Summer Holiday 2011

Breaking up the long drive to Switzerland, we spent Monday and Tuesday at Disneyland Paris

Beach and boat playgrounds at the Zurichsee

Baar Pool
We hit Switzerland right during their end of summer heat wave and spent a little time almost every day (including my birthday) at our favorite pool

Knonau (next two collages as well)
Parks, playgrounds, clock tower, the stream, the soccer field and visiting old friends.  We spent more than a few days reliving our old fairy tale life in this little town we loved so much

Back to one of our favorite mountain spots.  Funny, I was pregnant with Will the last time we visited this mountain

More Knonau:  Pride Rock 
(Added bonuses: Matthew has perfected peeing in the bushes on this trip...that little white bum was too cute not to capture, a few times!)  Also, Will has learned "thumbs up" but only puts his thumb up a quarter of the time)

Flying children 

Zug & The Zugersee
(Can you tell in the top right I am a little paranoid now when we feed the ducks?  See below post re: Andrew swimming with fish) 

Last stop to break up the drive back to England:  Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany

Feeding Ducks

We saved our bread scraps for nearly two weeks in preparation to feed the ducks.  We arrived right at dinner time and received quite a gathering (including some new babies), until Andrew decided to fall headfirst into the duck pond and scare them all away.  Initial shock and tears turned into laughter and even boasting the following day.  "I fell into a duck pond and talked to the fish and had to wear Daddy's shirt!"  Luckily, the pond was only a few feet deep and Anthony was quick to fish out our little guy!
