On Monday me, kids, my sister and her boyfriend headed to Kålmården. Kålmården is a wildlife park covering 1,5 square km and home to over 600 animals from all over the world. The park has something for the whole family dolphin show, carousel and theater in Bamse world, cable car safari and much more. It is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Scandinavia. Thats why we decided to go now before the big summer holiday weeks start and t will be to crowded. The entrance fee is pretty steep but to be fair we spend 6 hours and didn't manage to see everything. It is a well put together park and worth a visit.
We decided the evening before to bring pack lunch. I mean we are anyways spending lots of money on tickets so no way are they this time overcharging me for food also ( adults points to me...). Taco pie and sallad and cinnamon buns and home made chocolate balls. My sister was worried that it might not be allowed to bring picnic and as she is a very much of a following rules kind of person it was fun to make jokes about how they will have special forces controlling no picnic. We made a lot of these kind of jokes.
We started the day with visiting and saying hi normal not very exotic farm animals such as sheep and goats. And summing up the day in the end Mila put this as one on her top experiences of the day. Filip also enjoyed trying to walk into the goats and pulling their long ears.
In Bamse world we saw a theater, did a couple of carousel rides and Mila was brave enough to hug Bamse after Jacob hugged him and also threatening Bamse that he better be nice to Mila. The sun came out and all dark clouds just disapear which would have been great news if it wasn't for the fact that I decided to change shorts for long dark pants and rain jacket and left sun screen in the car.
I was already thinking about our delicious picnic pie after half an hour in the park. I did get reminded of it as the red union in my back-pack was smelling strong every movement I did.
Such great mood on all of us upon till a point when Filip got too tired but of course didn't want to miss the fun. As happy he is as unhappy he can become when too tired. Over all we had fantastic day all of us.
