A couple of weeks ago, we had a very fun little adventure!
We spent 4 days in Zermatt.
Where is Zermatt, you say?
It's in Switzerland.  
It is the city where you can see 
the famous mountain - The Matterhorn.  

Switzerland is also where Chad spent 2 years of his life,
proclaiming the gospel!
(Really rough place to spend your mission, I know...)

But, no, unfortunately we did not fly across the Atlantic.
We hopped in the car for a short 1 1/2 hour 
scenic drive up the canyon, because 
Zermatt is also located in Midway, Utah.
Imagine that!
A Swiss city -right here in Utah!

But, it sure felt like we were back in Europe.
Quiet countryside...
Beautiful buildings all around...

A lovely place to sit and enjoy a nice cup 
of hot chocolate and a delicious pastry, or 2.

You could even take a ride
on the carousal, if you so desired!

Our Swiss Chalet style hotel was beautiful. 

The decor was authentic Switzerland.
So much fun for 2 people who 
have such a love for that land!

Life is more simple there.
Slower.  Peaceful.  Amazing.

Anyone up for a game of giant chess?

How about shuffleboard?
(I want a re-match Chad!)

We love to travel!
We love experiencing new cultures.
We want to visit everyplace listed on this sign.  

Hey, 5 out of 16 ain't bad!  
Looks like I better get planning our next trip!
New York anyone?
Even though the real Zermatt is
over 5,000 miles away, it felt like we were really there again.  
So, if you're in the mood for experiencing Europe, 
and you don't want to cross the Atlantic, 
then Midway is the place for you!

WOW! When I listened very closely and quietly, I actually heard someone yodeling! What a neat thing that you got to do together.

How fun! I didn't know they had all that up there. It is such a beautiful city. How romantic!
We need to plan a day that we can see you when we come out. I can't believe how fast it is coming.
We miss and love you guys!
