|A well organised game of mölkky|
|Get over here! Group photo!|
You know, I don't know why I'm making it sound like Captain Scott's expedition to the South Pole. This year's Vappu was pretty successful - see how many people turned up! And there were quite a few others who didn't happen to get into these pictures. I'm waiting to see some more pics, like the one Anna was taking here over on the right, maybe on Facebook some time.
Worthington Park is an attractive place, as I hope you can see. It's big enough so that even on a fine Saturday there's enough room for us. And not just to have a picnic, but to spread out and maybe enjoy a game of mölkky or pesäpallo. We have the equipment for both those games by the way. No pesäpallo (Finnish baseball - from what I've seen of the US and Finnish varieties, the Finnish form of the game has a lot going for it) this time around, but we've often organised it in the past, and if there are enough people interested at the same time, we'll set it up again in the future, and not just for Vappu. So - our little Vappu picnic this year was actually pretty good. We had a lovely friendly family atmosphere - mission accomplished, as they say.
