Thursday, 27 June 2013
It's been lots of blue and yellow celebrations lately. First we celebrated Swedish Mother's Day at the end of May, then a few days later we celebrated the Swedish National Day with two blog posts, here and here.
More Midsummer celebrations followed,
first with Swedes Down Under
... then some Midsummer decoration at home.
Lovely and bright.
More blue and yellow decor can be found here.
Hope you all have enjoyed it as much as we have.
(Happy Midsummer in Swedish)

Lily and I are picking kumquats (Nagami Cumquats) at the kids' grandparents house.
The kumquat is the smallest fruit in the citrus family, perfect for marmalade☺
Next to the lemon tree
My FIL and I made a midsummer wreath for Lily
Lily - my little Midsummer Princess♥
... but also a racing car driver!

I'll take any chance I get to celebrate a Swedish event or a holiday♥
It's so important for the kids to understand and experience their Swedish heritage.
Midsummer at IKEA with Volvo and Vikings
Jonah - a future cool Volvo driver!

Time for Midsummer lunch in the IKEA restaurant
After a 45 mins wait in a long queue...
400 pre bought tickets had been sold, both online and in the restaurant
previous to this day.
Lots of people showed up and thought they could buy the tickets, then and there,
but unfortunately had to leave cause there were no tickets left.
Finally some food!
A mixture of Swedish delicacies;
different kinds of salmon, meatballs, prawns, eggs,
pickled herring and potatoes... etcetera.
... and yes, the prawns on the other plate were mine too.
My blue and yellow children
Happy Midsummer everyone!
