Getting muddy

Getting muddy, originally uploaded by Jonne Naarala.

Mud flying in the air and muddy clothes are a real sign that the spring has started! Our boys are taking all fun out of puddles and muddy water. It is so much fun to spalsh it everywhere and drive the toy truck through it in full power.

Kicksled fun

Kaapo’s godfather Tommi brought an old kicksled for us. I and Tommi fixed it and now it is in the working condition and has a new red paint on it.

It really moves fast and is very handy here in countryside when you want to go from place A to place B in the winter time.

We are having new snow at this very moment. I am not that happy about it because it seems that we are going to have spring time in June or so. Sigh.

And they found the treasure…

Treasure hunting at Kaapo’s birthday party using photos as clues.

They were so passionate for this game that I was smiling all the time when they runned from place to place. I think they enjoyed a lot! The whole party was a real success. Everybody had a nice time and Kaapo felt like a king in his parties. Now he is five years old and a big boy already!

Playing Afrikan tähti board game

Afrikan tähti (“The Star of Africa”) is a Finnish board game designed by Kari Mannerla originally in 1951. You can find more information of the game here.

We really enjoy to play this came. It is easy enough for 5 year old child (maybe for younger too; Tiitus is playing here assisted by his mother) and interesting enough for adults too. It is a real classic!

Pirate captain

Kaapo bought a cool pirate captain costume with the money he got from his godfather at his birthday parties. When I got back home from work I was really surprised how good-looking this outfit was. And I am so happy that the dagger is a soft one!

Jump, jump, jump!

We got a trampoline yesterday. It took about two hours to assemble it but it was actually a nice job with my wife. Kaapo is very thrilled about it and it is actually very good work-out for adults too. If you jump something like 15 minutes you really feel it!
