My Weekend in Pictures

We got a visit from my favorite little wee munchkin this weekend - Charlie! Accompanied, of course, by my other favorite person, his momma, Emily, and a whole crew they brought with - Artur and both of Emily's parents.

On Friday, we met up after work to watch the first soccer game of the EM (European Soccer Championships) while enjoying some Mexican food before heading to Prater beer garden for a couple more drinks in the amazing weather that magically appeared just for the weekend (thanks for bringing it with, Em!).

Micha and Charlie meet at last! They were instant friends | Love that belly

We had a long, leisurely brunch at Morgenland on Saturday, and then, since Em's parents had never been to Berlin before, meandered through the different sights of Kreuzberg...


Brunching and baby-cuddling

...First we headed to Victoriapark for a visit to the top of the Kreuzberg...

...where Charlie approved of the bright, fluffy clouds and lovely view of the city...

My favorite little smile

Micha playing tour guide (one of his best skills)

Look at that chubby arm! I love the chub!

...then we made our way down Bergmannstraße to the Markthalle, where Charlie was the only one who ended up getting a treat (can't say I was jealous of his food, though ;)...

More carrots, please!

...then we got back in the cars, me with half the troop in Micha's car - yup, I drove a baby for the first time ever! kind of terrifiying - and him with the other half in a DriveNow car for a quick driving tour of City West (which was easier said than done considering half the streets were closed for the EM and Velothon) and a pit stop at Café am Neuen See in the Tiergarten.

Emily and I prefer to match outfits whenever possible (Also, this may be the only pic of the two of us together this weekend - why do we suck at taking pictures together?!)

Chubby chubby legs!

You can't tell here, but Micha had bird poop as well as baby drool on him by this point. As did I, ridiculously enough.

Charlie did his best to try and steal Micha's watch | Dad's teaching the little man well

Classic expressions

Charlie and Grandma - pretending to give babies beer never gets old (this time it's Grandpa's hand!)

We then rounded out the day by watching the Germany-Portugal game outdoors at Bar Babette. Well, the boys watched. Emily and I chatted and laughed and drank...and chatted some more.

Sadly, they all had to take a train at noon on Sunday to make it back to Munich and Salzburg, so instead of getting another day witht hem, we spent the rest of our weekend lazing around the house - Micha read the news and watched soccer and I read an absurd amount of pages of A Game of Thrones (and I'm still barely halfway through!). Ahhh, nothing better than Sundays at home with the windows open and the sun shining through, let me tell ya.

pssst! Some more pictures from the weekend by Emily over here!
