Hi mom!

Yesterday I was in ToyVoyagers meeting (as you already knew), but guess what I did today?

I was in postcrossing meeting!  :D

The meeting was in the café named Wilhelmiina, in Jyväskylä city center.

Mmmmmmmm, I tasted a piece of cheece cake and hot chocolate.

Forum, shopping center, Jyväskylä, Finland - 14th April 2012

By: mmm105

Hello mom!

I visited in one shopping center of Jyväskylä. The shopping center's name is Forum.

In this first photo there's a text "Forum keskipiste". It means "the center point of Forum". Text is written with big letters on the floor.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-4DPss_d2aa0/T4q-qf5mlNI/AAAAAAAAIY0/qHCkNP6WQic/s640/053.JPG

There's many shops in this shopping center building.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-uqvxysr8tT4/T4q-qAY4mxI/AAAAAAAAIYs/1dDILJyMt_I/s640/052.JPG

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-nDfIT8iii9M/T4q-phX0KuI/AAAAAAAAIYk/xL1HAMJr4Cs/s640/051.JPG

Hih, I really like these moving stairs!  :D  B)

This is me going up...

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-5NXDt7s7iTM/T4q-o6vYDXI/AAAAAAAAIYY/MdX3Kj__tLg/s512/050.JPG

...and going down

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-F6e0wS5DIEQ/T4q-q1zqLhI/AAAAAAAAIYw/fBwsC2wpSCA/s640/054.JPG

Oh, I found a funny place inside of the shopping center building. :)

Jyväskylä, Finland - 14th April 2012

Hi mom!

Guess what I did today evening? It was really fun! :)

One of hostmom's friend has a birthday party today. Hostmom asked if I want to come to the party with her. Offcourse I want that! :)

Before going to the party, I made some preparations to having party mood. So, I did a party hat for me.

First need to cut one peace of paper.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-pyTl3_P1bX0/T4rA_2eAoVI/AAAAAAAAIZw/ZkTc_NFZdFM/s488/005.jpg

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-2aeMvAyor-g/T4rBAJyh9aI/AAAAAAAAIZs/0HbLWrit1B0/s640/007.jpg

Then I used a clue stick.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-fVLyBeKmNFc/T4rA_-Zj7II/AAAAAAAAIZo/vmrvgaDfpwI/s640/009.jpg

Hurray! It started to look like a party hat.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-4JRFOmWv0xg/T4rBAw5bQUI/AAAAAAAAIZ4/wIlSPw-STEY/s640/010.jpg

Mom, do I look nice?

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-E1hOaTJRNXw/T4rBBiWxOiI/AAAAAAAAIaQ/vU3a6DdFC3s/s512/012.jpg

Look, this chrocheting rose with a small butterfly on it (hostmom has made it herself!), it's a birthday present to hostmom's friend. Isn't it beautiful? Do you think she is going to like it? Oh, I think so!!! :)

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-vcCXAuO1U9A/T4rBBuuv2DI/AAAAAAAAIaE/WeSQETQE4lI/s640/014.jpg

Just putting the present to the gift bag, and we are ready to go.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-yayfhkDCufQ/T4rBB2X0v0I/AAAAAAAAIaI/TTYfZ7cF1c4/s599/016.jpg

I asked hostmom if someone else ToyVoyager could come to the party with me, so that I wouldn't feel like outsider to being only toy there. Hostmom asked from other toys, and Niiskuneiti came with us. :)

Here we are, in the birthday party!  :p

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-eiBJxEAj4jM/T4rBCcKYIYI/AAAAAAAAIaY/aKc_YrLqtDQ/s640/017.JPG

First some little snacks... chips...

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-DdcVq1bhE5Y/T4rBC07f3iI/AAAAAAAAIag/4zlXlkqW_BA/s512/018.JPG

...and pop corn...

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-njpqId44i-o/T4rBDHYq8UI/AAAAAAAAIas/3J4kQoSR4Ws/s512/019.JPG

...and some grapes...

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-6-l7h56y3sE/T4rBDiKHQuI/AAAAAAAAIaw/njc7Eqm4Zyc/s640/020.JPG

...and lollipop...

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-n3vFtLFbcl0/T4rBD0BDYmI/AAAAAAAAIa0/uCOj2wwPsbo/s592/021.JPG

Then it's time to eat birthday cake, yummy!!!  :p

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-kYLzXFiUpMQ/T4rBFcGveVI/AAAAAAAAIbE/2i-IDB2MwF8/s624/022.JPG

...and some drinks, too! :) by saying "kippis!" (it means "cheers!")

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-TXIkXMm_v_s/T4rBFAzg_cI/AAAAAAAAIbI/cpGRZ7YRdrc/s580/024.JPG

...hih, and eat more cake, this time a chocolate cake with vanilla sauce, mmmmmmm...  :p

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-DKEUzklLz64/T4rBFXDPFRI/AAAAAAAAIbM/xjxBg5ZBZFo/s512/026.JPG

It was really nice party! I had lots of fun!  :p  :D

Hello mommy!

Today was beautiful day, so I was outside. Hostmom showed me more this nice town. We visited in the harbour of Jyväskylä.

But hey, mommy!!!! Where are all boats? I can't see any of them!  :o

It must be dangerous to swinging under the big bridge.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-sN93qT1oCY4/T5BdpQ20MrI/AAAAAAAAI8Y/5n8EmI-Mp5k/s512/095.JPG

Hih, hostmom told me that it's not a real human. It's art sculpture.
Wow!!! It's the one I never forget.  B)  B) It's very cool!

This nice signs is in the harbour.
Finnish text means: "Keep the archipelago clean - On behalv of clear lakes/water."
It's nice!  :)

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-OycpSPUTrf8/T5Bdvt1lU-I/AAAAAAAAI9s/EDBjOf-jnMc/s640/108.JPG

The harbour area of Jyväskylä is quite pretty, don't you think?
Hostmom told me that the area is even more pretty in summertimes. But I think it's nice at this time of the year,too. :)

Hi mom!

I was walking just next to the lake Jyväsjärvi. The lake is quite small, and there's a nice little street for pedestrians around the lake. All these photos are from next to that lake. :)

I climbed on the birch (koivu in Finnish). Birch is a very common tree here in Finland.

Jyväskylä, Finland - 20th April 2012

By: mmm105

Hello again mommy!

Guess what? Hostmom just told me, that I can come with her for a little journey. Hostmom will go visit her parents in North Karelia, Eastern Finland. It's over 300 kilometres away from here. 

I can see the other side of Finland, and I will spend the next few days there! :D

So, because we will leave tomorrow morning, I decided to pack.

Hmmmm... what should I take with me?  :thinking:

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-ZVm8qRhtIS8/T5GDJT1vKfI/AAAAAAAAJVQ/JZuyH55gvcs/s448/e014.JPG

a toothbrush, a mirrow, clothes..... hmmmmm....  :thinking:

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-NoH8vDFta-w/T5GDI6OUlLI/AAAAAAAAJVU/dzFViepRKp8/s448/e005.JPG

Ok, things are packed now. I'm ready to go!

Ilomantsi, Finland - 22nd April 2012

By: mmm105

Hello mom,

I had a nice weekend. I was in a village named Ilomantsi, in North Karelia, Eastern Finland, visiting hostmom's parents and her godchild.

In Ilomantsi there's living about 5 000 people, and there's many sub-villages there. There's also the easternmost point of Finland, and the easternmost point of the continental European Union in Ilomantsi. This village located so east, that it shares about 100 km long border with Russia.

Well, here I am, in front of the house of  hostmom's parents.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-NsFwCPjo-r0/T5WUDzrcrzI/AAAAAAAAJcc/YJbNtSh9Rrk/s448/087.JPG

After long drive a car, we were so hungry. So, we decided to cook. And I was there helping to barbeque! Yummy!  :p

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-lMITBjcfb2Q/T5WTqR1eecI/AAAAAAAAJWw/s2LS-Mcvnk0/s448/013.JPG

There's sausages, beef, chicken and apple slices... :)

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Fy3VuWPxA7Q/T5WTqpdv3nI/AAAAAAAAJW8/Pp7DeQdtOw4/s448/014.JPG

...and offcourse some salad, too.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-v3yjrbc6z4Y/T5WTs66MwLI/AAAAAAAAJXY/DJ3ZgoT76dM/s448/019.JPG

...and for dessert BIG sized pancakes (in Finnish: lettuja).

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-jCsntUkREdc/T5WTv4F2CuI/AAAAAAAAJYc/ZVZ4VJOmppg/s340/028.JPG

It was really good!!! And I ate a lot!!!  :p


After eating I had enough energy to help changing tires of the car. There's no need to use winter-tires anymore, it's already time to use summer-tires. :)

Mommy hello!

Guess what? There was an envelope today, too! And there came a cute teddy bear Ronja from Germany from that envelope. There's starting to have so many TVs here right now. But I think that the more, the more fun we all have!  :D
We gave a group hug to Ronja as a welcome.

Hey mommy!

In the morning I watched through the window, and I noticed there were so many clouds in the sky. Everywhere looks blue and gray, and that was so sad...

I was thinking that there must be at least one way to feel better, and bring sunshine and happiness inside. So, I decided to make a sun myself. Maybe my sun will bring some light here...

And I did it!  B)

Others did, too!  B)  B)  B)

And it worked, we all feel much better now. :)
