We did the ultra Swedish Midsommar this year. We decorated my parents barn and had a traditional Swedish bufe with herring, knäckebröd, lots of different pies, salmon, new potatoes, meatballs, sausages, cheeses, and of course the mandatory strawberries. All along with strawberry punch.
The barn has been pimped with yellow and blue and fresh birch

Hardly working or working hard?
Eds and Tage were more interested in cutting the flowers up in as tiny pieces as possible

Quick break before the dancing around the may pole starts.
Eds had a blast dancing
So did Vince and gang
Time for a break
Checking out the neighbors horse and three goats takes about an hour with the kids
And finally, a pic of the four of us with almost all of us looking kind of in the camera…
And if you want more details on how we really do celebrate (true) Midsummer here is a short clip:
