Midsummer in Ft Hunt

Midsommar in Sweden is next week, and though we've heard that its been the coldest spring in 50 years, it is a huge celebration. I am sorry we won't be in the country yet to participate! But Saturday, we went to Joint American Scandinavian Association's and Finlandia Foundation's Midsommar and Juhannus Celebration in No Va. I thought I'd post a few pictures of the maypole that everyone danced around (including me, looking like an idiot, but Stu & Guzel were too cool.) It was a gorgeous afternoon. We ate a bunch of Scand-ish food, tried to eavesdrop on Swedish conversations happening around us, and watched little kids jump around in potato sacks.
