The place we ate was called Schmidt's Restaurant und Sausage Haus. Like I said, it was in the historic German Village area, and I think I could have walked around there for a few hours just looking at the cool old houses, cute little gardens, and adorable dogs behind the garden fences. At Schmidt's we all opted to get the buffet so that we could sample several types of sausages and German side dishes. Then it was time for what I was most looking forward to, GIANT CREAM PUFFS! Grace and I decided to share a peanut butter fudge cream puff. It was excellent! Mom got the German chocolate cake and my coworker, Randy, got the coconut cream pie. The birthday boy just sampled a little of everything :)
About half way through dinner a 2-man polka band started up playing some fun music with just an accordian and a tuba. They were even wearing lederhosen! Then we spent about 30 minutes walking around the area near the restaurant looking at all those cool houses I was talking about. I would love to come back and visit the German Village again. I bet it would be pretty to see next year when we're up there for Christmas, (hint hint). Well, even though it was just a quick visit, it was great to see Mom, Dad and Grace again. Thanks for driving up to see me you guys!
Now here are a few pics from the night. I only had the camera on my phone, so I apologize for the poor quality.
