As we are building a new summer cottage, the old cottage is used by the builders during the weeks, and we haven’t felt that homely there – and thus we decided to go to my parents’ summer cottage to celebrate midsummer.
There was also another practical reason. We left Aapo and Niilo there for a week and took only our youngest, Seela, back with us to Espoo. As we are still working during the days, this is win-win-win for us, the boys, and the grandparents. Sanna will pick them up enroute to Taivalkoski; she’ll leave with Seela on Friday for a week and I continue working in Espoo.
Weather has not been very nice during this summer, there has not been actually a single really warm day in Finland. The same trend continued throughout the weekend – except briefly on Saturday when the sun shone warmly for a couple of hours. Other than that, we had great time. A lot of sauna, the usual midsummer bonfire, and good discussions with people.
