Catching up and our long weekend in Zinal

It has been a VERY long time since we had good weather, so we enjoyed the sunny weekend even more than usual. It was a long weekend and we spent it in Zinal. Zinal is a small mountain village with a lot of charm. It is a nice area to ski in the winter they tell us but any season there would be nice. There was barely a cloud in the sky and we played in and outdoors all day long. Unfortunately our kids have not discovered how nice hiking is (are you snickering dad, remember our refusal to budge on a hiking trail at Yosmite?) so we had to do our walks separately. Kind of dumb but that is how it is at the moment. Alinya wasn't super happy all weekend and the rest of us seem to be fighting pink eye and bronchitis so it was interesting keeping everybody happy and entertained! Liam is at Maria's for the week so I can finally get into my pre-preps mucking out. Anyone interested in organizing a very disorganized household in three days? No takers? I am looking forward to having the whole place polished up soon! Come on summer :)
