Sick in Switzerland

May 20:  After a disappointing and tiring finish to our day yesterday in Lucerne, we were more than a little excited to wake up to this glorious alpine view just outside our cabin in Emmetten, Switzerland.

I woke up early and took a gazillion pictures of the lovely mountainside surroundings...

The kids were fascinated that we looked like we were higher than the clouds sometimes....

<sigh>   isn't it lovely? 

Ellie woke up feeling  ill, so it took a little longer than we would have preferred to get out the door, but I didn't mind the extra time to enjoy the view....

At my dad's suggestion, we drove through Brienz (look for another blogpost on Brienz coming soon)....

and then onto Interlaken.

Interlaken was much more the charming little Swiss town that we were hoping for when we went to Lucerne and we very much enjoyed taking in the lovely alpine surroundings.

Too bad that Ellie was reallllllllllllly dragging by this point and we didn't get to explore quite as much as we'd hoped.    She vomited at lunchtime and was now officially full-blown sick
 Luckily for Ellie, it was a day with a lot more driving than walking.   After Interlaken, we headed to the Swiss temple in Zollikofen.

Then we crossed the border and headed to the mission home in Lyon, where Cami will be serving her mission in a couple of months.

It was evening time, so no one was in the office, but it was great to see a glimpse of where she'd be serving!

We walked around Lyon for a bit and found the famous Notre Dame of Lyon high up on a hilltop overlooking the city.  

Lyon was a bigger town than we expected...

and we loved visiting the place that will someday be a place that is near and dear to her heart!

After exploring for a bit more, we headed to our hotel, where Ellie and I chilled (and eventually slept) while everyone else went out in search of dinner.  

Other than Ellie being sick, it was a great day!
