Vigeland Park, Oslo Norway

 Famous bratty boy, this one has been stolen and was recovered just recently

Amazing artwork at this park.  I should have taken more pictures.  There are so many more that I didn't get pictures of

My large Norwegian Family

60 People came out for a family gathering the first Satuday we were in Norway.  I have met a handful of these folks over the years and I was just amazed at how many more relatives I have that I hadnt met yet.  They are all so very nice and I was upfront about having a hard time remembering names because there were so many and because Norwegian names are sometimes a lot different and hard for me to pronounce.  Sorry for that!  How special we felt to have everyone come out just to see us! Thank you for everything!!

Oh and see the handsome looking fella sitting next to me?  He's  the very famous Jack, see next post

Kris, the sheep

This sweet sheep is now named Kris.  Jack promised me that she would be spared from the slaughter house since she was such a nice little beauty and was so cute.  I really doubt he will save her from slaughter but I can dream can't I?  I know you are reading this Linda, please say hello to Jack and everyone else for me!

Holmenkollen, Oslo, Norway

Amazing does not even begin to describe this.  You can't even get the feel of the size of this place by these pictures.  It is straight up and very high, even the grand stands are steep, I was feeling queezy just walking down a few steps.    I will be watching more of this on TV and have a greater respect for any one with the balls to climb up there and ski down it!

Sorry for the delay.......

I got back from Norway on Saturday afternoon about 6 pm and Ray and I went to dinner and I stayed up until about 10 pm which was really 4 am Norway time.  I thought it would be best to stay awake and then sleep in Sunday, which I did until 10:30 am.  Then I took a power nap about 2 pm Sunday for about 1 hour.  I caught up on my sleep mostly but I was still a little out of sorts for a couple days. 

Norway is beautiful is all I can say.  I hope my relatives reading this know what a gem they have there.  I told one of my cousins that he lived in heaven and I really meant it.  I had a great time visiting and meeting new relatives.  They were so nice to accomodate us with lodging and food!  Oh my the food!  I thought for sure I was going to need a tractor to get my fat a$$ home but surprisingly, I lost weight, the food must just be better for you there, not so much junk added to the food like we do here.   

Thank you again to my family, I am so very glad I took this trip especially with my mother.  I have more pictures on flickr which I think everyone knows about now but if not, here is the link again

And off we go

Excuse the thumb print. Ray took this as we were about to leave. I can't update my blog anymore after this because internet on my phone is expensive. I have to turn it off when we leave
