It was snowing when I woke up this morning, but for the most part, Spring has Sprung.

A friend of ours who has been working as a nanny the last year asked us if she could spend the weekend at our place and then offered to watch the kids.  Yahooey!  Keith and I were excited to take advantage of her offer and yet weren't sure where to go.  Milan is just three hours from Bern and because of our train passes, it was inexpensive to get there.  We left Friday around noon and didn't get home until late Sunday.  Milan is a pretty big city and we saw a lot of it considering we only had two days.
