Solvang trip

Part two of my travel escapades include a fantastic trip with wonderful friends to a little Danish town here in California called Solvang.  It's a frickin' cute town. We walked all around town and ate lunch, complete with aebleskivers, before we headed to wine country for some tastings.  Yes, this was the second weekend in a row of wine tasting for me and Ryan, and no, we weren't complaining.

Here are a few picture highlites of our fun little weekend getaway.

That is supposed to be a recreation of the Danish mermaid behind us.  We have crazy faces in the picture because the sun was shining so brightly.

Yay for wine tasting!


Life size chess, anyone?


And you can't go to Solvang and not ride the standing clog.  Ryan may or may not have almost fallen off. (hint: he did)

And we ended our fun little journey at this gem: Andersen's pea soup.  It was delicous and pea-soupy.


It was sad to see our friends leave, but we are so glad they got to spend a fun-filled week with us!

Sidenote: I will resume my usual crafty blogging soon! 


  1. The Himalayas, home of the snow, is the most impressive system of mountains on the earth, and for centuries the setting for epic feats of exploration.
