Weekends like this!

Summer, guys, it is just magnificent. We got a first taste this weekend and I jut can’t believe how much we waited for it. I am grateful for living in this beautiful corner of the world, but I cannot stop wishing for more days of sun. If only we would live in an endless summer (daydreaming much?).

We decided to spend this past Sunday up in the mountains, in Bannalpsee. We were there before, when Luca was 8 months old I believe. You can see some old pics here.

We took the cable car to go up the mountain and spend 4 hours taking a hike and having lunch. See some more pics below.

I am wearing an old top that was handed to me by one of my colleagues that cleaned her closet before leaving Switzerland. It still had the tag on, but she must have gotten it last season from Abercrombrie & Fitch (20% sale today). Since it is off the shoulder, it still looks great this summer when anything that uncovers the shoulders is a win win. Here are a few similar tops from Asos UK.

Mountain view

I am a big fan of the mountains now that I live in Switzerland. Taking a hike when you have a baby under one can sound very unrealistic, but we managed it for the first time a few weeks ago. We took the car until Oberrickenbach, then jumped in the cable car with the pram, baby and other accessories and in 10 minutes we were up to Bannalpsee. Once there we took a deep breath since the air suddenly got fresher (in Zurich there were around 35 degrees that day) and we had lunch with Luca on the terrace of the only restaurant/hotel from the area. And then we were off for a long walk/hike to admire the lake and the view of the mountains touching the sky. Notice how I get suddenly very poetic…the mountain does this to you…it just sets the mood for daydreaming and relaxing. Luca was so relaxed in the carrier that he fell asleep after 20 min. And for my boy to fell asleep in the carrier, now that is a big thing.

In all honesty we had a great family day. I could not recommend this more, especially if you have kids that are bit older. There were people swimming in the lake or simply just having a picnic there.
