Happy 4th of July

This year's 4th of July was a quiet affair. The house was full of jetlagged people - so we just hung out in the backyard, barbecuing and just enjoying being back.

I had ordered t-shirts for the kids from my favorite t-shirt store, Life is Good, and we took pictures of the kids in front of the flag, like we do every year. That was about what we had energy for. I was sound asleep before the neighbor started the firework crackers on the street outside.

Speaking about the flag - when we checked out our hotel room at Arlanda Sky City, we had a view over the shopping area where they have a flag "wall". We happened to have our room right above the American flag. My daughter happily turned around and told me - "Look mom, there it is, our flag"...
