Last weekend, Jens and I went back to his hometown to visit his family.
It has been awhile since I have seen them, the last being before I went back to Singapore, so it was nice to see them again (why is Sweden so big?!).
Anyway, it was a belated birthday celebration of sorts for Jens’s brother Viktor who requested for a picnic out in the forest.
Look Ma, I am walking on water.
After Viktor flew his plane for awhile, we made our way to a BBQ area and while the kids were busy climbing trees and taking selfies…
The parents were hard at work to get the BBQ going…
A sidenote to my family: If the wooden shed above looks appealing, an overnight stay can be arranged during your visit this summer. I am very sure Mum would love it. Not.
So after all the hard work by Pappa and Mamma Marklund, the fire was ready to grill the bacon wrapped sausages.
And now we can officially say, Spring is here and we have had our first BBQ of the year.
But of course as you can tell, Spring was only in our heads because we still had to have many layers on.
Although soon, very soon, we can enjoy more days outdoors like this and these perfectly roasted sausages would stay warm for longer.
It was a lovely day to be out nonetheless and probably the best Saturday we have had this year.
Till the next time!
