100 Years Old

The main reason we went to Sweden this time was to celebrate my Grandmother who turned 100 years old on April 27th. She is still going as strong as ever. She is amazing and very energetic. She hears pretty bad, she takes a few naps a day, but except for that, you would never know she was 100!

She got a Telegram from King and Queen of Sweden. Apparently, they consider themselves on first name basis when the person they congratulate is 100. And it is not hand written as it is a Telegram. I put the yellow crowns on there to hide her address:)

A few days later there was a dinner at my uncle’s house where family, friends, some neighbors got together.
