We spent the weekend on Sandhamn to celebrate Benjamin's birthday (and Sweden's), and the boys managed to be at least as interested in fishing as they were last year. Amazing. Equipped with life jackets and nets, they stayed busy for hours. Within five minutes, their shorts were soaked, and they also managed to tromp straight into the water without taking off their shoes. Oh well - everything dries... eventually.

Benjamin's birthday dinner was soooo sloooow, but at least the kids' food came quickly. We then waited more than an hour for our appetizers, but ended up with lots of fellow restaurant friends who were in the same boat, so to speak.

I can't believe that this will be our first summer without Sandhamn. The kids are really disappointed, but we just have too much going on. Also, the house we have rented for the past 6 years is not really available, since the owners now have children and want to use it themselves. We have been so lucky to have been there the past summers, and will always think of it as a tiny bit ours...
