Happy July 4th!

It feels so strange to be in a foreign country on this special U.S. holiday, where back home we would be celebrating with a cook out and local fire works. We don't wear our flag when we travel, but I am at last wearing a bit of patriotic red, white, and blue in honor of this important occasion, celebrating our country's freedom.

God bless America!

And may God keep my family safe today as they go paragliding! Photos later of MM, Haley, Ansley, and Macey. For the record, Macey literally jumped at this chance, with Ansley then Haley slowly warming up to the idea. We shall see who has the biggest smiles when they return this afternoon.

Logan didn't want to try it, and this sport was never on my bucket list (mostly fearful of damaging knees), however after watching all the smooth landings here at the park across from our hotel yesterday, I am sort of regretting not going out with them.

This is a view of the park and parasailing activity already this morning, but not where my family will be landing. Bugger. They took the train to another city, then a cable car UP a large mountain where MM parasailed from down into this valley a few years ago and loved it!

Logan and I will bum around town and probably sit and enjoy the local scenery.

At least the weather is cooler here in Interlaken, and should continue to be in Salzburg...tomorrow.

Life is definitely good, y'all!

I'd be watching the landings, too, but I'm glad those who went, enjoyed it!
