A Little Bit of Summer

SUMMER. More than 10 years after graduating from school, I’m still dividing my year into terms: Autumn term, Spring term and Summer term. Warm sunny days and long illusive nights. In the land of the Midnight Sun anyway. And even if this Summer I’ve been working more than usual there is still that lovely lingering feeling of everything slowing down for a while.

This year we were lucky to have the Grandparents come visit from Down Under and stay for a good old time! So nice for everybody to get together again and especially for Leon to meet them for the first time and be thoroughly spoiled! Fred&Liz&Levi popped by in July and we got to fly over to Sweden for a great family rendez-vous on the Summer Island, as well as duck over to Örebro quickly to see Brad’s Swedes—what a treat! And to finish it all off we went camping in the Malverns, 1-year old and all. It was fun! Oh and then there was Leon’s first ever birthday!

Here’s a few samples of all the adventures!
