On Thursday we had a team building night where we took a ferry to an island off the coast of Copenhagen. There we split into three teams and went on a treasure hunt around the island.
Part of our journey took us down into the basement cellars of the lighthouse...Nina was a little scared...
Hard at work trying to complete one of the tasks...
So...how many meters above sea levels would you say we were?? Well, I defered all tasks having to do with the metric system to my team members, but I'll tell you one thing, the answer is not 12meters.
Afterwards we enjoyed a great BBQ "back at the ranch" - see you all in a few months!

And of course we had to introduce the Brazilians to the Mexican train - final standings were Nina in first, Cecilia, Gustavo, and me brining up the caboose...arriba arriba!!!
Cecelia and Don were great helpers in the kitchen...the avocados were a little green, but no worries, we used the hand blender to soften them up!
Appitizers were chips with guac and salsa...and cheese and onion quesadillas. Followed by my "party staple" Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas. YUM!
Now they are off on a Northern European tour and I hope they're having a great time!!

We set up our blankets and busted out all our picnic gear and enjoyed a great evening and a great movie!

It's a bar...on a boat...in Nyhavn...what's not to love?
2. Something crazy is guarenteed to happen
Today I went to watch the Tri-Nations Championship. The Tri-Nations is a rugby tournament between the Southern Hemisphere rugby teams - New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa. I was a little late as I did the time conversion wrong thinking the game was being played in OZ instead of NZ. When I got there some of my favorite men from the southern hemisphere - Calum (SAF), Kevin (NZL), and Grant (AUS) - had already come up with a prank to play on our friend Jody. Jody was going on a canal tour with his new girlfriend LeAnn and the boys decided they were going to moon him.
After meticulously diagraming the lettering (wish I would have taken a picture of the scrap of paper where they had drawn out the plan) they used red marker to spell out "Hi Jody." It was decided that I needed to take a picture so they could preview the spectacal...afterwhich we all decided they needed black marker to add definition. Good thing they checked - disaster averted. Liz and I were extra entertainment for the people touring, donning Russian captain hats and waving flowers. This tour group certainly got more than they paid for. We decided that next time we'll hire a car and travel from spot to spot along the tour (Little Mermaid, Christianshavn canals, etc).
3. I get to bartend
Okay, this is Grant not me, but things got pretty busy and we all had to chip in. I was walking around picking up empty glasses and a group of German ladies called me over to order. You typically have to walk up to the bar to order, but hey why not give some added service?! I stuck to the "simple drinks" while Grant made a crazy concoction for a guy on a bachelor party.
Dudley was at home today, but he is a fantastic old yellow lab who hangs out on the boat most days.
5. Drive Thru Service
Again no picture because I was on the phone...but a big sailboat was headed out of the harbor and had to wait for the bridge to go up, so they moored up next to us and enjoyed a cider while they waited...now that is service!Ah summertime in Denmark :)
Buon Compleanno Willam!
Saturday was another great day spent at the beach. We biked up to Bellevue (about 30min) and spent the day laying in the sun, swiming in the sea, bbqing, and playing beach volleyball.
