F is for Friday!

Wow. The letter F comes on a Friday. What a coincidence.

I'm continuing in the spirit of yesterday. And put a picture of my Family. Or at least parts of it, and very important parts too.

It's an old picture of my grandmother, my big sis and me. I cant be older than 5. It looks like the 17th of May, Norways Constitution Day.

How can I tell?

1. I am wearing a hat with the Norwegian flag's colours.
2. I am wearing a hat, meaning it't not a warm day, though sunny. May in Northern Norway does NOT mean heat.
3. We are eating ice cream, which is the second most important activity for kids on this day, only beaten by walking in the parade.
4. We are wearing some goofy looking jackets and trousers, probably bought for the occasion, and we are feeling pretty dashing.

My grandmother died 13 years ago but she was the best grandmother one can ever have. This year she would have turned a hundred years. My sister lives 10 minutes away and is a big part of my life and I'm very thankful for that. Family comes first.

Have a lovely Friday!

Strangely, my grandma also died 13 years ago, and would ALSO have turned 100 this year!
