Fun times in the skate park - no one else was there but us,

Happy Swedish Cinnamon Bun Day!


Swedish Cinnamon Day 2017

The 4th of October is a special day in Sweden.
We are celebrating The National Cinnamon Bun Day.

Even though I no longer live there,
I still think it's important to celebrate,
and show my kids,
highlights from my country of birth.

Last day of the school holidays

Today was the last day of the school holidays. We got an extra day thanks to our state's Queen's birthday public holiday. It's been raining on and of pretty much all day. We haven't had any rain for weeks, so our lawn was dry and brown. It's amazing how quickly the grass changed colour back to green again. Yesterday we went to our park for a quick play before the rain arrived.



💖 Yours truly with hubby 💖

Tomorrow, it's time for school again - after 17 days off... I'm not so sure if the kids feel excited to start the last term of the year... I feel a bit low that we have to go back to our normal routines with school lunches and bus trips, but I'm pretty sure we'll all get back into it in a week or so. Only 10 weeks until the Christmas holiday/Summer break. The countdown has begun! 

Thank you for stopping by!

A day in the skate park with Jonah

Well, not really a whole day... Half an hour more likely... It was so hot so Jonah asked to go home after 30 minutes... 😎




Google kindly created some awesome panorama photos using some of my photos...




Pretty spectacular, hey?!


Greetings from us two!
Thanks for coming to the park with us ♥

A woop woop holiday

Finally school holidays - and we are so lucky that we have friends out in the countryside. Jokingly, I always say we're going to 'woop woop' when we are going to their place, but I do it with so much love - I totally enjoy leaving suburbia and heading out there to see them. The peace, the quiet (not really...lol) and of course the scenery! We spent two days and one night with our friends, and we had so much fun!!


We started out our holiday with fun times in the nearby public pool...

It was such a hot day.
We had a picnic lunch and lots of laughter.

We continued with some outdoor play... and a stunning sunset!


Awww, our Swedish and Australian flags ♥


Gymnastics and acrobatics


Jonah and Sammy doing boy stuff... hahaha



We also celebrated Jonah's birthday!



Happy Birthday!



The fantastic four ♥


After such a fun filled - and cake filled day,
we all fell asleep before 9pm!


We started day 2 with a scrumptious brekky!


Hello from the breakfast table!
...what a mega breakfast it was 😊



I had to make sure I rested a bit after having brekky...

This is my favourite spot!



Hello from my paradise!


Time for fun in the skate park!







Crazy selfie with my Swedish bff!


We continued with lunch and some OP shopping 
before heading home to us. We ended the day with more cake... 😍

OMGoodness, we've been eating so much cake lately!



Another selfie... 😍
So happy I found my Swedish bff here in kangaroo country!


A bit of craziness at the end of the day... lol 😄

Thank you for stopping by!

Jonah's 11th birthday - Part 3

Last day of celebrating Jonah's 11th birthday - and what a birthday weekend it was!


Today we celebrated Jonah's birthday in the park with friends and family!


It was a gathering of childhood friends and school friends.
A lovely mix of pre-teens...

In two years, Jonah will actually be 13!!
He will be a teenager... 






Money, money, money... ☺☺☺


Lots of happy smiles!





Jonah had a wonderful day in the park with lots of presents and plenty of cake!
But, I think the best part was sharing the day with his best friends ☺


... and then off to the skate bowl!

Jonah's 11th birthday - Part 2

Time for cake!

Jonah requested a Swedish delicacy called "Kladdkaka" - a sticky and gooey chocolate mud cake which is totally scrumptious. The cake was served with whipped cream... and it all disappeared way too quickly! Yum ☺


11 candles!


Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday dear Jonah, Happy Birthday to you... ♥


Make a wish!



This is my piece... What are you having?!

♥♥♥
