Winter fun! Weekend road trip.....



This past weekend we ventured off for a little road trip to Sirdal, a ski town about 50 miles from where we live. We did not ski but instead we toured the various ski areas and then went sledding with our baby girl. It was great fun! She loved going down the hills and when done she would say...MORE! MORE! We plan on going back soon.....maybe this weekend again. We want to get our own set of skis....both downhill and XC as we feel we will really get so much use out of them living here. Apparently there are several ski places near, some of which you take a boat to get there through the Fjords! That just sounds amazing to me. We noticed the other day at the port in Stavanger a boat unloading a bunch of ski's and later found out it this the boat that takes you 2 hours from here to a ski town. You can also take a speed boat to Bergen and from there take a train that takes you to some nice places as well. SO much to see here!!!!

We stopped at this cafe and store on the way home from Sirdal this past weekend. The inside of this place was amazing! The gift shop was apart of the mountain and they had some beautiful Norwegian gifts and candles inside. I bought a few things but we definitely need to go back! SO much to see....and buy :)






It is just so lovely here with all the Fjords.  It makes me want to explore more and more.....


I took this with my iPhone and will try and post the ones Micah took with the good camera which I assure you are far better!




This was just part of the drive to Sirdal........so pretty! We have so many more....will do my best to post them this week.

Looking forward to more winter memories here! Love it so much......
