Since I was sick we decided to head to Bern for the day instead of walking in the mountains. Honestly, I don’t think I have been this sick in years.
We ate at Burger King (a treat for the kids), had warm apple turnovers from McDonald’s (a treat for all of us), window shopped, let the kids play at a park near the church and spent a lazy day walking all around the city.
The day was a nice family outing except for one breakdown.
Petite Clown (my five year old) left her doll at the park by the church. She didn’t even realize it was gone until an hour later and she couldn’t remember where she had left it. Luckily, her sister did. So, we walked back to the park to see if the doll was still there. It was waiting for Petite Clown on a bench. Whew. It was a close call because my Petite Clown loves her dolls and she had cried from her heart when she realized it was gone. The rest of the day she carried her doll protectively in her arms just like a real Mama.
