Anyway today started with the Annual Midsommar Games. Spit the bear was first. Also known as spotta björn. We all got three chances to see who could send theirs flying the farthest.
Next was spara pengar (save money). It was the new addition this year. You have to keep a coin in your butt, run to your bucket and drop it in hahaha. If you drop it you have to start over. Really it's harder than it sounds haha
You have to walk pretty funny to keep it from dropping.
Next we had a competition where we saw who could crumple newspaper the fastest. I came in second on this one!
Agneta and I in the finals for crumpling paper!!!!!! You can see the competitiveness in our faces:)
Lisa and Barbro in the semi-finals ish haha
Lisa's cute outfit:)
Racing with an egg between your legs. This one was SOOOOO hard!
Ball toss. Probably the most normal competition of the day haha
Like I said before, there are stairs EVERYWHERE!
In this game we had to run around 5 times really fast and then try to thread a needle. It's harder when you're dizzy and flustered.
The last game took place by this wishing well. We had to eat a dry cookie and try to whistle. I can hardly whistle without a cookie in my mouth!
For the celebration everyone dances around the midsummer pole (below) and the girls wear flower crowns and white dresses. It was raining so I had on a rain coat too.
I love this picture.
They are so much alike. Looks and personality. I just love this family.
Dresses and rainboots. As you scroll down just imagine this being me pretty much everyday. The stair trilogy...
You can make it Susie!!!!!
At least I'm not as slow as this little snail. Silver lining my friends. Silver lining.
Oh also don't wear rain boots without socks. Luckily Agneta lent me her socks and Barbro bandaged me. Like I said, I love this family.
