Midsummer 2012!

Yesterday was Midsummer in Sweden, and it's a big holiday celebrated by big parties and fun stuff for the kids etc.  We went to my aunt's house and had a great time!  The kids were not in bed until after midnight!!

Daytrip to Denmark!

Yesterday was a gorgeous summer day here (and those are rare my friend).  I took the kids on a little day trip to Helsingör (Elsinore?), Denmark, and visited Cronborg's castle.  I used to go there A LOT when I was younger, mostly because it was a popular destination for school field trips. 
back then I probably didn't appreciate it, but now, going back as an adult and showing the kids around it was a lot of fun! 

After visiting the castle we walked around in the small city (village?) of Helsingör and had lunch at the town square. 

Cronborg's Castle, built in 1574. 

The big ballroom, this was a big hit with the girls! 

Alex liked it too :) 

A big canon pointing right towards Sweden, hrmpf!

Lunch in Denmark, of course we had to have red hot dogs!

Beautiful buildings!

Hike! (Kullaberg)

Yesterday we ended up doing some serious rock climbing!  We only started going up a small rock and the kids like to "climb" a little bit but it turned into quite the hike and it was amazing!!  The girls did great and Eric carried Alex...YIKES!

Sweden 2012

Greenland at night!

Maybe if I start doing some shoutouts for Iceland air they will cut me some slack on future tix? 

Dusk at Iceland.  This is as dark as it gets this time of year.

Above the clouds leaving Iceland. 

A couple of days ago we left Florida to spend a summer in Sweden.  To get there we flwe Fort Myers - NYC, NYC - Iceland, and Iceland-Copenhagen (yes, Copenhagen is in denmark but it's really close to my dad's house).  Because we were travelling to Europe at night, we were able to see some amazing views of the midnight sun.
