Birthday breakfast and KraftwerkFriday, August 17, 2012
Thank you for all the birthday wishes! I had a splendid weekend, going to a festival and celebrating the birthday all weekend was a great combination. As usual we had plenty of fun, with the music being just one part of the fun puzzle, the rest is hanging out with friends. Also my 13-year old daughter was finally old enough to join us and luckily she doesn't mind (at least for now) hanging out with grown ups. On the other hand I'm not sure she always sees us as proper grown ups. When I asked about it afterwards she said that we weren't like ordinary grown ups, we were kinda special (special as in odd I think!).
We started off with a birthday cake breakfast. Since it was a festival we had to have the party early, hence the breakfast. The cookies in the front with raspberry jam is a classic Swedish butter cookie that I will post the recipe for in another post.
Stella is replenishing her fuels for a third day of music festival.
Parts of our gang.
In an inspired moment we decided to emulate a Kraftwerk cover. I don't think a photo that I've posted on Facebook has gotten this much likes before so maybe we had some success, hehe? You be the judge. The daughter was the talent behind the camera.
Yes Kraftwerk put on a 3D-show. Pretty awesome.
Kraftwerk was a truly a mind blowing experience, unlike any other concert I've been to. All the visuals and the fantastic sound put the audience in an almost meditative place. It was a concert that I never wanted to end. The critics raved too afterwards.
