Thanks to Jessica over at Swiss Story Blog we had a heads up about the Knabenschiessen this past weekend.
Knabenschiessen, a word I still can not pronounce despite the amount of people who have tried to help me, is a shooting competition for 13-17 year olds in Zurich. It is commonly referred to as "kids shooting".
Yep. A celebration of teenagers shooting guns.
A chilbi surrounds the area where the competition takes place. And you all know how much we love a chilbi.
So we packed up the kids and went into town for some rides and food with some friends.
Rides, rides, everywhere there were rides.
Siena was fascinated by Goofy behind her.
Checking out a 3D Batman show, which apparently was more psychadelic than expected.
The men discussing at what point in the morning it would be acceptable to purchase beer.
First roller coaster ride.
Everyone testing their strength.
The beer was purchased rather quickly, followed by a relaxing ferris wheel ride.
The men got sucked in to a fair game. Brian missed all of the cans on his first try. The guy running the game was amused by his efforts.
Betti then surprised us with her grossest blow out diaper to date.
The girls had their own way of riding the swings.
Everyone at the "silly house".
Marion loved the blast of air from the floor, once she was used to it.
I've always wondered what Nemo would taste like...
One last ride.
Great day! Sorry, no pictures of the kids with guns. Maybe next year.
