Frederiksborg Palace and toured the castle. I love the cooper roof and the detail of the chapel was stunning. It was really beautiful inside and out. We also had a very helpful tour guide who told us all kinds of interesting stuff about the art.
Carl Bloch paintings of Christ and since my church uses them in their media and in our church buildings, it was a special thing to see the original paintings of the art I am so familiar with. They are beautiful in real life. I didn't get a good picture of them because the room they reside in is very, very dark. We were all commenting on how we wished that there had been better lighting because we couldn't see very well. Then we found out later that they purposely made the room's lighting dim because the artist wanted the main source of light to be through Christ. I thought that was really special.
Polser. I think just about every culture has their version of the hot dog and in Denmark, it's the red skinned hot dog with grainy mustard, remoulade, pickles, chopped onion and crispy onions on top. It was delicious!
While walking around Stroget (the pedestrian shopping streets), David and I shared a Belgian waffle with chocolate sauce. You guys - it was heaven. I enjoyed it thusly. I realize this is an unattractive picture of me but you need to grasp just how delicious it was.
We found the cutest little children's boutique called Karrusella and I wanted to spend every last dollar I had and buy up everything they sold but I resisted. It was fun to browse with Senja and Mikael and die over the adorable baby shoes that Senja found for Matilda. We had a great time walking around the city and window shopping. I basically mugged on Matilda the whole time because I was missing Fritz something fierce and she is also one of the world's cutest babies. We ended up at Nyhavn and got to see the beautiful, colorful buildings along the canal. It was such a beautiful day and we were so lucky that we got to meet Senja and her family!
