Hey guys! Thanks for all your emails and comments - it is a lot of fun reading them. Sorry Thursday morning was a bit hectic and hopefully that will be the last of it. Tenny - I am excited that you now know how to play Mexican Train (try not to beat Grandmamman by too much). Samantha - hope you are having fun with Zoe and Gabby - make sure you give Grandmamman some rest too.

Yesterday was a long and fun day. I didn't get to sleep until 2 in the morning, which means that I was probably up for 38 hours. Norway is beautiful. The air is so clean and crisp and there are so many trees and wonderful landscapes. The fjords (long narrow bodies of water with steep sides that were carved out by glaciers) are amazing and the buildings and houses are very picturesque. After I unpacked, freshened up a bit, and said hello to mommy, I went walking around a bit while she attended another session of her conference. The center city of Trondheim is very pretty. I walked around and they are having a Festival this week honoring Olav - the founder of the city in 977. I also walked to and around the Nidaros Cathedral. Here are some of the pictures I took as I was walking:

 
 



We then went to a reception in the Archbishop's Palace, out to dinner and then met up with some of mommy's co-workers. All in all, a very good day.

Love you all...
