Samichlaus, Steam Train and Sihlwald

This is one of my favourite advent traditions and I think I just enjoyed it for the last time... Our boys are growing up, but I'm grateful for this last trip.

This year Markus didn't want to come, but Patrick did, so the two of us went. I was a bit unsure as to whether he really still wanted to go, but he really got into the spirit of the thing. He stood wtih the other kids to listen to SamichLaus (who this year took as his public health lecture theme "teeth cleaning!) and then eventually also put his hand up to say his "Spruchli". More on this tradition here.
And then the big bag of treats and the train ride home. We had a lovely afternoon :-)

History of the tradition....
We first went 2013 (with Chris and Drew, Venus and family, Swete Family), then in 2014 (with my parents and Swete family), then just us in 2015 and with Konstantin and Bernadette in 2016. Last year it was just the three of us.
