Midsummers Eve...





We (swedes) celebrate our National Day on June the 6th, but Midsummer's Eve is really much more celebrated, this year the 25th of June (last Friday). Children and adults dance around the midsummer's pole, singing all the traditional songs, having a lot of fun...

My nephew Edwin (above) was so tired though that he preferred to sleep on dad's shoulder. His older brother, Wilhelm, disappeared in the dancing crowd with a friend, so I've got no photos of the actual dancing.

But when Wilhelm turned up again he wanted to jump in the "jumping castle" (not quite sure if that is the correct English name for it) and after that he looked like a red tomato, sweat pouring all over his face.




He even had to lay down for a while and rest, his little brother was very concerned....





Edwin played a lot with his new green ball which he won in a contest, it was quite the right size for him.
