Copenhagen, Denmark

Tuesday, February 7, 2017

3 day weekends are hard to come by in the basketball world. Thankfully, Brad could have one this past weekend. His team advanced to the Top 6 of their league and received some much-needed time off before qualifying for Final 4. Copenhagen is a place we have always chatted about seeing. When you find $40 flights you just book without even thinking. Guys, RyanAir is CHEAP. It makes you want to hop on a plan every weekend. Plus, Comfort Hotel Vesterbro had a great deal for it being Copenhagen Fashion Week.

Copenhagen was cold and rainy, but gorgeous. It was the cutest seeing Brynn in her little rain suit, jumping in every puddle she found. Every step I took though I couldn't help but feel like I was in The Killing. It is a Danish original series, but they re-made the American version based in Seattle. SO GOOD if you are into the mystery-murder type. 

Anyway, just walking around on the cobble stone streets, looking at the colorful buildings along the canals, filled with boats had me head over heels with Copenhagen. I mean, really, how cool is God to have created all of this? I still am blown away in everything by Him. I took pictures of everything. I'll photo dump below.

LEGO was first invented in Denmark. Huge LEGO store that Brynn was just in Heaven with. 
















Both of our first times at an aquarium. Obsessed is an understatement. 






Changing of the guards at the Queen's winter residence. 



The Little Mermaid statue. Not that impressive. Although, Brynn was really happy to see a mermaid that she thought was real. 


I hope all of you get a chance to visit Copenhagen one day. It's magical!

Christmas 2016

Sunday, January 1, 2017

For months we planned detail by detail of our Italy trip for Christmas 2016. Some wrenches were thrown and it wasn't possible to go. I was bummed for a minute, but took it as God wanting us to slow down and enjoy the time with my brother(1st Christmas in 6 years together). While we still seemed pretty busy, we were less busy than what would have been in Italy. We hit up 3 cities in particular over the week break, Strasbourg, France, Stuttgart, Germany, and Cologne, Germany. These cities are nothing short of beautiful and fun. SO happy we went with this route and had a wonderful Christmas holiday.

Our days in Luxembourg





Brynn couldn't leave her Uncle Brady alone!
