Bern day trip

A week ago, Nicholas and I decided to take our version of a Sunday drive and hopped a train to Bern. We had each been before, but for meetings and not to really spend time enjoying the capitol. We had a great day exploring before the rain came :)

Bern is said to be named after the first animal hunted there, a bear. 
Since the early 1400's, Bern has kept live bears in the city. 
Bern is also known for it's fountains,
 there are over 100 in the small town
The garden
The baby bears- aren't they soo cute!
