Meeting our niece and her family in Mainz, Germany

We had a wonderful time with my niece Jeanny and her girls and husband Stephan.  I hadn't seen Jeanny since she was a baby-a little older than Julia.  We broke the ice over ice-cream.

Loving this !

We stayed at the Hyatt Regency-Mainz, right on the Rhein River.  It was a perfect location and a gorgeous hotel!

Jeanny and Stephan treated us to a river boat cruise on the Rhein.  It was a wonderful day!  We went to Rüdeshein across from Bingen.  A perfect day.

Sweet family

Thank you so much, Jeanny and Stephan, for making out time in Mainz so special.  We love you and we are so happy to have this reunion!
