He was still recovering from a late night at school
on Friday - no, not working, partying, and had a hard time waking Sunday morning.
After breaky and a slow start we finally got out the door about midday to go for a "stroll". We headed off to Judarskogen just the other side of Brommaplan and about a 60min walk away.
There is a track in the forest that goes around the lake and we dragged Ty around it kicking and screaming. K slept and M enjoyed being out in the forest. Ty was cold and wanted to know why he couldn't do what he wanted - it was his birthday after all and he should be at home on the couch in front of the tv. The forest is beautiful and I was totally enchanted by it the first few times I walked around this track.
On this gloomy Sunday it was cold and damp and not quite as enchanting......
But the lake was frozen and ice is always a good source of entertainment.
By the end of our walk M decided to walk through a muddy puddle, getting so stuck that she fell right over and soaked herself. Silly of me not to have put her rain pants on her - kids will be kids, but I can only say she was NOT very popular.
Tyler was heading home when I had to disclose the plan - we were to meet Roberth and Anna, Robin, Johanna and Lin at Tulpanens hus at 2.30 for coffee and cake. So much for the surprise! Our timing was good and thankfully Anna was able to drive me home to get clothes for M and the car.
We got back in time to enjoy our coffee and cake. It was a nice surprise for Ty and I was glad to be able to do something to mark his birthday.
Now all I have to do is organise the promised couple of nights away that were his birthday present........
