We are back now in Umeå and as usual, Odin is playing with many of his Swedish friends. Cornelia came over to visit and Odin was super excited to see her. So excited he tried to kiss and hug her...she wasn't so sure she wanted so much attention!
Odin has great balance! Papa says he gets it from him. He has no troubles climbing up on the rocking horse and staying up without holiding on while it rocks, but mom wasn't comfortable snapping the picture until he grabbed the bookshelf.

We skied through the woods on a trail called the Hundspår. The trail is used for cross country skiers with dogs. The dogs pull the skiers and they go really fast!

While Papa was at work and Momma was supposed to be watching Odin...
...he climbed up on the dinning room table. Momma swears she took her eyes off of him for only one minute! He enjoyed himself tremendously up on the table; dancing, playing with the candle sticks and shouting at the cars he could see driving by through the window.

We showed off the great bus system... Ant and April wanted to experience extreme cold (and possibly see the Northern Lights), so we took a train up to Abisko in Northern Sweden, 150 miles north of the Arctic Circle!Since it was so far north we only had about 4 hours of daylight and we never saw the sun. We stayed in a log cabin near the base of the mountain. The cabin was quite cozy (= small). But we had fun...we cooked and danced (Odin loves to dance) and even ventured outside for some winter activities.We went for some hikes around the area, it was very cold.
Mom took a break to climb some ice waterfalls. What a mom!
