12 days ago we (my mom, brother and I) drove 4 and half hours to Middle Finland where my grandparents live. I had great time even if I was a little bit suspicious first. I didn't have lot to do but I went to graveyard collect some beautiful names, I looked around the second hand shops which are so good and so cheap when you're not in the big cities. I went to swim even if I don't like it and I just spent time with my grandparents, brother and mom.
Last Thursday I went to summer camp because my friend Sirja asked me to go there. I didn't know anyone except Sirja and her husband Jukka before but I had great time near God. I could have spent there some more days. Sadly I didn't take pictures in the camp.
Next I'll put in some photos I've taken - there's quite lots of them. I don't like to explain my photos too much (or maybe I'm just too lazy) but if I think they need explanations I'll write something. Enjoy!
This first photos I took when it was quite boring just sit in the car and do nothing. I can't even read while we're driving because I'm getting sick. The first one picture is my mom driving her loveliest car!
As you see it was a bit boring some times and after I took pictures about everything else there was only me and Aku left to take pictures about.
Next morning in my grandparents' house. Mom went outside with her pajamas and looked like from a fairytale or something. I like!
Here you can see four generations. From left: my mom Sirpa, my great grandma Liisa, my grandma Maija and me.
We found a great big swing with my mom!
Mom went to swim, I was too lazy and didn't want to - in the first time. Next day my grandma and I went to swim as well.
My granddad has the most lovely bicycle I've ever seen (you can't see it very well in this picture but it's just perfect!).
Me and my mom understand a lot about cars................ Because mom drove back home she needed to check the oil ("tarkistaa öljyt" ??) from the car. I helped a lot and took pictures..
There's so beautiful fountainhead where we took some water to drink.
Then we went to see that high tower which has made to see landscapes. It's in the middle of nothing - just nature and I liked it. Here's Aku when we're walking to that tower.
And here's the tower!
I collected some flowers and blueberries while we walked back to our car.
So. I really had great time even if I did something different I'm normally doing. Still every summer we're going to see my grandparents and being in a totally different place than our home which is quite near a bigger city.
At the moment I'm a bit ill and tired. Last night me and Aku took a bus from Pihtipudas to Helsinki which took 6 and half hours. Both of us had about 3 hours sleep. What made us more tired was our huge luggage. Finally we were back home about 8 o'clock on the morning and I went straight to bed. Aku's still awake, he must be deadly tired.
I'd like to see someone today because I DON'T want to sit inside and do nothing. First thing I have to do is go to buy some food because we haven't got very much to eat, haha. But then I could try to reach someone of my friends and DO SOMETHING. And meet someone!
Hope you enjoyed the photos, I don't think they're too good but they tell very much about my time at my grandparents'. Like they say: picture can tell more than a thousand words. And I've got so many of the images so....
