Möhippa (Bridal Shower)

 

Elizabeth and Mathias will marry August 1st.  We have extended our stay by several days so we can be part of the celebration.  Camilla and Anna planned a bridal shower for Elizabeth and  grooms party was planned for Mathias.  Kurt had a migraine and missed Mathias’s party.  Anders shared the details:  red devils suit with a flabby belly, towed on a rubber ring from town to Ingestrand, selling hotdogs in the park to Arvika festival goers and a game of mini golf.  I joined the bridal shower:

 

We found a dress for Elizabeth at the Red Cross second hand store and tights and bridal veil at a party shop.

We played a game of football golf together at Elizabeth's bridal shower.  Swedes play soccer from birth and my lack of skill was evident.  Perhaps playing barefoot was a mistake.

The owner of the course met us at the last hole.  He was a character. We went a picture to Mathias with this text:  Sorry! Elizabeth has chosen a new groom.  He served Elizabeth a Jagermeister shot wearing a wig.

Elizabeth's task was to sell strawberries in town.  That girl is something else.  Not only did she sell all the strawberries, when she ran out she sold the pair of second hand shoes we had bought her.

    Oh, don’t you tell a story in pictures?!!! I love this rundown–so glad you’re wise enough to extend the stay in order to attend the wedding.

    At this rate, you’ll be extending into forever, though…
