May 17th, the National Day of Norway

It's been a lovely day in Oslo and in most of Norway today. The sun was shining, people were happy and lots and lots of children walked in the big parade to cheer for the king and the royal family.



The royal family on their balcony, waving to everyone.


After a lot of walking and watching, it's wonderful to relax with nice food and a lovely cake!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NORWAY!

We were just remembering yesterday that it was 17 May and that Norway would be celebrating, and we sent happy 17th May wishes to all our Norwegian friends. Glad you had a good day for the parades.
