Hipp hipp hurra for 17. Mai!! :-)

After getting the best invitation to come celebrating the 17th of May we of course had to go, and it is was a good time!

"Camilla" was wishing everyone welcome before we paraded (gikk i tog) around the gras in the middle of the buildings a few times, hummed to norwegian songs and shouted
Hipp hipp hurraaaaa!!! Hurra hurra hurraaa!!

After all the activity we enjoyed the elementary food on a day like this, pølse i brød, hot dog :)

Karen is just very fond of kids! :-)

Then we had some games and I participated in a potato, bag-jumping and go around the bottle for 20 times -relay race (stafett)

Here I have to see myself beaten ;)

Posing ;)

After the games and a good service (gudstjeneste) by the Norvegian priest Stein Vangen we went to the official celebration hosted by the Norwegian embassy, at the Mandarin hotel, Grand ballroom.

Here together with the official representative of the Philippine government and the Norwegian ambassador.

When home and about to open the door,
"Oh no! Where is the key??"
3 hours later we are again home and happy we were able to retrieve the spare key on a short notice! :-)))

Very relieved!
