Perfect Sweden

Olivia, Joar, Love, Lisa

We went to Sweden this weekend to visit Lars and Ulrika and family. The weather was amazing! We have, of course, been to their house many, many times, but this was the first time we have gone when the weather was so perfect for being outside. All of the flowers and trees were blooming and it was just a wonderful time to eat some food and hang out with their family. Ulrika made Flying Jacob for dinner which is this awesomely unexpected Swedish dish of chicken, whipped cream, ketchup, bananas and sunflower seeds or nuts. It was so tasty! Then she made a rhubarb pie/crumble that was so tasty. Ulrika used rhubarb from her garden. She is definetly one of the funnest cooks I know! We always love going to their house. Olivia had a great time with Lisa. They are really close in age and make a cute and funny pair!
