Yesterday was Martin's Birthday and we decided to celebrate by going to our local amusement park, Gröna Lund, here in Stockholm.
Martin and Wille went hard core and got wrist bands so they could go on as many of the attractions as often as they wanted while I carried the bag and enjoyed the sun from benches below. I did go on a few of the rides and offered to go on the free fall which Martin declined. But so did Wille :)
Here Martin and Wille are on the Extreme. Yikes. I so didn't want to go on that one and apparently Martin wished it would stop about half way through.
There was a little bit of waiting in line but even though the weather was gorgeous it wasn't too bad. Wille went with his friends the day after school ended and that day the lines were crazy!
And here Wille and Martin are riding the Broom. This one was great, very Harry Potter, very smooth and really enjoyable. I went once as well. Too short a ride though.
This is a favorite, the Jetline! I didn't count how many times Martin and Wille went ( I went once) but it's a fun ride. Check out the boot leg video below that Wille shot (cameras were not allowed out...my junior delinquent...) Not for the faint hearted though. It makes me a little queasy watching it... The view that you can catch glimpses of is pretty amazing. Stockholm really is a beautiful city!
Join us for a ride if you dare! That's Martin going "yahoo!" there at the beginning :)
That's Martin and Wille there in the top left corner. Haha. After so many gos Wille knew exactly where the camera was.
Fun family day!
