The little island called Donsö

Like I said in the last blog post we went to a little island of the west coast. It is about a 30min ferry ride. There are no cars on the island (well a few, but mainly for building and stuff) they all ride cute little scooters or golf carts. It is really cute. Talk about some clean air. We have really good friends that live there so we actually visit it quite often. It does not have beaches like Hawaii (but who does) it’s perfect for the kids. A little bit of sand and some cold water. Actually it wasn’t that bad. I would recommend the island to anyone visiting. You can walk the whole island in maybe an hour and half. The houses are beautiful and the views from the rocks are amazing. Some amazing spots to swim. We went to a different one each day. The last one we went to was the best as it was just the easiest with having a baby who wants to crawl. The best place to eat on the island is call Isbolaget. Serioulusly so good. Hubby got the smoked salmon twice. The meals are good and you actually get a lot (in europe you tend to get really small plates) as well it’s design is really cool, minimal but still bringing comfort. So here are some images of our couple of days there. The pictures are from the three days we were there.

Enjoy

I didn’t want to do another post and I just liked a lot of the images so there is a lot. Sorry… not really.

Dust bunnies

If blogs could collect dust this blog would have so many dust bunnies! I mean really.. I can’t even believe how long it has been. It’s almost been so long I felt like maybe I should start a new blog and start all over, but then I thought that was a dumb idea. Its like an old journal that got lost and is now found. I hope to be blogging more…… I will not promise because if I look at my history with blogs it’s not that great. Which is strange because I think blogs are fabulous. What a great way to document your life. I just reread a couple of my blogposts here on this blog and was flooded with memories. So here I go again!

I thought I would start of with my husbands birthday. We went to Donso for two days, just to get away. We where staying at a friends house who was gone. It was perfect, the weather was fantastic, almost too hot! I know I can’t believe I just wrote that. The kids loved it. My father-in-law joined us, he is down here for the summer. I feel so blessed to have these people in my life, they are the greatest gifts in my life. I am also so glad this hubby of mine is another year older! Birthdays are so much fun!

We followed the Swedish tradition of waking him up with breakfast (I think you are supposed to do a cake but I didn’t make one the night before and I wasn’t waking up at 6am to bake)and then packed our bags to head to the island for two days.

I have a whole bunch of photos of the island but I will save that for the next post.
