A Very Happy Mother's Day in Finland
We had such a great Mother's Day weekend! The Finnish flags were raised all over the country and everything except the flower shops were closed. That's the way it should be, right? The sun was shining and we were able to spend most of it outside. Translation: The boys are covered with more bumps and scrapes than usual. The trees are all getting leaves and flowers are blooming. It's been so long since we've experienced a true Spring, and we are loving it.
Did I tell you I have a new bike? I bought it from my lovely neighbor, who (sadly) is moving in a couple of months. Steve was kind enough to attach a basket and a bell for me. The basket is so great! It just pops right off and doubles as a little shopping basket. And then you can just pop it right back on easy as pie. Genius.
