friday was an eventful day. i not only got TONS accomplished for work, i also managed to slice my finger open with a steak knife while trying to pry a brownie out of the pan.  one of my more brilliant moments. after getting me patched up (which was an ordeal of itself) kyle and i headed to “burger meet” at burgermaster to meet up with his dad for their traditional ‘male’ bonding time.  they were gracious enough to let me tag along.  as most of you know, kyle comes from a vw family.  for years they ALL drove vw’s.  anywho, i digress.  since i’m officially part of the ostlie-clan, i was estactic to be invited to my first ever vw car show.  it was friday and saturday.  each year, burger master at u-village hosts burger-meet.  all these awesome vw’s are shown off….not that i’m a pro or anything (clearly i’m not) but i have found to appreciate the time, energy, sweat and tears that are poured into these puppies.  that and i better get used to it.  we have a 66 bug and 64 21-window van. both need some love.  here’s some sweet photos that pumped us up about the next few years will look like…..

check out the car seat upholstery.  it's sweeet!

other than a strawberry milkshake to appease my swollen and sore finger, i was definitely captivated by trinkets found on and/in these cars.  it was entertainment in and of itself!  in fact, i think i took more shots of those below than i did of the cars!
