This morning we woke up to bright sunlight. Yes!! I am in such a better mood when the sun is out. Espen left at 8:30 to play a football game, and Anders headed off to a friend's house, but Gaute and Johan and I decided to take a walk along the river close to our house. Johan brought along a friend, and they had a fun time walking and talking. It felt so good to be out in the sunshine!

Yesterday I made reservations at a hotel in Gothenburg, Sweden for Gaute and I next weekend. We haven't gone away alone for a long time, and we want to take a little mini-break. We were first thinking that we would fly somewhere, but we decided that it would be easier and cheaper to drive down to Gothenburg. It's only about 3 hours away. I looked up on my handy Trip Advisor website the best hotels in town, and discovered that a new, really cool-looking design hotel just opened there last summer, and it's ranked as the best. So, we will be staying at the Avalon Hotel next Saturday night. I'm really, really excited. I love staying at cool hotels, and this one looks really cool. I booked a deluxe room since we, ahem, saved so much money by not buying a plane ticket. Plus, we're only staying for the one night. Gothenburg has been getting a lot of press lately as the cool place to go, so it should be fun. Plus, we can stock up on cheap Swedish food on our way home!

Sounds like a great time! Very exciting.

Thanks for pointing out Trip Advisor when I was there last Fall -- it's been great. Found our hotels in Hawaii there - it was right on.
