We have spent the last few days in the eastern part of Sweden, at our friends the Dunlops' place in Nyköping. We've had absolutely perfect summer weather - it's been sunny and hot (yay!) and the kids have enjoyed their swimming pool over and over again.
Yesterday we did Kolmården Zoo, a park I had never visited before and one of the more well-known ones here in Sweden.
Although we saw elephants, zebras, gorillas, tigers etc - the most exciting part was the mini-zoo where the kids could go inside the enclosures and pet the goats, pigs and sheep. Linnea and the pigs:

We had a lovely husmanskost (=traditional Swedish cuisine) lunch, with great views:
And of course we saw their famous dolphin show, very nice:
There was also a huge playground where we spent quite some time:

And Linnea met Bamse (a popular Swedish cartoon character) and we saw a theater at Bamse-land:
All in all, a very nice day!
