While our friend from the USA was here with us, we had a short visit from Bo's brother and neice from Germany! They were with us for one night and the cousins had a MARVELOUS TIME together despite not having a common language! Olivia (right side, yellow flowers) is exactly a year younger than Maya. Their interests are similar...fantasy worlds of fairies, princesses, little ponies and mermaids! They started the evening dressed in their matching Mexican dresses and as the night continued they had at least 3 other costume changes! The mess they made is proof of the fun they had during the short visit!
Not a good shot...but here we are at 8:30 pm sitting down for dinner...(notice it is still very bright outside, love the summer nights here!)
Guests: Both Bo's parents and mine, Uncle Åke, Bo's 2 brothers + girlfriend, and our guest, Pete from LA. 11 at the table, 2 at the girlies table...I need a bigger dining room table! (& longer table cloths!)
Menu: Reindeer Roast,
Potatoes, Walnut/dried blueberry ruccola salad, broccoli and wild mushroom sauce. Delicious wine as always because my brother-in-law is a wine specialist and has his own shop in Germany! Our cellar is always well stocked! (lucky me & my guests!)
Reindeer as in the Sami reindeer of Lappland...not venison. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sami_people
