Happy November: Town and Country

I'm on break with the kids. Here's a little glimpse of Stockholm Town and Country this week.

View over Kungsgatan

Hallwylska Museum

Hotorget (translated: Hay Square)


Rosendals Tragård for Pumpkin Carving
(With friends, Heather and Mathilda, Max and William and gang)
Around town:
1) Walks, talks and "fika's" (coffee/hot chocolate breaks) just us or meeting friends.
2) Hallwylska Museum: "Hallwyleen" is a special Halloween tour for kids with spooky surprises at the Hallwylska Mansion in central Stockholm. There is currently a Downton Abby exhibit, too.
3) Hötorget Square is perfect for movies (Yes, plural: we've had our fair share of cold and rain.) and place to pick out the perfect pumpkin, as well as, chanterelle mushrooms.
4) Visit Rosendals Tragård (here and here) for a coffee, to participate in a course or to just to stroll.
Book ahead for their pumpkin carving in their greenhouses! There are year around programs. Today, Nov 1, for example: Wreath making with their Garden Experts, Maria Berg och Christer Johansson.
5) We love to attend the Museum Art programs for kids. These are two on our current list:
Modern Museum, here, Kid's Fall Break Photography Program and
National Museum Kid's, here, Atelier: Make your own collection. (For more, click here)

Little brother gives great support to hilly areas while inlining.

Country:
... home and easy days of creativity, Henry walks, togetherness and visitors!
(Yes, we had snow (here) and have actually made our first ice lanterns (how-to, click here)!)

Note: Thinking of other Towns and Country over the Atlantic: I've been peeking in at Cupojoe for NYC photo updates all week. Cupojoe, you've been my "pinterest fairy godmother" this week. Thank you! and one more: Whoopie!" Today, I learned that Willowday was named: Top 25 Creative Blogs because of you! I can't tell you, readers, how touched I am by this nomination, award and your votes! Thank you so much!
