|Auntie Carla and Uncle Robert brought this cool book so that Eva could learn some useful Dutch Words! Uncle Robert read it to her the first night he was here, and somehow he got roped in to reading many more stories as well!|
|Here is a windmill that Eva made with the whole family. The little tulip stickers were a present from Carla and Robert and fit to the theme perfectly!|
|Here are Eva and Robert making traditional Dutch Appelflappen. They were delicious!|

|Here is Uncle Robert with a delicious Dutch meal: Hutspot with sausage, red cabbage and appelflappen.|
The bapstism went very nicely, and we had many guests come to celebrate with us. We were so glad that Emma and Eva behaved so nicely. Eva was very pleased because she got to bring her own baptism candle to be lit during the ceremony. Speaking of baptism candles, Carla and Robert made a lovely one for Emma. Daniel wanted to bring his, but sadly it burned down to the end during our wedding!
|Emma and Eva's candles side by side.|
And now some baptism photos featuring the top of Emma's head!
|Godparents Carla and Robert|
|With the one and only Tschomana|
|Here is our church, isn't it pretty?|
As always when we have guests, some touristy attractions were visited, and we learned even more about the country we live in. In the photo below, we are touring the Cardinal Brewery Museum in Fribourg. The great grandson of the founder of the brewery gave us an excellent impromptu tour! Swiss people rock!
|After all of that nice man's kindness, Robert still tried to steal a keg. Tsk tsk.|
|Here is Eva on St. Petersinsel showing that biking is not so hard|
Robert and Carla had a very amazing experience paragliding in interlaken. I am jealous, because I don't quite have it in me to do this, but it looks awesome!
|Having a blast with Mickey|
|Here I am, feet firmly on the ground with my little treasure. Giving birth to her was all the thrills I needed for one year!|
|Emma meeting Tschomana for the first time|
|Eva very excited to see her Tschomana|
|I love smiling. It's my favorite :)|
|This is how my husband looks when he comes home from mountain biking. There is horse poo on those trails. He gets his welcome home kiss after he showers :)|
