Lars 06/08/1994

 My son Lars is turning 17 today.
He will celebrate his birthday  tonight at a party with more than 30.000 scouts from all over the world in Rinkaby Sweden. He has packed and is ready to go.  The closing ceremony will be tonight. After that they will travel home by bus. Tomorrow at 17.00 I can finally hug him again.
1937 World Jamboree in the Netherlands
My Dad (Lars) as a scout .
He looks a lot like my Lars. How I wish he could have witnessed his grandson going to the World Jamboree in his home country Sweden.. But somehow I think he does. He was so proud that his grandson enjoyed scouting as much  as he did when he was young.
My boys. Lars and Felix.

Happy birthday sweetheart♥
