I think I'm ready to blog again!
I felt totally drained after our vacation and all the socializing. I really need some down time between dinner parties and such and it wasn't a lot of that. When I got back here I got really homesick and I realized that I didn't have time to do a lot of the more everyday things that I was so looking forward too. Next time I will try to stay a bit longer. I did suspect that something was going on with my camera during our stay and none of the pictures that I took came out. At least I had my husband take some pictures just as backups but they were not as many as the ones I thought I had taken. Sigh!
Anyways we were a bit more cultural this year, got to quite a few museums and such but this was my favorite! This is Läckö Castle, it's a well preserved barock castle with a lot of furniture and wall paintings from the 1600's. Isn't it pretty? There has been convents and forts on this little peninsula since the 1100's I think and I can understand why.
My son especially likes to pose with the canons, happens at every castle we do get too!
My DD loves checking out gardens and they had a wonderful vegetable and herb garden, authentic with plants they would have grown 400 years ago there.
Isn't this the prettiest view?
The kids had a great time with their cousins especially when my DH and BIL joined in the soccer games.
The weather was pretty good! I couldn't find any pictures from the beach house when we had a sunny day but the kids jumped into the water everyday anyways. It was kind of nice to have the beach to ourselves.
I did get some stitching done when I was there, this needleroll mostly, I really had to since this was for an exchange. I still have some pictures of finished pieces to share, I will get those up within a couple of days, promise!
Thank you for visiting and all your sweet comments!
