The Ellis's

We had one day to regroup from our trip to the states and then Thursday morning we met the Ellis's at the train station bright and early.  Leslee, John, and Sarah came to visit for a few days on their way to France.  It was so great to see them!  We dropped their stuff of at our house and then headed to Zermatt.  It was a beautiful day and you could see the Matterhorn perfectly.  We took the Gornergrat up to the highest point where the views were spectacular.  We walked around the cute town of Zermatt, had ice cream, went to the museum, and then headed home.

Friday was a really fun day.  We took the train to Grindlewald and then took the gondola up to First.  We planned on taking the zip line down but the line was too long so we took the tram down to the half way point.  From there we rented scooters and rode them down this beautiful path into town.  I was so glad the zip line didn't work out because I think the scooters were much more fun.                       
From Grindlewald we went to Lauterbrunnen and then Trummelbach Falls.

 Saturday the Ellis's headed off to the Chocolate Factory and Gruyere,
 I headed off to bed.  When they got home they all rode their bikes down to the Aare River and went swimming.

 Sunday we all went to church together, had a great dinner, then spent the afternoon seeing Bern and the Temple.
Monday the kids had their first day of school.  They were so sad to see the Ellis's go, yet they were happy to go to school and they each had a great day.
