Here’s a tilefelding utvaly (random assortment) of photos from August that I didn’t get to blog about in detail.
Another awesome playground we found at Ekbergparken
This park was recently made famous in the NYT, when the 52 Places Traveler (Keep Oslo Weird) went to the same sculpture park and mentioned this sculpture, Fideicommissium, of a woman squatting and peeing off in the woods.
We saw the Viking shop museum. Ada was not impressed.
A pretty decent photo of all of us and the Gilheanys on the roof deck of our apartment, minus Ada hiding off camera.
Some of the seats in the buses have 4 point harnesses for little kids and the bottom of the seat folds down so that a little kid can sit there. Ada loved it, and wants every seat on the bus to be like this.
Hanging out at the Royal Palace. I found the tour to be super interesting. The modern Norwegian Monarchy is only about 100 years old, and the people voted to create a constitutional monarchy. It is the official residence of the king and queen, and he meets with the leaders of the government every Friday in an amazing conference room.
A pretty cool culture festival we went to at the harbor.
A couple of extra outtakes from Maddie’s first day of school:
Maddie’s classroom. That’s her teacher, Ms. Willums on the far left.
Ada at her school playground.
The fountain just outside our apartment that the girls stop to play in on the way to and from school.
Ada all dressed up in her rain suit.
Looking back, all of these photos seem like they were taken so long ago. Time is flying by, and I need to learn more Norwegian.
