Saturday snapshot


Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce @ AT Home With Books.


Today's picture was taken a month ago. Me, my sister and my son went shopping and in the picture we decided to take a break. So it´s me and my son in the picture and you can see the royal castle in the background. It does not look like it but it was actually a really warm day. We have had some really hot and humid weather this summer. 


Okey some explanation about this castle since I´ve got a lot of comments wondering where it is. This is the royal castle in our capital Stockholm, Sweden. The royal family of Sweden used to live here but now they don´t very much, but I do think they have some private areas for their own uses. But mostly the castle is open for tourists who comes to Sweden and want to check out the royal family´s home.  


And before you ask, I do not live next door to this place. This is in the central of the city and I live in the sub-burn. And it takes me about 30 min to get here but since all the best stores are located here.... you might get why I go here to shop. I mean the sci fi bookstore is located here and they have also a lot of fantasy books in English so this is my favorite place on this earth! Not that I buy books from there all that much because it is way more expensive than online.

Hmmm. You must not be in France since you're on the grass. Were you in London?

Babies and shopping don't always mix but it looks as though the two of you faired pretty well for this outing. :)

Shopping near a royal castle sounds like fun to me!

Sounds like a fun trip (other than the heat and the humidity). Which royal castle is it?

Cecilia said...

Alyce: It is the royal castle in our capital stockholm, sweden :)

Vicki: Actually I had to take the subway, this is in the central of stockholm and I live in the sub burn so it takes about 30 min to get there but if you want to shop in all the fun stores than this is where you go. Where I live we only have the usual stores that is everywhere like H&M.... And I wanted to go to the sci fi bookstore!
