For my good friend Jenny Johnson

So my friend Jenny inspired me to start a blog. She does a great job of keeping us all up to date on her life. She is one of those people that has a million friends and yet you always feel like you are a top priority for her.

Anyway - Jenny is Swedish and proud of her heritage. I've been visiting the American Swedish Institute more frequently lately and I always think of Jenny when I go. Currently they have an exhibition of Queen Silvia's Nobel Prize Gowns. Since Greta wants to be a princess (and a robot, and a ballerina and a superhero) when she grows up I thought we should go and see the exhibit.

This picture was taken right before we got in trouble for taking pictures of the dresses. We took about 30 before they finally stopped us. I must admit I did look for a "no pictures" sign and I didn't see one.
Ingrid and I liked this blue dress.

Playing on the steps outside the "castle."

Greta has a sudden interest in castles, princesses and Paris. Everytime we drive by the Catholic Basillica in Minneapolis Greta always says "Are we in Paris now?"
