Midsummer at IKEA Logan

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.

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.

My plate.
... and yes, the prawns on the other plate were mine too.
Love prawns. 

My blue and yellow children

Happy Midsummer everyone!

  3. It looks like a fun time was had by all.

  4. OMG. It was really crazy there for a while. One little table to feed the hungry hordes. It was kind of like the loaves and the fishes. But we had plenty of food in the end. A great day.
