Hallo! My name is Kelly. I grew up in New Orleans, LA. I married my husband Billy in Oct 2000 in N.O. We have three children and have moved from Abita, Springs, Louisiana to Stuttgart, Germany. This is something we have dreamed about and it is our first expat experience. I hope everyone enjoys reading about our adventures because I am very excited to share.

Ludwigsburg Pumpkin Festival
We made it to the world's largest pumpkin festival in Ludwigsburg today. Was neat to see all the statues made of pumpkins and the gardens at the palace were beautiful. This years theme was sports so as you will see all of the pumpkin statues are different sports.....basketball, skiing, boxing, swimming and many more. I've never seen so many pumpkins in my life.
We were thinking "wow, look at all these different pumpkins", then you hit a section that has every pumpkin there and it tells you where the particular pumpkin is from. 98% of the pumpkins were from the good ole U S of A. I've never seen half of them:)
All the food was made from pumpkin:/ it all sounded great but was kind of a let down. Pumpkin fries, pumpkin burgers, pumpkin wine, pumpkin spaghetti, pumpkin quiche, pumpkin soup, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin hash browns, pumpkin popcorn, pumpkin bread and who knows what else. The taste of it all was pretty disappointing, the best things were the pumpkin wine and pumpkin soup.
Blake is asking to go back but I do not see a need. It was neat to see but once was enough.
