Ikean Tapaninpäivä [Daily Photo #270]

We went to Ikea today. To celebrate Tapaninpäivä (St. Stephen's Day) they had free horse carriage rides! The horse was lovely (of course! because HORSE). He looked intently first at my husband, then at me. He let me pet him! *happiness overload* I think he was a Finnhorse (suomenhevonen). He had a bell as part of his tack, it jingled cutely when we rode. ^u^ I wanted to take more pics after the ride, but there was already someone waiting for their turn, so I didn't.

Omena ja Kaneli [Daily Photo #263]

I've been looking for this ice cream for soo looong!
Finally found it in Alepa today and started eating it on the way home,
because I couldn't wait anymore. =D

Finnish vegan ice cream with applesauce and cinnamon.
Delicious! Tastes like a cinnamon bun.
