  • Inside the Aquarium

  • Dad's comments: This picture is beautiful with a high resolution internet connection. The kids took it while I was listening to Victor Rios-Ruil make statements like (paraphrasing) "I refuse to answer the question because I don't care about it."
  • Copenhagen Plaza

  • Dori's Comments: It was really crowded.
  • Aaron's Comments: I liked the naked people.

  • Skating Outside in Copenhagen 3

  • Dad's comments: until.. well I guess she needs some more practice.
