Celebrating Mid Summer

Yesterday we celebrated ' Sint Jan' or MId Summer at 5-year old's school. First we took our bicycle for an hour trip to the woods. There we walked a lovely path that brought us at a big farmer's field where we sat down to picknick. There was lots of yummy food like strawberry cake, pancakes, cherries etc.

After that we pulled rope, danced and sung a lot of happy summer songs accompanied by the accordeon. It was really joyful there out in the sunny fields.Do you see my skirt? I made it myself from a vintage curtain...It was something I wanted to do for a long time (and on the summer-to-do-list also) and it was really simple actually!

This all ended so lovely by this ride... for a moment I thought we were in Sweden....

A lovely start of a hopefully long and hot summer!
Enjoy your summer !!

It sure does look like you had a wonderful day. Your skirt looks great - your little ones are just beautiful. I love the red checked cloth - very bright and cheerful. Your photos are amazing with the vibrant colours.
