Picnic At Silvolan Ranta

Silvolan Ranta is located at Vantaa in Helsinki. It’s a lake or rather a beach where everyone can go swim, sunbathe, play, and enjoy. The best time to go there is of course during the summertime. It’s open whole day, whole night, so you can go there anytime you want. It’s the best place for families with kids. I saw so many kids the time we were there.

My friends and I planned for a picnic and a bbq. They suggested we go to Silvola and I’m glad we did because the place was really nice. It was my first time to go there, but my friends have been there few times already. It was a little bit late when we arrived there. We waited until it’s not hot anymore so we waited until around sunset which for me was a perfect time to be there. There were lots of people that day.

We put a blanket near the shore, gather our food and had a quick and great picnic. Little Rianna enjoyed walking in the water. She really wants to go swim, but have to stopped her as it was too late for swimming. Besides, we didn’t stay long. We went home right after the kids got tired playing.

It was really fun. There was a funny story behind it. But those funny experience will only remain to us. It was such a great adventure for us and I had fun pushing and pulling Rianna’s stroller on the bus. Something I have to get used to:) It still makes me giggle every time I remember that day. Love to be with my friends having some serious talks, funny talks and crazy giggles with each other. 

.. we had grilled fish and pork, rice, fruits and some chips.

So, that’s our picnic at Silvolan ranta. Quite fun and memorable!

No Bake Mango Cheesecake / Recipe

Do you like mango cheesecake? Because I do! Mangoes is one of my favorite fruits. I think there is no better than a combination of a mango and a cheesecake. It’s delicious and easy to make. I made mango cheesecake using condensed milk instead of sugar. For me it adds more softness into the mixture. Also, in this recipe I used chocolate chip cookies. You can use any biscuits you like depending on what you think is best for your cheesecake. You can also add sliced mangoes on top of the cheesecake as decorations. It will make the cheesecake pretty and appetizing.

Read below for the recipe and let me know what you think.

“A portraits of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2014.”

Babygirl, we do not go out that much anymore this week. The weather isn’t warm just like few weeks ago. However, we still spent time at the backyard, either you play in the playhouse or you pick berries. You love to sing all the time, and you know few songs already. It makes me smile every time I hear you sing. I think it’s too cute to listen. Such a tiny and soft voice. We do painting this week. You are so excited to do it, but it only lasted about 5-10 minutes, and then you’re done. I kept all your art work. Perhaps I will frame them someday!
