Torsby 2013

I love spending time in Torsby. There's not much there. Not much to do. It's quiet. It rains a lot. Which makes it the perfect place to totally unplug and really relax. We read more books, took naps, watched a lot of WC Track and Field, and just spent time outside. Living in the city I really appreciate a break from the concrete, and it was nice to be able to open the front door and have limitless green space at our door step.
Nonno (Martin's grandfather) spent the week with us as well and got to bunk with Simon. My favorite memory of the week was waking up at 4am to hear Simon, who apparently woke up and crawled into bed with Nonno, telling Nonno about Mike Wazowski (from Monsters Inc.) Keep in mind that Simon was speaking English, and Nonno does not. It was precious.
Simon requested Nonno comb his hair. Not sure where he got that idea?!?
The boys!
We also "discovered"a huge field of wild raspberries growing right behind the house. Simon and I spent a lot of time picking raspberries and enjoying the view from up top.

Simon also loved building fires and helping collect firewood. I think mostly he liked what we ate when build fires. :)
Hole in one!
I would have enjoyed some more sun, we didn't even make it to the beach. But we had a great time and it was nice to just be together as a family and relax - our last vacation before we become a family of 4!!
