Much Ado About Monday {No. 83}

Happy Sunday!

Thanks for joining us for our 83rd Much Ado About Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We've had so much fun carving pumpkins, going to the zoo, and catching up after our awesome trip to Norway earlier this month. I thought I'd share a few photos from our trip! 

When my husband said he had a business trip in Norway, I jumped at the chance to tag along. It was our first trip alone together since we've had kids, and very long overdue! Since his business was in Trondheim, we started there. It was such a beautiful city, overlooking one of Norway's largest fjords. We rented bikes and went to the highest outlook point over the city, and enjoyed the gorgeous fall colors. Our hotel was voted the best breakfast in Norway. No joke, it was seriously the largest breakfast buffet I've ever seen in my life, and my favorite item had to be the smoked halibut. Wow!

We drove the inland route to Trollstigen and camped in a cabin for a few days. While we were there, we drove that crazy curvy road, found a great hiking spot, and enjoyed the outdoors. The hike was more of  rock climbing in my mind... but worth it for the amazing view!

On our way back to Trondheim, we drove the costal highway. It was pretty windy, so we were able to see the huge waves crashing along the rocky coast. 

Since our flight home went through the Amsterdam, we extended our trip so we could spend the day in the city. We enjoyed a boat tour of the canals, shopping at a farmer's market for food and gifts to bring home, and exploring the city on foot. I was super bummed that we missed the Ann Frank House, because it was closed for Yom Kippur. But the Dutch apple pie definitely made us feel better about it ;-) And of course, after the long flight home, it was so great to come home to the kids! Surely a trip we wont forget! 

This week, Emily shared four fantastic Halloween printables, and I shared Miss Emmie's Halloween costume. She makes the cutest little bunch of grapes!
