What a weekend! On Thursday we filled our car with food, baby clothes, board games, diapers and whatnot and drove south to the countryside and our cabin. It was the first time this year and the first time ever with a baby. Unfortunately we weren’t the only ones leaving Stockholm this weekend so it took more than an hour longer than usual. But the feeling when you finally open the door and step out of the car in the countryside is amazing – so much fresh air and so quiet.
The entire weekend was spent there, by the lake. We met some family and celebrated that summer is here on Midsummer’s Eve. We took long walks with the stroller and Adam got to see cows for the first time. He was more than interested and laughed like crazy when one of the cows said ”moo” to him. There is nothing better than watching him become a little human, to see the world through his eyes.
On Midsummer’s Eve we made a crepe cake with raspberries and strawberries. I’ve shared the recipe before on the blog, you can find it here. We’re not much for traditional Midsummer food (which is basically the same as the food you eat on Christmas and Easter) so a crepe cake seemed like the perfect Midsummer lunch to us. We served it under the apple trees in the garden and of course I had to snap a few photos.
As soon as we get to the countryside we become so calm and all zen like. K said that being there is like meditating 24/7. You’re just so calm. It’s obvious that we are no city-people at all. We feel so much better in the countryside. We just have to find a house that we like and then we’re out of the city! Hopefully it won’t take that long. Anyway, I took quite a few photos during our little weekend getaway, and I thought I should share them with you today.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
