Christina found my blog several years ago, soon after her son Vincent was born. Vincent has Down syndrome.
She used to live in Austria, but a few months ago they moved back to her home of Sweden. A fact I remembered when looking into taking the ferry to Sweden. I had no idea how far she was from Helsingborg, but I thought it was worth it to ask her if there was any possibility that we could meet up while we were in Sweden.
I think she said it was about a 2- 2.5 hrs drive for her and yes we could definitely plan to meet! I was so excited to be going to Sweden and meeting a friend that I've known online for several years. She was able to get some information from a friend of hers on what kid-friendly place we could meet at, that was also in walking distance for us from the ferry landing. There was this great pirate-themed playground near the water that the kids really enjoyed.
They had such fun playing with these handcuffs and yelling for 'help!'

My camera was on the wrong setting, but I still like how this picture turned out.
The only picture we managed to get of all us; minus Joe who took the picture :)
Thanks again Christina, for getting together with us!
