Halloween

Tivoli here in Copenhagen celebrate Halloween this week. They are open for Halloween one week only, then we have to wait until Christmas to go back :-) ...and summer of course!
They have decorated the gardens so beautifully, they have used more than 21.000 pumpkins in all :-)

Asks favourite was this mill, he loved watching the wings go round and round...
I took some pictures for you....the chinese tower....
....the pirate ship....
....the brewery.....
....and some more pumkins!
The kids liked this pumpkin-man, but when it came time to take a picture, they got bored. LOL!
It was a great day!

Charles has been away at a conference in London all week (he'll be back tonight!), the kids and I have been sick.....and I am soooo behind on my webometrics-paper. I had to call my parents and ask them to come help me out.
They did, thank goodness :-)

Looks like a wonderful place! I hope that you all feel better. Isn't it great to have parents close by that will help out in a pinch?!

All of the Halloween decorations are gorgeous! I am so sorry you and the children have been sick : ( Thank God for Mom and Dad! Glad Charles is coming home. Chad and the two oldest boys are leaving today for a golf tournament, so it will be me, the girls, and Samuel until Sunday : ]

Wow.. that pumpkin patch beats all pumpkin patches! I think I like the windmill most of all too. Wouldn't it be awesome to live in one of those?

Hope you get your papers done.. ugh.

Good to hear that you are better, though and that you had your parents nearby to help out. I hope a day out with lots of fresh air helped, though - thanks for taking us along!

Aren't grandparents wonderful? My mom and in-laws would take my kids any day I needed a break. We are so very blessed!

You've got to stop sharing pics of where you live, I am wishing I could see that part of the country one day-it's so beautiful. Looks like you all had a fantastic time and don't you just love all the pumpkins everywhere-the colors of fall are amazing!
