Weekend at Konga in Sweden

Yesterday afternoon we got back home from our weekend at Kongagården in Sweden.

We had a wonderful weekend – Kongagården is a beautiful place. The house is BIG, and we had lots of space to relax, play, and just spend time together. The house is situated next to a forest lake with a big terrace overlooking the lake, and there are rowing boats, canoes, fishing rods, fire rings – well, anything you need for a weekend enjoying the typical Swedish landscapes. The weather has been amazing – truly the first real spring time weekend this year.

Ronja has been canoeing for the first time ever, and she certainly seemed to enjoy the experience. She also enjoyed playing with her friends Emil and Rebecca for an entire weekend – hiding out in one of the many rooms, having secret conversations, drawing, playing by the lake (with an adult there), reading, climbing the rocks, baking twistbread over a fire and so much more.

It’s wonderful to get out of the house and spend this kind of weekend once in a while – we have had great food, and enjoyed late night candlelight conversations with our friends – seated in the ugly but very comfy couches. I think Frida had a nice time as well – she really likes watching the other children, and she has been taking some long naps. It must be the fresh Swedish forest air! Check out the rest of the pictures here.

Today, we are all a little bit tired. Ronja is home from the kindergarten – I think she needs to toddle about at home today. 🙂

    Det ser ud som om I har haft en rigtig dejlig ferie, og det gode vejr fra Danmark er fulgt med 😉

    Vi har også været trætte alle sammen i dag. Det gode vejr har betydet masser af timer i det fri. Sommetider er det hårdt at holde ferie. Det er lige før man trænger til et par fridage derefter.

    Hvor ser det fantastisk ud dér hvor i har været. Vi elsker også Sverige og vender tilbage dertil igen og igen…både sommer og vinter. Jeg holder meget af svenskere og deres gæstfri og glade sind.

    Det er nogle dejlige billeder af jeres børn -det ser ud som om de nyder alle de fantastiske ting, der er at lave i den svenske natur….og i de frygtelige svenske sofaer. Dem render man ind i overalt…i sommerhuse, skihytter og deslige ;0)

    Hej begge
    Tak for jeres søde kommentarer! Ja, man bliver træt på en helt særlig måde af den friske luft, men det er positivt.
    Dengang vi var uden børn tog vi på kanotur i Sverige en uges tid hvert år – det kommer lige til at vente lidt, men man skal jo have kørt pigerne i stilling! ;o)

A penny for your thoughts?
