Today we are going to the Berlin Tierpark. The Tierpark is the former East German Zoo, and one of the larger Zoological Gardens in Germany. They have a large breeding program for many animals, but especially elephants. Since I love elephants, going to see them is always enjoyable.

Yesterday I spent time playing auto’s with Uschi’s grandson, Anton! He is such a sweet, loving child and so much fun to be with.

This was taken at coffee time. He had juice and cookies!

Then we went off to the large grocery store, to buy all the things we would need for the next few days. Anton joined us and that was even better!

He got to ride in the children’s toy machine’s, and this made him very happy.

Then, while Uschi prepared dinner, Anton, Volker and I played auto’s! Anton loves his cars, but he was especially nice to me and allowed me to play with them too!

Anneliese is doing well. She woke me at 5:30 this morning. While I am sitting here writing my blog, wide awake, she has gone back to sleep!

I can hear the neighbor’s as they prepare for their day at work, or their walk to the local bakery for the morning bread! Oh, what a joy that has been! Freshly baked, delicious, crusty bread!

Yesterday we picked up some leberwurst and cheese to have for breakfast. I can hardly wait!

I hope everyone is well, and enjoying the summer wherever you are!
