Photos of the trip to Germany and Austria 2010; Mom and Dad and all 4 kids & spouses & 3 grandchildren convened in Kirchberg, Tirol, Austria ... also and the extended Koeniger family - Rainer's brothers and their wives and children (grand total of # of grandchildren: 7, between the ages of 1 and 10) and their mother and their mother's sisters-in-law on both sides and more people whom I'm forgetting (my apologies). The event that brought us all to Austria was the June 5 baptism of Liam, Kathi and Rainer's one-year old boy, performed by Uncle Gerhard in Kirchberg, a small village in Tirol in the alps in Austria. Kirchberg is about an hour and a half from Salzburg and about an hour and a half from Munich, where Kathi and Rainer now live.
Linda's husband Gary is working on the NOAA cleanup effort in his capacity as NOAA scientist studying fish populations in the Gulf of Mexico and he could not make the trip but he was there in spirit.
Here are the top 12 pictures out of (hold your hats) the 1,600 (or so) taken by 6 photographers: Mike, Peggie, Marianne, Linda, Kathi and Rainer. Mom's pictures will be added after I get ahold of them - those will be on a separate webpage. If Mali emails any photos those all will be added to the troutlily archive on a separate webpage.
The "Top 12" were arbitrarily determined by Marianne. Your mileage will vary. See the other webpages for what I'm calling "The Grand Compendium of the Top 199 Photos." Those 199 photos are broken up into several webpages for your viewing pleasure. Or shall we say so that it's possible to scan through them without eyes glazing over ...
Most of these pictures were taken by Linda and a couple by Marianne or Kathi.
