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. 🙂
