Afternoon outing to “Slottet”

On the first weekend here in Norway for Kaelyn, Alex and Jane we did a short little outing to the Royal Castle in Oslo to pass some time in the afternoon and to get some fresh air too. Here we are posing in front of “Slottet” (as we call it in Norwegian) and we were even allowed to get a photo with the guard (Gardist). Very exciting!

Photo done, though we were told to stand on the gravel while he (the guard could be on the bricks) and we all had to stand on one side of him (guess he was afraid of Alex and Kaelyn attacking from each side)… Following this it was straight indoor to a deli just off Karl Johan (main street in Oslo) and we got some hot chocolate (a coffee for the daddy) and some cakes and yummies for all!

A little bit cold, but not too bad (even for the immigrants from England)!
