Sunday, we made our way by train to Basel for the Christmas Market. It was worth the longer train ride just to see the faces of my children. Since they are all getting big, they really enjoyed the Christmas market this year.
We arrived in the train station in Basel.
Our first glimpse of the Christmas Market.
It smelled wonderful.
It was difficult to walk at some points but we managed to move with the crowd and sometimes through it.
My kids adored this stall. It isn’t hard to see why.
I didn’t know Vilay took this photo. It is strange to see even a little part of me in photos since I am the one that is usually behind the camera.
We didn’t buy any cookies but I was tempted!
The streets were all decorated. Window shopping was very festive.
My husband and my six year old daughter ate them up while the rest of us were happy to let them.
I love the big cow bells hanging in the top left side of the photo. Very Swiss.
The tent in the middle was perfect to grab a drink or bite to eat out of the cold.
Not only did it resemble a carousel it turned like one as well.
This beauiful dog never moved from his pose even as my noisy children walked behind him! I think he was waiting for his master who was inside.
My daughter had some problems getting her photos off her camera’s memory card last week. This weekend, she managed to find her camera’s cable and pulled them off that way.
