Wake up, clothes on, breakfast and off they go. Sometimes happy, sometimes angry….
It was just crazy. I decided earlier in the week to go for a bike race on Sunday since it was nice weather finally again. Woke up on Sunday morning with snow outside. So the boys decided to ditch the road race and go have fun with the mountainbikes. But when we get to Torslanda, there is no snow….. It just is warm and sweaty in the forest.
On the way home, it started snowing there and this is a local snow storm we passed. Weird weather it was.
Winter Sunday is ice hockey day. Meeting up with other families, skating around, blue skies, hot chocolate and cookies…. Sometimes Sundays are perfect.
A long flight ahead of us. The weather in town is the usual:
Once in Germany (Frankfurt) it looks a lot better. Feels more like spring here with the sun out:
Somewhere over Canada where it looks winter again:
And finally in the hotel in Orlando after a long day. Actually this is a Saturday morning shot when I woke up and the sun was rising.
When you are that old, you live in your own world. And parents are not invited (most of the time).
Because last week we had a snowstorm!!!! And who doesn’t love that. About 20 cm over night. Nobody went to work because all the buses, trams, flights and trains stopped working. You would think so far up north they would be able to handle this a lot better, but….. Anyhow, the kids loved it and got loads of playtime in school as well.
The last couple of weeks it has been extraordinary warm for the time of the year. +7°C or +8°C, sometimes even 10°C … in december ??!! But over the weekend, the quicksilver has been dropping steadily and now it reached -13°C. Just more layers on the bike to work, really.
But not fun for the kids who are still at home and can’t go outside now. Not that Zeb will because he is in bad with influensa (and so is Linda).
Aka birthday present. New MTB shoes. Finally. I’ve been saying for years now that I need a new pair. And I finally found a pair at a reasonable price. The reviews are raving, but of course this is personal as well. So we’ll see, but they feel good those last couple of days.
We start the new year off with …. the normal stuff of weekends: football tournament !!! Get up early, 3 games, a medal and a tired boy later we where home again.
And happiness is … scoring the team’s first tournament goal.
Milla behind the camera/phone. Should let her do that a bit more often.
The temperatures are finally low enough to go ice skating at the outdoor ice rink !!!
And luckily we modified the laundry room a bit. Now we have space to hang everything to dry again as well:
