Pretty Weeds





It must be dandelion season here, because we pass fields like this everywhere. We wanted to catch it on film before the cows devour them all.

Wildlife Park (Animal Adventure)


Each weekend we gear up our kids for an adventure, no matter what is planned. It could be a flea market in Zurich, a walk around our neighborhood or a legitimate trip out of the country. This weekend our kids asked for an "Animal Adventure" so we took them to the Wildlife Reserve just a few minutes from our house.
1) Brooke 2) Goats enjoying the sunshine 3) A fun ride on the Merry-go-round 4) Brooke feeding the deer a feast of dandylions 5) Looking for bats in the cave 6) Andrew standing next to a two-year old bear 7) Andrew and Daddy on the zip-line 8) Our own "little bear" a name Brooke coined due to the ears on his bear coat, but I think it may also have something to do with how he chases everyone around at a warp speed crawl and steals everyone's food) 9) The real bears (Matthew's mentors)

Change of Plans

We have loved our time here in Switzerland so much we've decided to extend our stay. We'll be US bound next summer instead of this one. All of you who said you couldn't make a visit in just one year have no excuse now!! Hopp Schweiz!!

1) For those of you who remember a previous post about our rock, it has since been dubbed "Pride Rock" and is driven by, visited or talked about almost everyday in our family. 2) Our wonderful friends and neighbors, the Hemmerts. Unfortunately they will not be staying another year...it will be a sad goodbye. 3) Brooke is a champion runner 4) Looking out over the Pride Lands 5) Smelling flowers 6) It doesn't happen very often, but Matthew does get sad every once in a while, usually when we forget to feed him or leave him by himself for too long (easily done when he is so content all the time) 7) Mommy and Matthew 8) Swiss Family Shontz 9) Simba pouncing out of the tall grass

10 Months Old



Added to the list this month: 2 teeth, crazy dancing skills, shaking his head, crawling at warp speed and standing. His pediatrician said that braver babies have more bumps and bruises because they challenge themselves more.

My Tree



We pass this tree on our way to church every Sunday. It takes my breath away every time I see it. Look out for more pictures in the future, I'm determined to capture it's greatness on film.
