March Madness

I thought I hadn't taken many photos over the past month or so but then I looked at the camera recently and realised I just haven't been downloading them, so here's a March rundown, with maybe some February photos as well. 

This last weekend we made some Easter eggs. It was Palm Sunday, but in Finland the kids decorate willow wands and then go around the houses and wish people luck for the year in exchange for sweets. We didn't have any visitors as our house is set off the road, but we had Mouse's Finnish friend come and play for the afternoon. I don't think he'd ever decorated an Easter egg before and seemed to enjoy it. 

Can't turn your back on them for a second

We took a family trip to our favourite museum

Mouse got to practice taking pictures with my proper camera. His subjects are interesting. Though we did have a slight problem on the museum trip with him taking photos of an irate Finn who did not appreciate it and then got annoyed if he took pictures of anything around her. Hard to explain to a 6 year old that you can't take photos of everyone. 

Everyone helped make a cardboard bus, but there was some teething problems playing with it until they decided to overturn it and use it as Santa's sleigh. 

Note the tear, just couldn't figure out how to hold up the bus and carry the toys he wanted

And we had a science experiment one afternoon. Baking soda and food coloured-vinegar explosions. 

Have a good week.
