Chateau de Chillon!

Right off Lake Geneva - about an hour from our home - this famous, lovely OLD (1150AD) castle was breathtaking to see ~ it was a great way to enjoy our day today. It apparently was inspiration to Lord Byron, Victor Hugo, Rousseau and others -- I can see why!File:The Sun Sets on Ch√Ęteau de Chillon.jpg

Here's Kas petting a dog as we enter the castle...


We didn't know if we should drink the water until several children and then an adult ran up and drank out of it, so we all did. No one feels sick yet...



Stephen also got himself a bow and arrow he's been saving for..
We also got to enjoy watching a soccer match, and doing some sight-seeing through several lovely little towns.  We found a great park in Lausanne, which is the home of the International Olympic Committee since 1915 and Official Olympic Capitol since 1994...



Kenny especially wanted Maxwell to see these awesome soccer players running...


Entire sections of land are divided up and have trees and vines growing on them -- apples - grapes - we can't wait to see them all in bloom! Here's what it will look like...
