Norway (Warning: Lots of photos!)

The girls with Uncle Sam in Balestand
Yes, we just got back from a family vacation to Norway!

The air was crisp, clean, and cool.  It was light ~21 hours a day.  It was one of the most enchanting places I've ever been!

Just outside the Barony at Rosendal
Matt's parents invited us to join them on this trip, that included a stay at a friend's sheep farm located right on one of the southwestern fjords.  It was an idyllic location and the girl's had a wonderful time playing in the century-old farm house, feeding the sheep, fishing, and touring around.

Aboard the ferry... it was windy!

We spent a (very) little time in Bergen, and then took a quick but picturesque tour of the Sognefjord via the historic Flåm railway and ferry ride, stopping overnight in Balestrand.

Overall, it was a great trip!  The kids traveled very well and we had some great laughs along the way! 
Mollie enjoyed picking flowers around the farm house
