A Swedish Summer Day by Delcious Decors
We had a great visit with my husband's family and friends in Sweden this summer. Although I enjoy Stockholm's beauty and all it has to offer, my favorite days were with the family at the summerhouse enjoying the simple pleasures.
"Jungle golf" was popular with the whole family! Even into the wee hours of the morning. Through the house, over the house, around the house; anything goes.
My son and his girlfriend, Billy & Dani, we able to spend a few days with us also, making our Swedish vacation even more special. I believe Billy was declared the golf champ, but Dani's smile won us all over.
We took the boat out on the Baltic cruising along the coast to see all the summer houses, so picturesque. This day on the Baltic was perfect ... (we'll leave out the story of the day on the Baltic, in the rain, with a broken motor ... !).
Dani, Mona-Lisa and I and were the gathers, while the guys watched over the bbq. We hunted for mushrooms, ningon and blueberries in the forest. Mona-Lisa's tool for cleaning mushrooms was new to us American gals, making it all the more interesting.
Oh, and The Door! Whether at home or on vacation, Fredrik always has a home repair or remodel project going on. Fredrik's parents had been talking about changing out that front door for months before our arrival. So, after several (and I mean several) trips to the one hardware store on the island, the project began.
Brotherly love replacing their parents front door ...
A meal at the end of the day with the people you love most is always the best!
What did you do this summer? We'd love to hear about your ventures and adventures. I think it's fun to get to share your vacation; look through photos again, tell some stories. It's almost like re-living your vacation all over again!
Happy Family Vacation,
