Mother's Day in Sweden

Needless to say I was allowed to sleep in before being served breakfast in bed on a lovely tray with a vase of fresh flowers and the newspaper, followed by two delightful children and their father who come in to tell me how much they love me.

Yeah right!! Fat chance.
I won't bore you with the details of my reality....

But we did get up and get our bikes sorted out for our premiere bike ride. Ty had Kieran on the seat on the back of his bike and I had Makaila in the bike trailer, or the Chariot.

We headed up and over the killer Traneberg bridge to Robert & Sandee's cafe in the old house run by the kayaking association - also known as Kafe Kajak. The kids loved the bike ride and with legs like jelly and flushed cheeks (me at least) we met Yvonne and Yvette and enjoyed a Mother's Day lunch.

It was a little cool when the sun dipped behind the clouds but the view is magnificent and the food is pretty damn good too!

Sandee and Robert are really trying to make it a cafe with a difference, give it both a wholesome and an international feel and have succeeded in providing a completely organic menu.

Robert was working but Sandee was at home enjoying the weekend with the boys.
After lunch we wandered around the shoreline, fed some bread to the ducks and the kids stripped off their shoes, socks and pants and played on the little beach in the water.

As always we dragged them away kicking and screaming, not wanting to go home....
