Our Friends from Denmark

Liselotte, Steen, Emil, Mille, and Max arrived on Thursday from Denmark. Their visit has been so much fun. We have thoroughly enjoyed having them here and it has been amazing to watch the kids together. Despite not being able to communicate verbally, they have totally hit it off. I know it is going to be a very, very sad day around here when we have to say "good-bye" to our dear friends. Fritz's motorcycles made an early appearance and let's just say they were a hit. Between the motorcycles and the big screen tv, Emil might never leave which would be alright with us. They spent 2 weeks in California before coming to MN.
Steen might also be in heaven!
Mille is a purse girl and we went to the outlet mall and the girls had to get purses like Mille at the croc outlet.
Never a dull moment when Fritz is around.

The kids just love their new friends.
This tree got ripped out last week in the bad storms in our neighbors yard.
Bon Fire with smores on Saturday was a perfect night.

Mille...she is so beautiful!
Everybody together on Saturday night for a bbq.
It was so fun to have our parents out to spend time with all of us as well.
We went to the beach on Saturday morning.

On Sunday, we went to Canterbury Downs. We had never been there before and it was SOOOO much fun. Jeff thinks we will be going there every Sunday afternoon for family day.

The boys studied the races for awhile and then were very confident when they jumped into the betting world. I think they each lost a few bucks...not too bad for a fun afternoon.
