Rumpnissarna-ing… Umea Sweden

Bethan wasn’t feeling too crash hot last night.

I asked her if she would like to go for a  walk in the forest and take “sick” photos.

It was starting to get dark…. my favourite time, all moody and overcast.

So glad we went.  I have been really missing how busy and creative my job kept me in Australia.  That time will come again I know.  For now I can enjoy taking pics of my sick kids!  And she does a  pretty good job of looking good while feeling sick!

Camilla + Cameron visit | Umeå, Sweden

A  cup of tea may be needed viewing this… there are lots of photos below!

We were so lucky to have Camilla + Cameron stay for 4 days on their Scandi trip! I cried when they arrived and I cried when they left!

I’m glad I  have photos and not sound recordings to remember their trip.  One of my children was quite spectacularly naughty while they were here!

So here’s some memories….

Cheese, and lots of cheese

Moose magic

A  maze that literally took them over 8 minutes to get out of…  they got eaten by that maze!

Walks up pretty trails to views with so many trees

Stopping constantly to eat blueberries

That time picking blueberries where Camilla fell in a hole and sprained her ankle.  Ouch.  Thank goodness for a  remedial massage therapist husband to keep her looked after!  Cameron is a star.  And then any further walks were hobbles….

Home made Blueberry ice-cream

We loved that Camilla and Bethan had the same shoes.

And then there was Rosie’s crush on Cameron! She loved rubbing the back of his hair…  She literally said on the last day “Can I have some of your hair so I can stick it on paper and rub it all the time!”

We love you guys for coming so far north xxxx

Hello our little Swedish house

So last week we became the owners of a  little red Swedish house.

We aren’t moving in for quite a  few months because we have lots of things to do to it before then!

Painting every inside surface white, ripping up lino, laying new laminate floor boards, new bathrooms, fixing the roof, adding a  mudroom and sunroom….

And eventually next year,  a lovely big open plan lounge/kitchen off the end looking out over the trees and paddocks.

Its old, its quirky, but we love it.

We  celebrated getting the keys with donuts at the house and exploring all the books and things the previous owner left for us.  xx

Vännforsen Nature Reserve, Vindelälven | Sweden

We took a  trip to Vännforsen Nature Reserve on Sunday.  There were some pretty trails to the river Vindelälven where we hung out soaking up the sun, eating lunch, finding beaver gnawed logs, stick fights, swims, mud treatments, and bare bum time (Rosie!).

when Annette came to visit | Umeå Sweden

We were so lucky to have our first Australian visitor come.  Hoping that there are MANY many more! Annette stayed with us for 4 days and I didn’t really want her to leave.  There may have been tears when she left. She got to experience the mosquitoes when we TRIED to do a  photoshoot of each other.  Impossible!
