Klar for København .... Ready for Copenhagen

Dag 2 -hjemme i Herning ... Day 2 -at home in Herning
Vi havde en nem dag i fredags fordi vi har mange travlt dage foran os i København og Amsterdam. Vi viste Stephen omkring Herning og købte Jess hendes favorit Dansk frokost, ”Den Viking Pizza”. Vi tog Albert til den hundeskov og han viste hvor vi skulle gå (og selvfølgelig, vi følgende!!) Det var en dejlig dag som hjælpede os for at være klar for vores tur på lørdag til København.
We had an easy day on Friday because we have many busy days in front of us in Copenhagen and Amsterdam. We showed Stephen around Herning and bought Jess her favorite Danish lunch, “The Viking Pizza”. We took Albert to the dog forest and he led us around. (and of course, we followed!) It was a nice day that helped us to be ready for our trip on Saturday to Copenhagen.


Dag 3 -Tur til København .... Day 3 -Trip to Copenhagen
Efter morgenmad med Thomas og Taimi (som babysit Albert mens vi rejser), kørte vi til København for at vise Stephen alle ting om Danmarks hovedstad. Vi ankom lige til tiden for at kigge dem ”Skifte af Livgarden” i Amalienborg Slot (hvor dronningen bor). Vi tog en kanaltur gennem København, så den Lille Havefrue, gik igennem Nyhavn og handlede på Strøget.
After breakfast with Thomas and Taimi (who are babysitting Albert while we travel), we drove to Copenhagen to show Stephen all the things about Denmark´s capital city. We arrived just in time to watch the “Changing of the Guard” at Amalienborg Castle (where the queen lives). We took a canal tour through Copenhagen, saw the Little Mermaid, walked through Nyhavn and shopped on Strøget.

og Kelli følte MEGET patriotisk ... and Kelli felt VERY patriotic

Kl. 18.00 mødte vi Nichole og Michael for aftensmad til Spiseloppen, min mest FAVORIT restaurant i verden. Det ligger på Christiania, Danmarks ”fri by”, og selv om Spiseloppen oversættes som ”Spise Lopper”, vi ELSKER det! Kokken skifter menukortet hver uge og lavede den mest interessante opskrifter! ALTING er meget lækkert og ikke mad som andre steder!
At 6pm, we met Nichole and Michael for dinner at Spiseloppen, my most favorite restaurant in the world. It is located in Christiania, Denmark´s “free city”, and although Spiseloppen translates as “Eat Fleas”, we LOVE it! The chef changes the menu every week and makes the most delicious dishes! EVERYTHING is very delicious and not like food anywhere else!
Efter aftensmad, kørte alle seks af os til Lyngby (i Mads CIVIC), hvor Nichole og Michael bor. De tilbød os at sove i deres hus før vores tur til Amsterdam tidlig søndag. Det var en meget sjov aften.... fordi vi spillede ”GUITAR HERO” for mange timer. Jeg aldrig spiller ”video spil”, men jeg egentlig kan lidt det! Ikke ligesom Mads,selvfølgelig, men det var rigtigt godt!
After dinner, all 6 of us drove to Lyngby (in Mads´ CiVIC), where Nichole and Michael live. They offered for us to stay with them before our trip to Amsterdam early Sunday. It was a very fun night….because we played “GUITAR HERO” for many hours. I never play video games, but I actually liked it! Not as much as Mads, of course, but it was really great!

How long did it take you to drive to Kobenhavn? It must be a long trip. Sounds like you all have a lot of fun and I laughed when I saw the picture of you with the lady in American flag shirt.

It looks like you all have been enjoying Jess and Stephen! Continue to have fun. We were glad to see Nichole and Michael. The shoe picture made us laugh!

This is a hilarious post!!! The picture of you with the woman in the Stars and Stripes top is SO funny!

Also the one of Mads and Stephen in the shoe store!

And I wish that the picture of Nichole and Mads with the guitars were a video!

You've mentioned several good places to eat in this blog. I'll hve to remember them for when I in Kbh. or Herning again.

I love the idea of a restaurant where the menu always changes. It makes sense because people won't get sick of it; and you could have the specials be some standard favorites!

Mads's name on a store looks cool. They should sell very fashionable little Mads dolls there...wow, okay..that would be crazy.

Guitar Hero is so fun! I also like playing Rock Band b/c you can sing, play guitar, or drums. Geek^5!!!

Have fun in Amsterdam!

You all look so happy and wonderful! So glad you are having a good time. Also good to see you all in summer clothes, and no scarves!

I think next trip to Texas - Michael can challenge Mads because he is pretty good at Guitar Hero!
