My friend Pat is traveling around Switzerland with her mom, visiting some relatives of theirs. They've been in the Geneva area for a few days now, and she'll be staying with me for a few days starting Wednesday but I was hoping we'd be able to get together this weekend as Zach leaves for the states again on Tuesday. So she invited us to come over to her aunt's house (where they're currently staying) for drinks and dinner this afternoon.
We headed over a bit on the late side, got there I think around 5pm, and they were actually just sitting down for a very late lunch! We got to squeeze in at the table with all of them (Pat, her mom, the aunt and her 2 children: her daughter, and her son with his new wife, and later their 7 month old baby came out to play) and enjoyed some very yummy lamb, peas, and potatoes au gratin. We also got to come home with some fresh cherries picked off the cherry tree in their backyard.
The aunt and her family were all super sweet and we had a great time-- she insisted we call her or drop by anytime we want. =) She's actually Scottish but has been living in Switzerland for over 30 years, and she (and her children) all have adorable accents b/c of it. Anyway, we had a really great time. It's so cool to meet local people, especially when they're just so damn nice! =P
