The first day of January came and went two weeks ago, but the day will be remembered in these pictures.
January 1st was spent outside in glorious sunshine (and a somewhat biting chill that snuck up on you when you entered the shades).
Hubby, P, my sister and E went iceskating while mom and I took the little ones (A and F) for a stroll so that they could nap. (F fell asleep quite fast, but A stayed awake until we ventured back to the iceskaters an hour later.. then she fell asleep...)
We joined the flood of tourists and other norwegians out enjoying the sun, and walked around Aker brygge.
At the end of the pier (brygge) there was a lovely view out to the fjord, with the low sun shining brightly.
And turning around, we had a good view to Akershus festing (to the right) and the Oslo rådhus (to the left).
So far 2017 has been a mix of sunny, almost Easter-y days and very foggy or rainy days. Not much snow, and the snow that has come has either rained away shortly after falling - or frozen to ice..
