The Santo family from Switzerland.
Their comments from our guest book at the BnB
"Dear Darrell and Dawna, we thanks you so much for your warmhearted hospitality! Your house is very beautifully furnished, we are very impressed. A lot of details, and are all in the right place. The flowers this morning were wonderful and the breakfast, dear Dawna, was very fine. Thanks so much for all. I hope we can come back in a few years. We wish you all the best If you are in Switzerland one day, you are very invited, to visit us."
It really is a small world, and in about a months time, Darrell and Ben will be in Switzerland and do plan on visiting the Santo family!! Ben leaves for Sweden on July 28th...he is going with Hockey Ministries International and will be helping with on ice coaching and counselling at 2 hockey camps in Sweden. Then on Aug 13th, he will meet up with his dad and grandpa in Zurich for another 2 weeks of seeing where Grandpa Florian was born and spent his early childhood. They will have quite the adventure!! Turns out that the Santo family's farming operation is only about 1 hour from where Darrell, Ben and Florian will be ! Ben will be travelling on his own to Sweden, so I know I will be a little bit anxious next week...you can say a prayer for me!! I am glad that he and I travelled to Europe last spring with the school trip, atleast he will know a little bit of what to expect with international travel.

Can't believe it is time to let them spread their wings more!!
We finally have had some really hot weather here on the prairies!! On Saturday, after getting breakfast done for a full house at the BnB and getting all the rooms made up for the next group of people, I decided to sit in the sun for awhile, sip some iced tea and read my book!!
