Lauterbrunnen Bike Ride

Yesterday we packed up the kids' bikes and drove to Lauterbrunnen for a ride.  It was a beautiful day and we had a lot of fun.  The little paved trail/road we were on from Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg is nice and flattish, so even Orrin stayed on his bike most of the time which is pretty awesome.


We watched a bunch of base jumpers jump off the cliff.  Well actually we usually only saw them once they opened their parachutes, but we did see one guy actually jump.  Sooo freaky!  A lot of people in Lauterbrunnen want it to be banned, because there have been so many people die doing it.  Crazy people who jump off cliffs.


Then we roasted our wursts and played around for a little bit.

Also, we tortured our children, because that's fun.

There's always a smile on Hazel's face when there's a wurst in  her hand.  :)

On the way back we stopped at a playground at a campground, and it had the most wicked tunnel slide I've ever experienced.  The kids (and Brett and I too, actually) all loved it.  Hazel took videos on her camera which I should post, although I'm pretty sure the video won't do it justice.  

We got back to our van just as the rainclouds came in and it got dark and began raining.  When we got home though, it was bright and sunny again.  Yay for sun!
