Hurra for 17 Mai!

Chris got back from Menorca the morning of the 17th of May, otherwise known as Norway’s Constitution Day. I was planning to write a profound and witty anecdote or two about the tradition of bunads (the national Norwegian costume) and the fact that it was Norway’s 200th anniversary of their constitution, but considering I’m about 9 months behind on this blog now and I really just want to get caught up I’ll just say that Yay! Norway has been its own country for 200 years! and Yay! Bunads are awesome and beautiful!
We skipped the morning children’s parade this year so after a nice long nap, we met up with some church friends to watch the folketoget, or People’s Parade.
Love these kids’ faces!
Love this guy’s face too!

More bunads because I love them so much.

Gratulerer med 200 års dagen Norge!
