The meetings were held here and the surrounding ski resorts, including downhill and cross country skiing are very popular in this area of Switzerland's winter wonderland!

In the building to the right is the spa where there are two big &quot;beds&quot; of hay where you can relax and forget all your troubles : )! It took me right back to my farm roots and actually produced the desired result!

The food was the best of local food as well as a restaurant with a Michelin Star chef! &nbsp;It's a place where Roger Federer and his wife sometimes dine, as he has a house in the next valley! &nbsp;Just FYI.

The afterglow of our amazing experience there lasted all the way back to Zurich, where we did a workshop on family for the Eyre's Stake congregation there. The ride back was spectacular and we had such a fun group of parents at the meeting as well as two terrific translators who did a great job! Tal introduced us in High German! A first and a big effort for him! He is trying to hard to learn German but it has been so hard with his extensive travel schedule for work. He was delighted that people laughed at his jokes so he knew they were understanding what he was saying! Thanks not only for that Tal, but also for adding so much to the discussion. There's nothing like having &nbsp;someone who was raised in our house there to explain &quot;the real deal&quot;!

It will probably take a couple of years for the film to come to the theaters but the direction we should go settled in our minds as we digested what we learned! We grew to love all the participants of the Summit and are so grateful for their input!
<p>It was a trip we'll never forget!&nbsp;</p>
