My Surprise Date!

After a long day of studying at the library, it was finally time to go home.  Mads and I had ordered Chinese food, but we had an hour to kill before it was ready, so Mads planned a surprise date for me.  This wasn’t just a surprise date, because I didn’t know what he was planning, I didn’t even know that there was even going to be a date!  First, he took me to get ice cream (he knows the way to my heart is through my stomach).  And then, he took me to Kaffesalonen where you can rent swan paddle boats!!!

At first when we arrived, I did not realize that this was the place that you could rent the swan paddle boats.  At Kaffesalonen, you can sit in lawn chairs by the water and drink coffee.  It’s such a cozy place.  The day of my surprise date was a Wednesday, and apparently, every Wednesday is Salsa Night at Kaffesalonen, so when we arrived, the place was packed wall to wall with people salsa dancing.

It looked so much fun. If I remembered how to salsa dance, I would have definitely joined!  The music was a bit loud to sit inside and chat, so we chose some lawn chairs on the pier.  It was such a beautiful evening, and that’s when I saw the swans!  Mads asked if I wanted to rent one, and I got so excited!!  I had been wanting to do this all summer!

There I am in our swan.

The whole time we paddled around on the lake, I could not stop smiling and thanking Mads.  It was so perfect!  The weather was actually really nice, and we were out on the lake at sunset, so it could not have been any better!

There was one duck paddle boat, and I was a little jealous we didn’t get that one.  It’s so cute!
