Awww, Heidi, I miss Norway :)!!! And I love your Crazy Viking Dad; just look at that background...huge, huge sigh. Where are you now?

Stomper Girl said...

I had to enlarge that picture just to make sure; your Dad IS bare-chested in the snow. AM now pretty sure of two things, 1 that Vikings are tough and 2. that I possess NO Viking blood - I needed a coat just to look at that picture!

Ack!

So glad spring (summer??!) has arrived in southwestern Germany. Hope it's so nice when I get to the States next week!

Caffienated Cowgirl said...

OMG - that is classic!

That picture reminds me of my Dad when he was ice fishing in his shorts and flip flops last spring!

So I'm guessing it was a nice day?

Steph said...

That picture is priceless!

Becky at Swirling Vortex said...

Tee Hee! I have a picture of The Man like that -

I'm no Viking. Even if it were socially acceptable I could never do that - I'd be an ice cube!

I had to enlarge the pic to make sure I was seeing what I THOUGHT I saw--a bare-chested dad-man skiing.

How hilariously wonderful!

Mary Beth said...

I'm freezing just looking at that picture! I need to go out and get a dose of the NJ sun:)

Christie said...

You come from hearty Viking stock, that is for dang sure.

Lisa @ Take90West said...

Your dad is the coolest Viking around!

Dawn said...

That's a great picture! I've been spring skiing and I can sort of understand the no shirt thing- it can get pretty warm. :)

LoriD said...

That's awesome! He might be in trouble if the sun goes down, though!

Kyla said...

Hahaha! Excellent.

Hi Heidi! First and foremost, I want to THANK you for congratulating me on my new nursing endeavor. Most times I wonder what the HELL I'm thinkin of, but at others, I know its my calling.

I had to make some sense of having a son with cancer, right?

I'm definitely not a saint, I'm not high energy, I'm not a super Mom, or a super person.... I'm just plain ole me thats trying to make a mark on this sometimes scary earth.

On that note, you all are a gift from God to ME in encouraging me, supporting me and giving me the faith in myself to continue on. I will finish up when I'm 50, thats a scary number in itself. Having friends like Kim-d around makes my life that much easier...

Hope your day is filled with loving friends who support you day and night!

HUGS Mary Lee

Yikes!

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

That looks like the best way to enjoy snow to me--without the cold!

Katney said...

I saw that he was in shorts, but I had to enlarge the photo to realize that he was also shirtless. I often get overheated when I go snowshoeing. I guess that would be a solution.

NOT!

Kellan said...

Your crazy viking dad - HA! That's a great picture.

Thanks for coming by and leaving the nice comment. Have a good day - see you later - Kellan

a true norwegian! ;)

Mighty Morphin' Mama said...

hee hee, only the Vikings and the Canandians go out in the snow with bare skin. When I was a teen, my girlfriends and I would lay out cardboard and garbage bags under our towels and sunbathe during chinooks in February. Fun!

Valarie said...

That is HI-larious!!!!

ALM said...

That is a great, great photo!!

LaskiGal said...

Yikes! Why would people want to enlarge this??? Um. I totally just enlarged it. I wondered how hairy his chest was . . .

Maybe he didn't need a coat . . . you never know.

Mrs. G. said...

You gotta love this crazy Viking!

Kathryn said...

Brr. That makes me cold just looking at it!

Julie Pippert said...

But it's the good kind of crazy!

Hopefully all are doing well.

Amy Y said...

Still, snow!
I'm sure it's in his blood though...

Rima said...

Your dad is one helluva viking!

And also? He looks about seven feet tall in that picture.

Victoria said...

Your Crazy Viking Dad rocks! LOL!

Professor J said...

I heart crazy Vikings.

shay said...

ha ha. too cute!
What a great day. Tanning and x-country skiing, perfect!

Mrs. Annie said...

Um...wow...

No really WOW! What a guy! A tough guy! A cold guy? LOL!

odd facts said...

That's what my Dad does!

Cathy said...

This further convinces me that I am a wuss!

BeachMama said...

And he looks like he is having so much fun. Maybe I should listen to Hubby and take up cross country skiing.

carrie said...

He is quite possibly the coolest cat on the planet!

Hope he didn't get sunburnt though!

Karen MEG said...

Heidi, your Dad is just awesome ;)!!
Now THAT's a true Viking!

Amy said...

LMAO!!!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
