Today, April 30th is what it's called Valborg in Swedish.
It's the day to celebrate the arrival of the spring.
It seems like this day is more to do with religion in other European countries though.
Swedish tradition on this day is to have bonfires
and you can find public events in big parks with bonfires.
I actually have never been to one because I always worked on April 30th.
I got off work early today so Kaiya and I went to one of events that's held in the nearest park.
.....guess what!? I totally forgot that events were not Kaiya's favorite things.
Oh yes, she refused to go when we were close to enough to hear a lot of people at the site.
She got soooo scared....
It took such a long time to come this close in the photo.
Today we weren't with daddy who always carried her around when she got scared.
So we just sit there and calmed her down.
ということで めちゃめちゃビビっちゃって ここまでくるのにすっごく時間かかったぁ
At last, we reached the fire.
Those people who were the closest to the fire were wearing costumes
...hmm, I wonder what that meant...
There were venders and I was hungry...
I wanted to look around but Kaiya couldn't be there any more seconds...
We headed back home right a way...
出店も出てたけど もうKaiyaさん限界 見て回らせてくれない
Well, it's nice to put up photos of Kaiya not being scared :p
I had to work double shifts today.
I went to work as usual time in the morning.
Then I came home in the afternoon to take a walk with Kaiya....we did a one-hour walk.
After that I went back to work again.
So Kaiya was alone for longer than usual today:(
When we went for a walk in the afternoon,
it was blowing sooooooooo much.
There was this one time I couldn't even go forward because the wind was too strong!
I thought Kaiya was gonna pushed back with the wind
but she was walking better than mommy!! :)
