So for about a week in hot sizzling July (sometimes November), the Kaiser family would come to their "second home" for some relaxation and important family bonding time. They would occupy the entire Sunnyside house (newly renovated now, by the way!) and the first set of Townhouses. Mr. Kaiser would arrange tennis tournaments for the boys (complete with a trophy) and Mrs. Kaiser would arrange a golf outing for the girls at the Hotchkiss Golf Course right next door. Both kids and adults would enjoy the pool and our lakefront for kayaking, swimming and relaxing. On the last night of their stay with us, an old fashioned outdoor BBQ would be arranged, with a football being tossed and kids running about while the hot dogs and hamburgers were being grilled.
Today, they came in the same front entrance where they used to play "Baby Steps & Giant Steps" with grandson Brendan, and they had lunch today in the same room where they remember their little grandson Connor dancing with the band. They have so many fond family memories at Interlaken it's no wonder they have warm thoughts about us and continue to visit as much as they can! Although they wish it was easier for the entire family to come back for a get together, they realize it can be difficult and just hope it will happen again at some point.
Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Kaiser for coming for so many years and sharing your memories with me!
