A few more things to remember

Sunday we went to Lori's house with the Bell's and had dinner.  Afterwards we pulled taffy, something I had never done before.  It was really fun and the taffy was sooo good.

Tuesday I went walking with a group of ladies around Bern.  Afterwards, the Japanese Ambassador's wife invited us for tea.   She was an amazing person, as so many of these women are that I have met here.  She had studied piano at Juilliard for five years and she played a beautiful piece for us.   The Ambassador's mansion was huge and impressive.

Wednesday, when Josh got home at noon we went to the Ka We De and skated with some friends at the outdoor ice rink.  This is the same place that we swim in the summer and in the winter they freeze the pool and make a huge ice rink.  
The sun came out in the afternoon and it was a beautiful day.

The sun finally came out and the leaves are so pretty right now.
