Sightseeing with Grandparents

Some snaps of our visit with the grandparentals. More of the sites and the family here.

We’ve been catching up this week after GigGig and Bompa (Grandma and Grandpa Mee) came to stay with us for a few days. (Hurrah!) It felt really good to host someone in our flat — making up the guest room, planning “typical” Danish meals, figuring out the best sites to see. Having family here as guests helped the apartment feel more like home.

While my folks were here we fed them drammekage (‘dream’ cake with coconut); ‘Danish lunch’ (wasa bread, hardcooked eggs, cured meat, cheese, and veggies); and plenty of beer under sun umbrellas.

We were able to show Grandma and Grandpa our neighborhood and how we lived, visiting the Frederiksberg Haven (park) and the University gardens; riding bikes through the back roads so they could see how much Cate’s learned; and taking walks around our house.

Of course, we also did the typical touristy things like visiting Frederiksborg Slot (Palace) and taking a boat tour of the canal in downtown CPH. Of course, the biggest event was the girls’ early birthday present from GigGig and Bompa — a full day of rides and sugar at Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park.

In addition to the pictures of their visit, which you can find by clicking on the link under the photo collage at the top of the page, I’ve also put up a set of stuff we consider “typical” of Copenhagen, just for fun. We’ll add photo’s to this from time to time. There are lots of funny Danglish signs and graffiti I’d like to take some pictures of.  We hope this things help you catch the vibe of our CPH living.

Much love from all of us to all of you.

    So glad GigGig and Bompa could come visit! That must have felt good to have family in your new home.

    Alberto and I just got back late from a couple days in Santa Barbara for our other important Katie’s kindergarten graduation (oh my! what a fuss!). So, I’m going to take a closer look at the pics later. I also appreciated Paul’s late night/early morning photo.

    Could you send us Cate’s email, please? Thanks! Much love!
