"Children are fascinated by the ordinary and can spend timeless moments watching sunlight play with dust. Their restlessness they learn from you. It is you who are thinking of there when you are here. It is you who thinks of then instead of now. Stop. Let your children become the teachers and you the student" - William Martin

Washington DC

We went to Washington DC last week for the national internal medicine jeopardy competition. SR was on a team that represented our state. Since I have known SR, he has impressed me with how quickly and accurately he remembers medical trivia and eponyms. Am I possibly the only woman out there who is turned on by this? :) I guess it runs in his family as his dad was actually on Jeopardy in Denmark and won.

Sadly, SR's team didn't get to advance to the second round. But that didn't stop us from having fun in DC.

Looking like normal tourists



Of course our trip involved a lot of running. On the second morning, we took a running tour starting in Rock Creek Park.

To The Potomac


And of course it wouldn't be a vacation if we didn't have a photo of us staring lovingly into each other's eyes.



We did make the mistake of driving 16 hours there. The poor Bois. 3 month olds don't get excited about road trips like the young adults of America and Europe who fancy themselves wandering and spontaneous. He's looking a bit haggard here.


And he's got parents who both like to steer the ship, chose the route and plan the day.

But somehow we made it through the trip still in love.

And we were so proud of how little we spent. Plus, the car ride lent itself to many Danish lessons for me and French for SR. I want so badly to speak Danish like I speak English, but of course that takes some work if you live in an English-speaking country. Oh, how I adore challenges.

And I would be lying if I said The Bois didn't have a good time. At least with his dad.
