Oktoberfest in Schwetzingen

I may have already mentioned how great our new neighbors are in a recent post. But you don't have to take my word for it, a proof point instead.

Oktoberfest has begun in München! Don't know what Oktoberfest is? You poor thing, follow this link to Wikipedia.

We are about 5 hours away from Munich which might as well be the other side of the world for us these days. Thankfully our neighbors decided to bring Oktoberfest to Schwetzingen. For brunch. Including Oktoberfest appropriate massive one liter (or 34 ounce) beers.

These people are our type of people.

And they invited us!

We may have been a little surprised by the liter beers. For a second.

Along with the beer, there was quite the buffet spread. Yummy! Since the party started right at PJ's nap time, we both got to eat our food warm. In case you don't happen to have a toddler at home, warm food during a party is pretty darn cool for parents.

Weisswurst, Fleischkäse, cake. What more could you want?

I have no idea what this should be but it looked pretty nifty. Anyone know what it might be?

We must have sat at the table for hours, chatting, listening, laughing. The table was mixed and stories and jokes flew in every direction and everyone was included.

Then PJ woke up and got into the groove with a PJ sized pretzel. The kid is smart: who doesn't love a good pretzel?

When the Mr. had enjoyed enough beer, PJ enough pretzels and admiration from the entire party, and I got enough cake, we all toddled home. The Mr. promptly took a three hour nap (might be a little jealous about that one) and PJ started practicing to be a waiter at Oktoberfest 2030.

The real waiters and maids must be able to carry 10 loaded one liter beer mugs. I have no idea how they do that. Maybe they start with three sippy cups.
