Yesterday was Switzerland’s independence day! Zurich was covered in red flags with white crosses. The grocery stores sold red napkins, red fireworks, toothpicks with Swiss flags attached, and even hard-boiled eggs painted red with white crosses.
I set down the camera and joined my boys for a day of playing tag in the park, throwing the frisbee, barbecuing and enjoying yummy cakes. We bought a few fireworks, but forgot to shoot them off since Alex went to bed before it was even dark outside. =) In the evening Claudio and I saw a couple of great fireworks from our balcony (set off by neighbors).
It was a fun, relaxing day!
