My usual topics for this blog are adventures in trying to save money; but occassionally you have to forgo the usual topic and just have a fun day with the family. So is the case of this post.
10 Day Salute to Sausage (and bier).... Since 1961 - an event celebrating German culture and history.
Look here for the History of Wurstfest in New Braunfels, TX
I bought a new hat.... doesn't it look fun? Are my eyes closed? lol It was a beautiful day, so I could be squinting.
A nice young man offered to take our picture. No, I hadn't had too much to drink; I guess I just look a little goofy; which fits in with the jester hat just perfectly. My companion (honey) wore his usual hat... my handsome Bavarian cowboy.
As my son walked around he took this picture and I since it turned out so well; I wanted to include it in our fun day post.
My son tried on my hat. I think he looks very handsome.
It wouldn't be Wurstfest without a little beer... We stuck with the theme and had Warsteiner. I'm not much of a beer drinker; but this was pretty good as long as it was cold... and by the way; its just a myth that German people drink warm beer.
And the food is to die for..... porkchop on a stick (not pictured), brats (not pictured), and a family favorite: funnel cake. Who doesn't love a good funnel cake?
