Well here it is again Midsummer in Finland. My family and I had a BBQ on the patio and then sauna later in the evening. It was cooler today than it had been the past week. We got some rain last evening so that helped to cool things down a bit. Still need to do some work in the backyard as it looks like a jungle out there. Soon will be summer holiday!

Finally I have made contact with my first cousin once removed and her daughter, my second cousin, both living in Alaska. I am lacking information on this side of the family and it will not only be great to be communicating with my relatives but also great in being able to fill out the family tree a bit more!

Happy May Day to all. Today just sitting back and relaxing at home eating donuts and drinking sima. Tiina and the boys went to Helsinki and to Kaisaniemi to listen to the choir and the Humpsvakar orchestra. Niki & Alexi sold their remaining May Day flower pins.
