Switzerland

Great Cheese, Chocolate, Yogurt, and the Freakin Swiss Alps... what more could you ask for?

Lausanne, one of the most breathtaking places I have ever been!


Chateau De Chillon













LUGANO










My old man absolutely LOVED Migros yogurt while he was a missionary. He said he ate a pint a day. It was a blessed day, the sweet reunion of Migros and Elder Smoot!!!



Italy

We just took a trip to Italy, Switzerland and France. We went with my parents and my sister Jenny and her husband Steve. We didn't even bring bubby with us. It was my first time ever being away from him and it was really hard for me to say goodbye. It was best for everyone that little kids didn't come and we had a lovely time. My dad served his mission in Northern Italy and Southern Switzerland and hadn't been back to his mission yet. It was an absolute joy to following him around and have him tell all his mission stories. He was like a giddy kids at Christmas. His Italian was fantastic for having been gone for so many years. It was a trip to remember!

LAKE COMO




FLORENCE














The Vatican









Me asking in Italian, "Is there a discount for being beautiful?" It always worked in Spanish so I thought I'd give it a try...

We miss Milo. Thanks Annie and Jeff for taking care of him while we were away!
