Play Parks with Mama
Last week Papa worked in Switzerland.
We decided to drive him to Martigny to see a different valley and cross the border.
We sent Papa off on his train to Zermatt. He was doing two trips, so we weren't going to see much of him for a four days.
We decided it might be fun to check out the farmers market in St.Gervais (now we're back in France).
Check this basket out Oma, it's perfect!
Now, I can help mama shopping which we actually seem to do alot of.
Ducky's eating tons too, he uses the toilet regularily just like me.
Unfortunately just after this photo,he fell IN the toilet! Lucky duck we have a washing machine, now he is clean again.
This is Lac Passy, its down in the valley that heads to Geneva.
The morning is super fun to come here for running, splashing and playing trucks with french boys.
Last week we flew a kite here in a lightning storm, Opa would have loved that!
These are my two english friends, I met them two years ago when we lived here before.
We're trying to coax a chicken out of her box, she doesn't seem to keen on us.
That's their mum, Bekha.
She taught us how to rub plantain on our legs to get rid of stinging nettle.
There is loads of it here, hard to avoid as a curious kid.
Here's a play park in Vallorcine.
Its a big adventure to come here, we take a train that tunnesl under a mountain.
Its higher elevation so we like to come here when it gets too hot in Les Houches.
Its early morning and we've decided to take this ancient lift near Contaimes.
I was super underdressed as the sun hasn't warmed this valley yet, luckily we had my new wind/water jacket from grandpapa, this keeps me warm.
Its just like a bubble!
At the top, we found an amazing play area with a ...
Small little mountain lake for throwing rocks.
And paddle boats for Mama and I.
And a zipline, just my size.
In Le Fayet this is a tricky bridge, all the kids are, we focus pretty hard.
Just above me is a zip line with bigger kids, soon I'll grow enough to do that.
We're making a big supper for Papa, he eats alot too, it must be all that vertical.
