***Sweden: July 12 ,2007***

Today was my mom's (grandmother's) birthday. She turned 76, and looking at her it is amazing she is even here since she had a stroke and heart attack earlier this year. Except for a walker to aid her on longer walks (which she takes frequently) you would not be able to tell what she has gone through. She is a tough cookie! I managed to not get one single picture of her this day, probably because she never sits still, she is always up and about making sure everyone else is comfy! She had made awesome smörgåstårta, cookies and buns. She also had a yummy lemon birthday cake.

Vilken mysig och trevlig tid i på Gotland ni verkar ha haft med mycket vänner och släkt. Måste varit underbart att få träffa alla och krama om alla.
