We left in the morning on Friday so that we'd arrive at the long bridge to Sjaelland around lunchtime. There's a great park on either side of the bridge, so we packed a picnic and ate by the water.
My pictures got a bit out of order here, and I can't seem to move them around once they're in this page, so I'll just go with it. This here is the three kids sitting on the train on our way into Copenhagen for our "tourist day" with Signe and Alex and their girls. It was the kids' first trip on a train, and they all enjoyed it immensely! They liked being big kids and getting to sit on the bench seats for the half-hour trip from the suburbs into the city. We also took the metro for one stop to get to where we went for lunch.
These photos are now back to our trip of the harbour at our arrival into our Copenhagen weekend. The yellow fields are so abundant and beautiful. They are Raps -in English, rapeseed- which they use to make oil. It's delicious on bread.
We don't often get pictures with all five of us in them, so we took advantage of having a friend along to get a family picture. Way in the background behind us is the coast of Sweden. Though we were so close, we did not cross the bridge to Sweden. Someday we will have to make a special trip to see the land of my ancestors.
We had so much fun staying with Signe and Alex and their girls. And one night we went into the city and into Fredriksburg to see Louise and Thomas and their boys for dinner. All the kids had such a fun time playing together! We stayed until almost 11pm, even though all the kids go to bed before 8. And they all did amazingly well.
Thankfully all the kids slept in a bit on Monday morning, and we ate a leisurely breakfast and then headed back home. It was such a fun weekend!
