the eric update - day 1982: norwegian holiday fun at norskedalen!

on a recent trip to norskedalen, we did a lot more than meet a horse named ragnar.

the lefse and krumkake ladies ( and gentleman ) sure enjoyed finding out they were making food for *an* odin!

a cantakerous reindeer. mighty ornery he was, definitely not rudolph.

and they even provided marshmallow, chocolate and graham crackers, and a hot fire for making s'mores! and hot chocolate to boot!

and, of course, santa claus was in the lodge.

for the very first time, odin decided that he wanted to sit on his lap and chat about this and that.

no offense to santa but in the past he has kind-of freaked odin out :-)

no trip to norskedalen is complete without a ride on a horse-drawn wagon! made even funner when they get going in a quick trot.

odin really is much more excited to sing christmas carols with the elderly lady on the pump organ than he appears ;-)

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
