When we were newlyweds, we planned to go to Europe for our 1st anniversary. By the time we celebrated 1 year, I was 36 weeks pregnant. So that got shelved. And ever since then the timing was never right, until [cue heavenly choir] nowwwww!
Medium-length story short, we found really great deals on airfare to Copenhagen for this month. Michelle and Mark agreed to come watch the kids. We bought the tickets and tried to convince ourselves we were really going!
We got back last Saturday. It was obviously so much fun. We had about 3.5 days in Copenhagen and 2.5 in Amsterdam.
Before I go upload a billion pictures, I would like to pay tribute to one of my favorite parts of this whole trip that had little-to-nothing to do with the museums, castles and general exoticness that one travels to Europe to focus on:
We got there Monday late afternoon, partied a bit, and then went back to our hotel where we crashed. Alas, I woke up at 3am and did not get back to sleep. Stupid jetlag. Once I gave up on sleeping, I pulled out the jug of Coke Lite we'd bought at a 7-11 the night before, I put in my ear buds, and turned on Taken on the iPad (that movie seemed most appropriate. Also did you know the streaming content on Netflix varies from country to country, and there is way more stuff in Europe?). Jeff woke up and said, "This is like heaven for you, huh." Yes, yes it was.
