Puppy saying goodby to Mom in her new favorite outfit!
The worst part of a trip is saying goodby. This particular goodbye is one that marks the longest time I will ever have spent apart from my mom. It was also so hard to say goodbye to my sweet grandma, so happy she got to come!! This morning we had a nice trip concluding breakfast before we headed off to Arlanda. The checkin went quickly, too quickly... then they were gone. Maybe I shed a tear or two.. Maybe ;)
My grandma and mom arrived on Thursday the 10th in the evening and left on Sunday the 20th, today. With just 9 of those being full days, we accomplished A LOT!
Just some of the things we did:
- Drottningholm Palace
- Walking in Gamla Stan (so many times!)
- Gripsholm Castle
- Driving to Ormsjö
- Saw the birthplace of my great-grandpa
- Visiting/Meeting Relatives in Harnosand, Enskede, Solna & Nockeby
- Swedish Ballet
- Nordic Museum
- Archipelago Boat Tour
- Some Crazy Driving Experiences
- Vasa Ship Museum
- Fika in Gamla Stan
- Royal Palace
- Lunch in a 700 year old prison & lunch at a bunch of great places in Stockholm!
- Two hockey Games
- Went to Mass at a Swedish Kyrka
- Many Games of Rummy
- A few trips to ICA
- Thousands of Pictures
- Endless Memories
I am probably forgetting a few things. As you can see, we were very busy & did as much as we could in the time that they had here!

The next time I see my mom will be March/April, I hope it's not too hard!! I am so grateful for Skype, and her, and my grandma.
What a wonderful trip!
Look what grandma got me!! :) Yay finally I have one!
