Scandinavian Festival 2013

 Can't believe a year has passed.
It went so quick... ☺
 Yesterday's highlight was the annual Scandinavian Festival!

 Here is the post from last year's event...☺

We spent the day enjoying the awesomeness
of the Scandinavian countries - and a few Nordic countries as well.

The Finnish stall


10 000 visitors, sunshine and +29°C (84.2°F)

Saga Vikings


I met up with my Swedish friend Gunilla and her daughter Anna.


Jonah played floorball for the first time!

After a whole day of walking around it was nice for Lily
to finally sit down in the pram and go on the bus.

She fell asleep on the way home and had a lovely 1½hr sleep.
I felt like doing the same lol

 Already looking forward to next year's Festival!
