It sure does! Come see what we did for Knut's 25th birthday!

Being farmers, we don't have a lot of time for too much vacation, and the time we do take often depends on the weather. In the winter, Kristoffer has snowploughing which is totally unpredictable, and in the spring, summer and fall (the growing season) depends on the weather and the temperature. Like this year, I had planned a long weekend down south in Europe in the end of May, thinking all the spring work would be done by the start of May, but ohh no!

The only vacation we surely get every year is from a long weekend to a week on our mountain fishing spot, about 2,5 hours drive from home.

We've been coming here since I was 2 years old like Liv is now, and it's so much fun seeing her be able to do the same things I did :) Here is a picture spread of this year's 4 amazing days on the high mountain at 1150 meters above sea level, fishing, hiking and relaxing :)

Since we started, our level of fanciness has increased to now bringing a power supply to vacuum pack and freeze the fish right away! :D How cool and super fresh!

The weather varies--it poured down a lot, so the little sheep tried to hide under the bathroom roof. :)

One day we made food in the fireplace :)

Time for a bath! :D As you can tell from the snow on the sides of the road, this was NOT a hot bath.. Hehe
