Melbourne visits us 2015

Rikke & Brett and the three children all came to Denmark in July/August 2015 and we minded them for a few days, three of them in a weekend palace in Knebel. Some shots were taken at our place, where they also stayed one night and a morning for brunch before they left for Copenhagen and home.

At our place

The twins Alfred and Bastian were at first a bit shy but they soon warmed up, especially to Maeve who is closest to their age.
We met them at Folkestedet and had a sort of brunch. We then went on past an ice cream place and to Dokk1, a great place for kids (and others)

Visit to the new Moesgaard Museum

They had the Chinese soldiers exhibition. It was a bit dark in there and hard to photograph, so there are only a very few.
You could choose ... dress and colour And outside again Long view

Back at our place

Maeve is good at plasticine flowers and keeps the colours carefully separate. This was later spoiled by the more gung-ho twins.

Weekend palace near Knebel, where we spent three days with the kids

The place has 5 bedrooms, saune and indoor pool, and other mod cons, and is about half a km from a beach, which we went to a couple of times, the first time just me and Maeve. I showed her bouncing flat stones off the water and she had fun
The boys mainly spent time with their iPads, and Maeve did too some of the time.
Another trip to the beach, this time all of us.

Lars turned up with he twins, who were happy to see Maeve.
