that brought her to Munich, Germany for us <3
Breakfast- I love how important this meal is in Europe. They would think we were mad for having donuts, or bagels, or cereal and calling it breakfast! Ethan did not use to be a seafood fan until he starting tasting real, fresh seafood in Italy and Europe- now he cannot get enough of it! He had some smoked salmon, smoked swordfish, and some fresh shrimp for breakfast! This kid’s too young to realize how spoiled he is 😉 lol
Now THAT is how you should get your honey!!!
The tea is AMAZING!! They have a bar with fresh and dried herbs and blends and you can essentially crate your own blend and then add hot water!
I am not at all an avocado fan, but Miguel cannot get enough of them, so I had to get a photo of this for him to see! Who would have known that you can make a breakfast smoothie out of avocado!
Since we have started raising our own birds (chicken, ducks, turkey, etc.) my kids have become egg connoisseurs 😉 They all refuse to eat anything other than far fresh eggs. Ethan was very pleased with this one and wanted me to take a photo to show his siblings how dark and rich the yolk was 😉
Fresh honey yummmmmm <3
