Snow



One of the first things we tasted after our arrival was a traditional cinnamon bun. Oh, this was a really good one! The children did the trip so well, first 1.5h by car, then bus to the airport from the long term parking, 2h plane ride and then another 1.5h by car, so maybe there wasn't that strange that when we finally sat down in the kitchen to have a snack, that it tasted like heaven...



The weather seems to be on our side, it usually never snows out here by the sea, but the day after our arrival we had quite a good amount of snow. The children and I made a snow man. Good thing we placed him on the shadowy side of the house, because most snow has mealted away today, but he is still standing!



Some ivy looking out from the snow.

Today, I've spent most of the day in bed due to stubborn sinuses *I've got to get them sorted out!*, but in the afternoon, I took the children to the play ground. There wasn't much snow around, but C threw himself in every little heap he could find. Luckily there was some at the playground...



Happy C.



J mostly wanted to go on the swing, but wanted me to take a photo of her in the snow as well...

They're so SWEET! C looks a bit cold after building the snowman. :)
We had 19 degrees today, wore T-shirt when I walked to the post office at lunch time... I can see the snowcappepd mountains though.

I just looove their spaceship-hats! Also, I envy all that snow, it looks lovely!

(I had to giggle a bit when you talked about your trip though. I know, everything is relative and your kids were great for travelling so well, but I can't help but compare it to my latest SWE-trip (8 hrs flight+1 hr on the ground+8 hrs flight+1 1/2 hrs on the ground+2 hr flight+2 hr car ride..).)

Enjoy Sweden, and the cinnamon buns!

I love the cinnamon bun photo, and the one of C and the snowman is so cute - I love the snowman's hat and face! And I love the kids' hats!
