But the lure of the outside space, most notably the quite simply amazing adventure playground nr Ranalt proved the perfect spot for a family picnic and afternoon's free entertainment (apart from the 6 euro parking fee)... the wooden playground housed an Archimedes Corkscrew (great chance to explain some elementary science/physics to the girls), real live frogspawn and a series of climbing walls, swings and slides... but perhaps the best ones of all.... a ferry across a boat pond with views to die for and an equally impressive zip wire!!!
The girls were in heaven (as were we!) but at last we tore ourselves away and headed up to the actual glacial head and a chance to see a thriving ski resort in action... Throw in a quick run into Liechtenstein to for good measure and it finished a busy, busy day!!!!
A great end to the day with Munich beckoning tomorrow that should have been enough.... yet the girls have amazed us with their progress so far... and with a recent series of certificates for spelling achievement and a maths level now exceeding 2 years above their age... we bought them their first roller blades!!!
It's a throwback to our university days and a great friend who played roller hockey for GB... now a god parent of Lottie, both girls have loved the idea of getting hold of of a pair!!! and today was their lucky day!
So tonight has been all about their first 'solo' circuits around the aire!! Both girls have managed it, and retreated to bed with much excitement... just perhaps, we might have to allocate some time to this tomorrow!!
Too many pics from today... so please bear with the slideshow!!!!
