Syttende Mai 2014

This year’s parade was an absolute blast! I have some family in Norway- Beate & Vebjorn, who sent me these beautiful traditional costumes, “ Bunads” for the kids to wear. It was the most thoughtful, special gift, and I’ve been waiting since December to get them dressed up for the celebration. They felt pretty special too, especially with all of the attention they received. Russ and I decided to make a quick stop before we got to the parade to try and snap a few photos. I’m thankful we live in a time of digital photography so I can take a bunch of pictures, and delete as many as I need, but I swear.. it is near impossible to get a photo where both of these kids are looking and/or are smiling! Oh well, these were the best we could do. Hoping they can still fit in them next year! Hipp Hipp Hurra!

He’s a good sport.;-)DSC_0205Viking ship!DSC_0207Bubbles!DSC_0214
