Rain, snow, cold or hot, this kid loves the outdoors. When you say the words "Do you want to play outside?" his face lights up with so much excitement. Since our eye appointment didn't work out last week we went to the park. It was a perfect sunny day. We pulled up and all he said was "Get out! Get out!" So much fun we didn't want to leave.
We had a few feet of snow before Christmas so we thought it would be fun for Lukas to try out his new skis. Unfortunately he crashed and fractured his shin bone. What a bummer with all of this fun snow to play in. He has been a trooper and maneuvering around quite well.
Second cast and his mode of transportation because he was not allowed to walk on it.
Singing the no walking blues.
3rd cast, for walking.
All of his buddies at school got to sign it. He is so proud of it. Just a few more days then he gets it off. Yipee!
We had never been to Davos since we moved here. It is only an hour away so we finally went and checked it out. Davos is a well known ski resort and the site for the annual World Economic Forum, it also known for holding hockey and ice skating events. It has the highest (elevation) brewery in the world. There wasn't too much snow, but we were able to take a chair lift up to find some. It was a beautiful day.
Hut we stopped at to enjoy some gluhwein.
Watching a hockey practice with Dad.
Coach gave Lukas a hockey puck.
The ride down on the lift.
Inside the ski hut was super cute.
Logan's first ride on a lift.
We had tons of fun. Glad we went. Maybe next time we can go skiing.
Erik and I finally got to hike up the mountain behind our house. We have been up there a couple times before, but only on the Gondola. The top of the Staubern reaches 1751 meters. It took us two hours to get to the top. We ran into our landlord on the way. He told us that he was one who helped build the trail to the top and said it took 16 years. Great hike, steep at times and the weather was gorgeous once we got above the clouds.
Barns along the way. This is where the cows come live for the summer. They also walk along the trail. There are no roads to these barns therefore necessities that can't be carried are delivered via helicopter.
The Rhein Valley
These pieces of would are positioned to avoid avalanche.
We live down under these clouds.
View along the ridge.
There is a house on top that serves food and has rooms to stay in.
