Have a sunny weekend!

Good morning! It is a rainy, grey, damp morning here in Ferney, so I thought I'd share some pictures from the beautiful, sunny, warm day we had here yesterday. I wore a light jacket and scarf and was more than comfortable trapsing around the streets, garden roads and alleys of this pretty little town that we will call home for the next 3 months. I wish I could have bottled up the sights and smells from yesterday, because it was just so wonderful and peaceful. Today the mountains have completely gone back into hiding like stealth ninjas who will remain invisible until they are ready to strike again, but it's not like I'm going anywhere anytime soon, so I've got time to kill...your move Jura!
BT-dubbs: Can anyone remember the last time they saw a bunch of kiddos playing a game of tag? Because I honestly cannot. The kids in our building were outside playing tag, riding bikes, making up games, playing soccer and jumping in puddles (cliche but adorable) for hours yesterday. I haven't seen one kiddo with a cell phone/gaming system/high-tech ipod/electronic toy since we've gotten here, and it's been so refreshing. Viva la imagination! Made me smile. :)

  1. Don't be surprised when you see a kid on a unicycle. The only time I had seen that before living in Germany was at the circus. Europeans, in general, thoroughly enjoy the out doors. It probably works in their favor, since they get taxed on each TV they own.
