Finally! I’ve been able to pick a few favorites from this summers best party – ever! Style, class and fun are just some of the words to describe Tonje’s wedding. She is a planner and darn good at it too. Nothing was done half way. Everything was top notch! On top of that there were fun people everywhere. Family, friends and even some people that showed up in disguise. 

Congratulations to my favorite, and only, sister! : ) See you in October!

Finally! I’ve had a chance to start looking at the images from this summer in Norway. The day before my sisters wedding they had a fun get-together at my Dad’s farm for everyone that would be at the wedding the next day, and a few others. I didn’t take too many shots, because I had too much fun visiting with relatives I hadn’t seen for a long time and with Tonje and Nikke’s friends.

They had an amazing seafood soup. rust has amazing chefs, I tell ya! It was out of this world. I can’t believe I don’t have any shots of it.

Nikke and Krille started playing the guitar and the party was on. Everyone were having such a good time and no one wanted to leave. Well, there was that big day coming up, so most people eventually turned in. Here are a few shots.

The relatives are rolling in. Literally! My cousin Frode and his family brought a camper.

The kids loved to play with cousin Frode. Amazing energy!

Stine in the camper.

Breaking out the bubbly. 

Tonje welcoming cousin Torgeir and wife Katrine with Champagne.

“Team rust” – Natalie and Freddan. Awesome work guys!

Some fun conversations.


…more good conversation

Tindra and Anita.

My dad had recently tore down to rebuild a stone wall. Perfect seating for this fun party. They lined up long tables along the long! stone wall. What a nice setting for a party.

The baby is sleeping. Party time!

Beautiful flowers that our Mom brought from Oslo.

Nikke (right) and his friend Krille singing the night away.

Everyone were having fun. Check out the mountains in the background. They reach well above the tree-line and they are always snow covered on the tops.

My sister was surprised by her friends for her bachelorette party (one of them). She was told that one of her friends would come and pick us up to go and look at some flowers for her wedding. Well, we ended up by the ferry and there was her best friend who showed up a day early. Fun fun fun! They had organized a few hours at a pistolclub. We had a blast!!! After learning the basics we got to shoot and no one wanted to be done. Afterwards we went out to a steakhouse to eat. It was a great night! Here is a slideshow and below a few shots.

Anita – SURPRISE!!! No picking flowers today – IT’S PARTY TIME!

Tonje, Anita, Liv Iren & Wenche Synnøve getting ready for some fun at Stord Pistolklubb.

Our guns – don’t ask me specifics. We had guns and we had a blast…that’s all I know.

Per, our instructor, went very carefully through all the rules and routines.

I shot off my five rounds as quickly as I could to get a shot of these girls in action. 

Wenche Synnøve had some trouble with her gun and gave me a chance to get a shot.

That’s right girls, weight on one foot, arm on your hip and give me a sassy look.  : )

We couldn’t get down fast enough to check our lousy scores. : )

No comment. 

Finally it’s picking up. Four black and one white. Great!

Anita, five black ones. Wow!

Liv Iren didn’t have to show us any black stickers. She did good all the time.

Hey little sister. I think I see three black ones. Great!

Look over there.


Watch out! Coming back for more. It wasn’t easy, just look at how far away those little black targets are!

I BEAT MY SISTER!!! HA! I don’t have many chances to brag about winning in sports, so I’m bragging. Tonje is always better than me in any sport. EXCEPT this one! HA HA HA!!! Of course I didn’t stand a chance at winning against Liv Iren (Great score) or Wenche Synnøve, but I beat my sister. HA!

Afterwards a wonderful dinner. Lamb and red wine. Hmm. A nice evening out.

Congratulations Tonje!

It was great to finally see my sister and her family again. I’ll be adding some more shots, but had to take one for her facebook profile. Here she is.
