Some of my summer in pictures

Now that the power chord to my mac has undergone home reparation (don't worry, I didn't do it, I'm not insane) I thought I would post some pictures from my summer :)
Starting with:
Midsummer! I spent my midsummer with Vanessa, Magnus and Joakim in Kungsbacka and at Tjolöholm Castle. We had a barbecue, they danced around the pole, it rained, we took a walk around the castle grounds, we went home and barbecued some salmon, we ate was a nice day.

Tjolöholms slott!

I need these flowers in my future garden, but I have no idea what they're called.

Later in the summer, I spent a lot of time with my godson. We went to the playground, we went on bicycle trips to the countryside, we ate bananas, we threw pebbles in Rolfsån, and we napped. It is exhausting spending time with and taking care of a kid, phew. Kudos to all you parents out there, I have no idea how you manage!

One day Sandra and I took the ferry out to Vrångö. We love it there and spent a whole day sunbathing, reading, swimming and picknicking.

We love going by boat, wohoo!

I went back and forth to Kungsbacka in July, to babysit Joakim and help Vanessa with stuff. Joakim has a knack for falling asleep on the bike, it's actually pretty adorable.

One afternoon we went to Stensjön to swim, it was absolutely lovely! It's only the second time I've gone swimming this summer, I should feel bad about that...

One particularly warm and sweaty day I went on a picknick in Slottsskogen with Mellgren, Andreas and Dille! Apart from me almost dying (you know I can't handle the heat), we had a lovely day in the park, looking at all the animals, eating ice cream, enjoying the view of Gothenburg and just wandering about. I love my city (and my friends!) so much.

Another day Mellgren took Sandra and me to visit our soon-to-be kitten, Misha! Hopefully, he'll be coming home with us in two weeks, and we also have a surprise related to this, but you'll have to wait and see... ;)

Me holding Misha, and Sandra being all "I want to hold the kitten, gimme!"

A few weeks ago we puppysat these two fur balls. Nera is the black puppy and the golden one is Yozi. They are adorable and I love them, even though they peed and shat on my floor...

Baby Nera

Last week I finally got to spend some time with Elsa, my dear old friend who it has been very difficult to see for the last five years or so, since she doesn't live in Gothenburg anymore. It was her 25th birthday and we celebrated her with pannkakstårta (a cake made with Swedish pancakes, ice cream, whipped cream and berries). It is delicious. 

A few days later Elsa, Lina and I went for a fika in Trädgårdsföreningen, and we visited Palmhuset (first time for me!). It contains exotic flowers and plants and is a very nice place to stroll around for a while. The admission is free, so I highly recommend a visit there!

My darlings Elsa and Lina :)

Hej Lina!
