The final days of our trip were spent on the island of Lokholmen, which was about a two-hour ferry ride outside of Stockholm. This was a very neat experience for us! The island was a fairly secluded spot and we absolutely loved the rustic, adventurous experience. Our friends planned a really fun evening for us – a crayfish party! (Check this out to get an idea of what we were going for: https://www.thelocal.se/20140807/swedish-crayfish-party) It was a blast! We also enjoyed the saunas and jumping into the Baltic Sea. We loved getting the privilege to have such unique and fun experiences. It was a true blessing to us to have these guys host us so well.

The following day was our final day and my birthday! I had the longest birthday ever, since it started in Sweden and ended in Denver…it lasted extra long! Mike and I had a breakfast date that morning (boys went to our friends’ house) and then we all enjoyed time at the park, my birthday cake (thanks, E, for making it for us!) before saying goodbyes and heading to the airport. Such a fun way to celebrate my birthday! Thanks, friends, for making it such a memorable one!!
We really enjoyed our time on the Scandinavian peninsula. Seeing our friends made it extra special for us and we were so thankful for that opportunity! Mike did a fantastic job planning it from start to finish and I am SO thankful for him!
