The official 4th of July celebrations in Norway always happens on the last weekend before 4th of July – so that families can come and enjoy it together. My friend April was helping with the organization this year, and I dopped by to see how they were doing.

I came just in time to help with the cleaning up. Perfect timing as ever, because it meant I didn’t have to stand in line with a lot of screaming kids to fight for a ride on the bull.

I managed to stay up for 16 seconds.
