Friday Photo Flashback ~ Norway

Friday Photo Flashback
It's another Friday Photo Flashback when I link up with Alicia of More Than Words.  We get to share  pre-digital camera photos.  It's always fun to pull out my boxes of photos to find a few to share.

The photos I posted were from a trip to Norway in 1985.  My parents were going to visit many of our relatives and so I got to tag along.  I figured Mom and Dad were fluent in the Norwegian language so it would make things so much easier.


This photo was taken in Trondheim, Norway.  From left to right is my cousin Kjell's sister Hildur, Tante Agnes, me, Tante Haldis and my mom. I was amazed at how energetic these ladies were.  We actually hiked up hills to get to an ice cream shop.  I know we worked off all the calories.

This is my mom and dad overlooking the family farm in Sumstad, Norway.

Sumstad is my maiden name.  Here I am with Dad and Mom in front of the town's sign.

Maybe you have some photos you'd like to share?  It's not too late to link up with Alicia at More Than Words.

Blessings and love,
