One week down, one more to go! And that’s about the only break I’ll have this summer. Noah and I have had a great week, but an active one. Since we can’t go on vacation, we’ve had to stay active within the borders, but at least we’ve left the landscape; Skåne. On Monday, we took a two hour train ride to a small town with not much to offer for tourists, but since my friend and her partner lives there, we were creative and came up with things to do. We went swimming, made a “smörgåstårta”, went for walks and drank wine. It was lovely. The day after we stopped by at my cousins house for dinner on the home, which was also really nice. Wednesday, we traveled again, but this time, within Skåne, but I however miscalculated the bus times, and it turned out we had over an hour walk in the middle of nowhere and far from civilization to get where we needed to go. But we finally arrived at a place called Eriksgården, where we met up with my friend and her children. There we ate lunch, Noah played with his friend at the massive playground and lastly we went strawberry picking. The best strawberries I’ve ever had in my life! 🍓
On Thursday was our only “take it easy” day but even then did we keep busy. We had a lot of fixing, cooking and cleaning to do for our midsummer party that we had on Friday. Midsummer was obviously not as insane as it usually is because we had to keep it low key due to corona, but that didn’t stop the snaps from going down, the songs from being sung, and the classic midnight swim from happening. We had a blast with our guests with all the flower crowns and insane games. Yesterday and today, has been pretty calm, but a lot of planning too because tomorrow is my BIRTHDAAAAY!!!! I’ll be turning 26, so not the most exciting age, and being in the middle of a pandemic and everything, I don’t have plans to get too crazy. I will however have some friends over for brunch tomorrow, and then I’ll be going out to eat with Noah and my parents, so I’m at least excited to do something.
Thursday, Noah and I will be taking a boat ride to an island called Ven, where we will go camping. He is so excited and I’m going to love to share that experience with him. Other than that, we don’t have much more planned before I need to be back to work.
If anyone has any advice on weekend trips that are kid friendly within Sweden, please let me know! I want to give my son a good summer!
