Mario's spring break was two and a half weeks long, so, when our family returned from Denmark, we decided to take a road trip somewhere warm. I love living in Europe because in only a few hours we can be in a new country experiencing a new culture, delicious cuisines, interesting people and new places. We decided to drive to Normany, France, to see the beautiful beaches and to relax for a few days before heading back to reality. We stayed in an amazing hotel with a swimming pool and garden to run and play in. It was a perfect long weekend escape, and we would love to go back again to explore more of the region. Until then, enjoy these photos of Mario, who was more than excited to escape to the countryside!
Here is a photo of Mario and His Dada, who Mario says is the "best dada ever!" Mario's Dada gets a Perfect 10 on his Score Card!
We Love you today & everyday Dada!
After visiting the Original Legoland in Billund, Denmark for Mario's Spring Break Holiday, we spent a couple of days in Copenhagen. Although it was cold and rainy (really cold and rainy), we did manage to explore a bit of the city and visited the National Aquarium Denmark, Den Blå Planet. Den Blå Planet is Northern Europe's largest aquarium and Mario loved the interactive touch screens they have next to each tank to learn about the animals. The aquarium resembles a whirlpool when seen from above and is spectacular - I highly recommend visiting Den Blå Planet if you go to Copenhagen with little ones. Besides going to the aquarium, we spent a lot of time in our hotel - our hotel had a swimming pool and bowling alley, so we went swimming every day and Mario bowled for his first time. In between swimming and bowling, we met our friend, who lives in Copenhagen, for lunch and dinner dates - we almost felt more like locals than tourists while there which was fantastic. We all loved Copenhagen and can't wait to visit again!
Happy Mother's Day! I hope that all the mamas had an amazing day with your little ones today & everyday!
Although I usually don't share photos of myself, I am sharing a photo of me and Mario today because we had a perfect Mother's Day together: we ate brunch at Anholt Castle; Mario ate the candy necklace he gave me (though I am keeping the string); and my boys gave me the most beautiful bouquet of flowers yesterday because Mario couldn't wait until today to give me flowers!
Love, Petit-Swag XOXOXO

Mario talks about his birthday at the Original Legoland almost every day, and he routinely asks if we can go back next year. Since Mario had such an amazing time at Legoland, I am sharing some more photos of him at his favorite place ever. The second day we spent at Legoland Billlund was a lot colder than our first day there, but that didn't seem to bother Mario. We all bought matching Lego black hats and I wrapped a Ninjago blanket around Mario and he was ready to explore the Lego Haunted House and the rest of the park all over again!
