A Sunday Walk to the River

Yesterday I shared with you one of my recent favorite photos. As I told you I had plenty of photos to share and here is the rest of the story from that day:

We decided, that since we had the day off – and since we had completely been slackers the day before – it was a really good idea to take a walk to one of our favorite spots by the river. Ferdinand (the dog) had never been down by the river bank, so it sounded like a fun idea to see if he liked the water (he SO did!).

the house
As we walked by the house I captured it against the blue sky and saw all the snow on the ground and remembered how the house had shaken as it fell down from the roof a few nights before. MT said it sounded like thunder.

the river
It was a nice little walk, filled with lots laughs as MT slid and fell (over and over again) on the icy road through the woods.

The walk was also filled with quite a few small conversations between the two of us about this and everything (the best kind of conversations if you ask me).

Ferdinand loved the river Jumping the rocks
Ferdinand was all over the place smelling smelling smelling. And when we came down to the river bank he was just scooting from side to side, dipping his pows down in the cold water and seeming absolutely happy (and a little bit crazy).

the boot MT and the river
MT threw a few sticks and rocks into the water (as usual) and I just enjoyed watching the river, the woods and my boys. Thankfully I brought my camera and snapped away as we walked. Cherish the little moments – that is what I want!!

the woods
Once back home MT gave Ferdinand a warm bath. Later there were comic book reading and recharging of batteries. We all felt so much happier now than before we went outside.

Dyrsku’n – a fair

funatfair5 (1 of 1)

We went to a fair on Saturday.  It’s called Dyrsku’n (dyr = animal) from the beginning when farm animals (horses, cows etc.) where more important then carousels and cutlery.

The fair is local to us and one of the biggest fairs in Norway. We were one of ca. 30000 visitors that day – about 70000 visitor in total for the weekend – and that is in a village of ca. 2500 people. I can remember going to the fair every single year when I was kid; a great September tradition in our family.

funatfair3 (1 of 1)MT went there for his first time last year. Now he was eager to get past the gate another time. There is a lot to see, a lot to buy and a lot of people. This time we even took time to watch the horse show. :)

MT was most interested in the amusement park part of the fair, though – and he went through his tickets like fire (he only had 6 and then his cousin got two so no wonder it went fast). But he got to do what he wanted to (at least almost, because he was too small (thankfully) for a few of the larger carousels and one cost more money than I was willing to pay).

driving a bumper car

Here he’s driving electric car and below he is in the Ferris Wheel, both with his cousin. He also got to walk through the fun house and jump on a trampoline (his all time favorite last year – this year I think it was the ferry wheel that topped the list).

boys in snow

friends in snow

The kid next door (more or less) visited us tonight. And we had fun playing in the snow in the evening :) I had to join them because of the darkness (it was scary tigers in the forest!) – and ended up with a nearly shoveled drive way and a big smile on my face from spending 1.5 hours OUTside. I loved it; that kind of took me by surprise and I look forward to other nights like this with some of MT’s friends over. It so great to have the snow here, it’s a whole lot – but manageable (at least after a few days of getting it out of the road….)

Anyhow. It’s late. Better find my bed. Good Night!friends in snow

I’m not loving the blitz at these photos, but I had to shot them quickly because the boy moved fast AND it was snowing on my camera(!) Next time I hope to get more photos of them too!
