A weekend-y photo dump


So as promised in my last entry, I've got a whole lot of photos for you all to see from our weekend away with family...

 The Hubs and I and little Aurora packed up on Friday night and woke up early on Saturday to head out to a beautiful, famous, old hotel here in Norway...about 3-hours away from where we live. It's in a really low valley where all of Norway's fruit orchards are.

The Hub's maternal grandparents were celebrating their golden anniversary, and decided to take all their children, grandchildren and Aurora (their first great-grandbaby!) away for a the weekend to celebrate...

What an amazing way to celebrate 50-years of marriage, right? And 50-years?! WOW.

So we ate amazing food, saw beautiful scenery and played around all together in the hotel pool, the tennis courts, bowling alley, and even whipped out some board games late Saturday night in one of our rooms!

Then on Sunday, when everyone checked out of the hotel, we all headed up to The Hub's uncle's skiing cabin which wasn't too much farther away from where we had stayed overnight...

We got home yesterday evening, and I have some great photos from the weekend...check it out!

The sweet old little houses by the water...

Apple orchards lined up all the way to the base of the mountain!

It was snowing in the mountains that morning, so we couldn't see the caps that well!


Nice fingertip, dude. Anyway, its the stone church in Lofthus...




How's that for a photo dump? ;)

I'll try and post more even, in the next few days...
