Midsummer 2014

Midsummer this year was spent in nearby Norrby Holme – an extremely nice local midsummer celebration.

The weather was against us (around 12 degrees C !) but fortunately it didn’t rain…

Maya and I collected lots of wild flowers for the ‘maj stång’ (midsummer pole), and then the preparation for the pole got started…

I can honestly say, it was the most beautiful pole I’ve ever seen..

Of course there was lots of dancing round the pole (this was the only picture I could take, being in the middle of the inside ring, and totally committed to the dance!)…

…and afterwards there were lots of games to play, such as sack races, darts, the chocolate wheel, rifle target shooting, the fishing pool, and the pancake eating contest….

Happy Midsummer everyone! The kids are going to be tired tomorrow – we weren’t home until 11pm – and the sun still hadn’t got down! 😉
