There is nothing quite like Syttende mai in Norway! The pictures below are missionaries and friends who joined us to celebrate Norway’s Constitution Day. The weather was perfect and the day could not have been better! We spent the afternoon at the mission home grilling hotdogs and playing games. Hurrah for Norge!
Friends from Utah! Dr. Garry and Debra & Dr. Wilson and Lola.
My sister Joy and some of her children ended their tour of Norway celebrating with us!
Sister Stocks, Sister Morris, and Sister Sorensen……all named Madeline/Madeleine!

And KUBB, a mission favorite!
And a good time was had by all!
Happy Syttende mai Norway!
What a special, treasured time! Thank you for including these wonderful missionaries in the culture and traditions of this land. How I wish Eldste Nathan B Johnson could figure out what our families’ bunads look like!
Sister Johnson – tell us where your family is from in Norway and we will help you figure out what their bunad would look like. We have several books and can find it for you.
I loved looking at these pictures. What a wonderful celebration! It is always a treat to get on your blog and see what fun things have happened since the last time I looked. Thank you for your love that is so evident to all of the missionaries serving in Norway. We see the joy of that love in the expressions of these wonderful young men and young women.
