To Norway for a day

 

This afternoon, the kids and I went to a Nordic Heritage and Crafts Fair put on by local chapters of Daughters of Norway. I’m of (half)Norwegian descent, so I was super interested in attending! Although I grew up surrounded by plenty of Norwegians, I didn’t necessarily learn a lot about the culture aside from Lefse and lutefisk.

It was great!

I couldn’t resist the Uff da t-shirt, so one of those came home with me. 😉
