It came time to turn around and head back toward the airport.

On the way we took a peek at the corner of Switzerland.

Then spent the night in Triberg, Germany before heading back.

The home of cuckoo clock, nutcracker and little wooden puppet makers. You can bet I made Eliza sit down and watch Pinocchio with me the minute I got home :)

The detail and story telling in each clock is amazing.

I fairly skipped along like a kid getting a sneak peek at Santa's workshop with my baby packing sherpa in tow. 

And headed home with the best present of all .. the memories.

  4. I am going to have to take a look at my scrapbook. I think one of our day stops when we went to Germany for a weekend was Triberg. There was a festival/parade going on....so we joined for that and then went shopping for a cuckoo clock...some of your pictures looks very familiar...but I don't remember the towns name. I just remember that they all made us feel very welcome.
