I'm finally on holiday, and have spent the past four days away from all communication devices and work, just focusing on my family, resting and recharging. Lars, Emma and I have spent the past couple of days at the in-laws (Lars' parents), watching Emma light up around her Farmor and Farfar.

The five of us went to Egeskov Castle, which apparently Lars has told me about before but I had no idea it was such a great place. They have a petting zoo, a great (huge) playground and Lars and I went "Tree top walking" (where I took the picture). We didn't spend that much time there, Emma got tired and cranky, but it was great and we will definitely be going back (we bought a season pass).

The great and unexpected Danish summer has given way to the typical cold and rainy weather but I don't really care. I've been so burnt out and overwhelmed at work I don't mind the excuse to stay inside and get a little extra sleep. Emma, however, is part duck. She was suited up in her rain gear today and just giggled in the downpour. My little Viking baby...

I’m Mel Gibson and I don’t hate Jews. I actually said "I Hate Juice"

What a funny little site to stumble on. I'm trying desperately to tie up loose ends at work and actually have a vacation RIGHT NOW... but this site was good enough to take a minute out of my regularly scheduled program and blog about.
