We were able to (finally) take the kids out, down the mountain to the little town. There was plenty to do for the afternoon, and we had a great time! I’ll let the pix speak for themselves with some commentary between. I’m not posting most of the scenery pix just yet, that’s enough for a post of it’s own. I’m trying to get it all done before we leave here on Wednesday. Oh, and we did a bit of face painting before we went out and the kids didn’t want to take them off, so that’s why they look like a tiger, princess and magic of pegasus.
The beautiful CC while before her face paint smudged. Thankfully, the day was beautiful and sunny. We had a bbq before leaving, so the kids asked if we could take our pick-nick lunch that we had originally made along for dinner.
Inside the Roman arena. It was our first time in an amphitheater and although it was smaller, it was an interesting experience nevertheless.
Jordan and Cherise had found an amusing way to jump down the seats, I thot it was funny anyway…
And here they come!
One cool thing about Switzerland: there are fountains everywhere! We didn’t even bother with bringing bottled water as the water from the springs tastes so much better anyway! As long as CC’s tongue is, it wasn’t long enough, heh!
Cherise got the hang of it!
Regardless of where we were, there was the wonderful mountain panorama. After getting a drink we followed a path which was soon going up the mountain. Cherise has so much energy and likes to be the one leading up the mountain but as we went she suddenly stopped and burst into tears! I followed her outstretched arm and was dismayed to see something pink peeking out of the leaves and branches about 6-7 meters down the side of the mountain. She had lost her shoe and was now crying cause she thot it was lost. Brave Jo rescued it and we proceeded back down on our way for dinner.

On the way up to the fort. The mountain was covered in vineyards and the little steps are to get into them easily. I think that face is a classic!
The fort was very interesting, and though the tower was closed by the time we got there, we still saw the outside of the main building and had dinner in the courtyard. The view was amazing and the kids and Jo walked along the outer wall as well.
Cherise fit nicely in the cannon!
CC got this good pic of the sunset and Jo looking good and relaxed 😀
