Pool Party!

Good morning,

We recently got out of the house with friends for the first time since before Covid-19.  We enjoyed the Sons of Norway Pool Party at our friend's home.

It was like "old times" to be able to see everyone again.

We all managed to maintain reasonable distances, although everyone said he/she was vaccinated.
Everyone brought something for the buffet table.  Kjell made fried salmon, I made Cherry Cinnamon Bread with Cognac Icing.  The rest of the menu included our host's famous Bjorn Burgers, beans, fruit, and a large variety of other goodies.  We celebrated a birthday with Norwegian Marzipan Icing cake.  Yum!
Susie, our host, was very happy with the Norwegian/USA flag she found on line.
Very nice!

She had another of our favorite flags displayed on the fence to her pool.  

It was a very enjoyable day in the sun with good friends and good food!

Happy Summer!

What a spread you guys had! My hubby's ex-wife was Norwegian. She could out-cook, out-sew, out-garden, out-chicken-raise, out-drive, and out-think me anyday without even trying. I have wished for Norwegian dna since then but seems all I have is German, and that's no fun! Ha ha. Love the flags!!!
