Today we went skiing on the Titlis. We also did silly pictures. The snow was great! We got to ski with Rolfe. It was fun!
Skiing on Stands.
My great grandfather, Kobi, skiing from Titlis.
We found old pictures of our family. My great grandfather was an athlete. My family lived in Engelberg for many generations.
Omi, we did walk across the wooden bridge.
Dad, my favorite part in Luzern was a very fancy chocolate shop with special homemade chocolates.
Swiss Ski School, Ski instructor/coach, Rolf Hallenbarter.
We skied with coach Rolf. It was very fun. He said, "We can have dessert at the meringue turn." We cooked our own meat fondue. From the gondola we can see our house.
The weather is so-so today. We skied, but it was really hard to see. It snowed at the end of the day.
It is really nice here. I am having as much fun as you would. I love to go up on the Titlis in the ice cave and want to go again to take funny dress up pictures.
Be home the 13th.
The money is Swiss Francs. There is CHF188.85 in the photo.
I have had a lot of fun with Eva.
Sorry girls we are not able to reply to the "comments," because "reply" button is not working.
Thank you, the swings are super small. It is kind of cool, because we wait for a bus to take us to the ski station and play at the playground in the park.
We rode the train. We went to Luzern.
We went on the old wooden bridge that burned. The bridge had a torture chamber in the octagonal water tower. The bridge was built in 1333. It is the oldest wooden, covered bridge in Europe.

No rock climbing. They have outdoor options in the summer, but we don't have time to do indoor option now. There is a climbing gym in the Sport Center.
Yes, we are downhill skiing a lot, except today and yesterday we tried, but the it was too windy and closed.
The fire torches were not hot, but really fun and special. We wanted to do it again, but our friend said no, it was something to experience and remember for this time in our life.
The restaurant with the barn we went into for fondue was Restaurant Fluhmatt.
We were not told any names for the lambs by the farmer. Maybe they have not named them yet.
The lambs were really dirty, soft, and fluffy.
We think there were around 18 sheep and lambs.
Parker, wants to bring everyone a little piece of wrapped chocolate to take home from school. Is it possible?
It is fun skiing in Switzerland. This day we go up on the Titlis.
First we played in the playground. Then I went to the Titlis. I felt scared on the Titlis bridge, but it was fun. I could see a long way. Next we went into the ice cave. Last we skied all the way down.
Swiss money is different. We had a lesson about Swiss Francs. There is braille on the bills and some coins that are worth five, two, and one Francs.
