My Parents visit Zurich, finally!

Once I realized that the last time my parents had come to stay was last June, I have been nagging them to visit again :-)

They chose a beautiful, hot summer weekend in Zürich and we all had a ball. We took the boat down the lake, then paddled at the badi and ate ice cream. We celebrated Patrick’s birthday with a teddy bears picnic on the lawn outside and then made pirate costumes!

My Dad spent a lot of time on the floor playing trains, or telling stories. My Mum helped me with the cake. And my poor hubbie revised all weekend for his MBA exams.
