Cold, but smiling…

Autumn outing to Sjusjøen.

We did an outing to Sjusjøen yesterday. An area where you can go swimming in the summer or skiing in the winter. This time of the year it is also a nice area for a family outing on a Sunday. Must admit that we got a little bit surprised how cold it was, so the outing was cut short, and we headed home early, lit the fire and made hot chocolate with marshmallows and watched a movie…

We are well settled into our new place here in Øyer. Lillehammer is just 15 minutters drive away. Kaelyn can walk to school and Alex is enjoying his days in the kindergarten. Ballet for Kaelyn is sorted, as is gymnastics for Alex!

The other day we woke up to temperatures below zero… Daddy had to scrape off the frost from the car using a bank card since we did not have a proper scrape… We are desperately trying to stock up on all necessities ahead of winter! Tons of stuff (it feels like)!

Well, if it gets too cold, I guess we can retreat to our loung for some more hot chocolate and movies in front of a roaring fire… Just need to get some more hot chocolate and fire wood first…

Summer days at Lillehammer!

A day out….

There is such a thing you know! Summer, in Norway! It might not be here every day in through the months of June, July and August… but it does come out once in a while! Then we just have to make the most of it!

Lillehammer offers so much for us to do and explore as a family. We have done a lot, but still much to do! Kids love daddy’s work! Well, maybe not ‘the work’, more the fact that they have access to Hunderfossen and all the rides and the fun stuff available for kids (at all ages)! They are also starting to get into the Troll’s and the many stories about them…

Still not all living up here, but soon the movers will arrive and then the whole family will be here. All in time for kindergarten and school start!

The 3 top pictures are all from Barnas Gård at Hunderfossen. The Peacock was showing off, Alex as well (hands full of ice cream) and the poor rabbits will not have any fur left by the end of summer judging the intensity of loves and petting by Kaelyn and the other kids holding and loving the little fluffy animals. The last picture is taken at the top of Hafjell with “the running man” (created for the Olympics in 94) in the background.
