4 weeks abroad - family time

4 weeks in Britain - it's been great! Seeing family, meeting friends, exploring new places and enjoyed nice food and warm sunny weather. If I only new when I first moved over to study back in 2007. So glad I did!

Easter Fun with Little Cub Part 2

 Sunday came with the perfect Easter weather,so we packed the car with our ski gear and left Tromsø early in the morning. Little Cub has never been down hill skiing before so we drove to Målselv Fjellandsby to let him experience the thrill of this adrenalin sport and the atmosphere at a ski resort. Mike and I were so looking forward to it because we had not been down hill skiing since we went to France about 3 or 4 years ago. Way too long. 

Lunch at the ski resort.
  

13th April 2014 and Seth is 1 year and 2 months exactly. The ski instructors had never seen a younger child skiing at the ski resort before, and there were a few people taking his photo. Gosh I can  brag but hey...I am so very proud of him every day and all the time.
My Star!

Easter Fun with Little Cub part 1

Back to our sweet holidays and the opportunity to plan our week as spontaneously as we'd like. Saturday we took Little Cub to the slopes above our flat where he cross country skied for the first time. I thought he would be frustrated having skis attached to his feet, but he enjoyed it a lot. He only moaned when we took the skis off and got ready to go home.  Funny little lad.

The lovely flowers I received from my nan after shopping.
