Sweet Switzerland

Our spring vacation was a journey to find snow, and so with Europe not too far away, we decided on Switzerland as the place to go. An added bonus is that we have lovely friends who live in Zurich, so we could spend some time with them as well. Dale's mom joined us for the trip, which made it extra wonderful. 

Shallow, perhaps, but I also LOVE that I finally convinced this leggings only girl that she needed some jeans for the trip. We went on a mission to find the world's most comfortable jeans and scored these funky ones. This whole look is so fabulously Euro. 

Zurich is this awesome city with so much outdoor space and nature. We read that Zurich's sister city is Kunming, China, which is Sojo's birth city, and that Kunming had donated a Chinese garden. After tons of walking (love a good walking city!), we found it, and it was the most beautifully perfect, tiny garden. It felt like being transported to China instantly, and I loved Sojo's pride in seeing that this beauty is from her country. Plus, we got to tell her the stories of how she LOVED the Chinese stone lions when she was a baby.

That is so cool. I mean the country, the city, the snow, the Kunming connection, the jeans and oh yeah, that kid. She is the coolest and sweetest kid in the universe.
