cousins and more fish

Remember how Kalevi always catches huge fish? Well- here are some more. We let the boys play with them again. So fun!

Elliott drew a picture for Kalevi to thank him for all the fishing trips.

It was our last day at the summer cottage and the storm was rolling in, so we just explored and played around their amazing yard. It was soo hot and muggy.

Adam and Ollie checking out the old sleeping house (I think?)

Other than the bird poop, there were some pretty cool things up there...

Finally it started to pour- the boys are watching out the window.
Jarkka and Ollie talking about 5... Ollie loved telling everyone he was "viisi". 
While Adam and I packed everything up, Linc ate lots of Finnish candy and played at the window. We had to pack three days worth of clothes and stuff for the rest of our trip so we could leave our big suitcases in airport storage while we toured Helsinki and Stockholm. It was a fiasco, but I'm glad we weren't hauling giant suitcases on buses! 

Everyone needs an Elliott for a pillow.

Next up: Helsinki & Stockholm

Finland reminds me a lot of Prince Edward Island--just wild greenery everywhere--tons of old interesting homes, wildflowers, and lots of good candy :) Love it!!!
