Staying over the weekend in Happy Mountain (Freudenberg), we had great fun attending the 2015 Soap Box Derby. Organised by my friends Outdoor-Event Company “360°“and some local companies 17 teams challenged the parkour and presented their creative self build custom box cars. I was very impressed by the creativity and quality those little cars were build. The entire show, from the team presentation on stage until the final race, was perfectly set up and organised. A great fun for everybody. And everybody really means everybody. One of the 17 teams was a “refuge team” by 7 young refugee from different countries. The team was sponsor by the company “Bäumer“ from Freudenberg and was very welcome by each spectator. They welcomed the team big time, not only for the touching speech they gave. Hopefully there will be another soap box derby 2016.
Lola and myself went on Friday to Happy Mountain, where we visited Lola’s grandparents, my parents, over the weekend. The house remdinded me on the good old times when my brother and I were little. Silas, the son of my brother, stayed also with us until Sunday at the house. Both kids had a lot of fun pointing me out as the clown for the weekend. We get a chance to go into the forest for a little walk to watch and feed the fishes at the fish lake. Lola was happy to see Turka (the dog) and Charly (the cat) back after some weeks. Not sure how the pets felt about it. My feeling is that they have a better and more relaxed time without Lola.
Have fun taking a look at the pictures.
