Our Trip Part 5

For the last leg of our trip we went to New York city to see Alan's family. We had a second dedication there for his family. It was done at a church I attended when I was living and working in NJ. We had fun visiting with family and friends. We got to meet a new niece and we were able to accomplish getting Alaina's name changed. Alan got to have some real New York pizza and I have to admit it was good! We enjoyed going to diners again and it's always fun to be in a big city. I don't seem to have any pictures from that, but I think Alaina's god mother is sending some that she took. If that's so and she does, I will post them for you to see. After arriving back in Germany, we were exhausted and then discovered that we had a flat tire. So, poor Alan had to change the tire, tired as he was, and then we drove back home. We were glad to get home. Alaina had wet through two outfits and was teething. Then there was the next morning.

So, her name is officially Alaina? My name book says Gaelic meaning "little rock" or Old German meaning "precious". Both are good meanings. Of course, if she is a precious, little rock, she must be a gem.

It has been a lot of fun to read about your family's trip and see all the pictures! Alaina is so cute, and all the pictures are great. I'm glad you guys got back to Germany safely, but I'm sorry about the flat tire and your exhaustion. We've flown from Alaska to Texas before, and that was a horrid flight, but I can't even imagine the jet-lag you guys must have had.
I hope you liked the shortbread! Take care, and God bless you all!
