What seems like a lifetime ago, Rand and I were in Bavaria (turns out it was just this past spring). We try to visit southern Germany whenever we can, as my dad and stepmother live there.

On our last trip, by a strange confluence of events, we found ourselves there at the same time as my brother, who was flying back from Romania after shooting a TV show. Together, the three of us headed over (yes, in unison), to visit my father.

The poor, poor man.

Here are 10 pictures from our visit to Munich and the surrounding Bavarian countryside.

  1. My father’s favorite child, Anton. He likes to nibble on toes (the dog, not my dad).

    His eyes just scream, "Take off your socks."

  2. Breakfast, courtesy of my stepmother.

    Carbs, glorious carbs.

  3. My brother and our dad, outside our father’s home.

    I love that my brother and I both inherited our father's scowl.

  4. Village of Garmisch at night.

    Note: it is still too cold to eat outside in Seattle, but people were doing it months ago in Germany.

  5. Creepy gargoyle, downtown Munich.

    Rhinoplasty by erosion.

  6. The flags on the Glockenspiel, downtown Munich.

    Also pictured: the only cloud in the sky that day.

  7. The dorks men in my life.

    I can totally see them starring in some awful buddy cop TV show.

  8. Gnomes! General store, downtown Munich.

    The must reproduce asexually.

  9. Self-portrait with Rand, Munich.

    Oversized aviators, FTW.

  10. Pathways in the English Garden, Munich.

    Because a simple fork in the road would have been too easy. (Seriously, I almost had a panic-attack when I saw this.)

     

    (Thanks, Dad, for putting up with the three of us. I know it was … challenging.)

  • Okay, I'll admit: I really like how these came out. I need to get more adventurous with glazes, but I'm so digging this shape.
  • A sneak peek at the photoshoot that @hayleyyoungshotme did this morning at @majesticbaytheatres. We're going to be featured in an issue of Seattle Magazine early next year - about Seattle couples. Super excited. Details and more of shots of amazing hair as we get closer to the publication date.
  • Couldn't see what the barber was doing, but when he said "You want a design?" I replied, "HELL YES" and this happened. I'm delighted with the results.
  • Happy Halloween from the Joker and Harley Quinn, and to hell with the misogynistic manbabies out there.
  • First photo ever tagged of us on Facebook. Circa 12 years ago. Can we talk about how I've aged like an overripe piece of fruit left in the sun, but @randderuiter has only gotten hotter?
  • I call this look "I just ate a whole bunch of Violet Crumble and now I'm about to fall asleep from the sugar crash."
  • New personal slogan.
  • Do we want to leave Italy? No. Did we eat enough pasta to sustain us until next time? Also no.
  • The sky really is that blue. And the towers really are that slanted. #Bologna
