Klara vappen everybody!
I love bringing some traditions from Finland into our Aussi life. So as 1st of May was getting closer, we decided to throw a little party with Emma. 1st of May, Vappu (what it's called in Finland), is a big celebration. People get out their barbeques and have picnics, we enjoy special food, sima (a drink with lemon, sugar and yeast), munkki (a bit like doughnut) and tippaleipä (there's nothing to explain that). There's balloons, masks and streamers, everyone is happy and festive.
So why not bring a little of that festivity in our normal boring day-to-day. We had a fun morning with friends, eating treats and decorating animal masks. It's little traditions like these that colour our everyday life. Thanks all you lovely ladies for coming over and bringing your kids for a play. Thanks for making our vappu very special!
