A Birthday Blast

After breakfast on Saturday, Karin and Steen took Jessica and I to a flea market in Farum. It’s put on by the Boy Scouts who collect knick knacks people don’t want anymore and it is only open on the first Saturday of the month.  We were there maybe 10 or 15 minutes early and there was already a crowd outside of the building!  People were rushing inside once it opened.  It’s basically a 2 floor building covered in stuff.  A hoarders dream come true I’m sure.  It was hard to move around because of the sheer number of people, but it was so fun to see everything!  Karin and Steen ended up getting 6 plastic chairs for their summer house, a basket for the dogs to sleep in, and a lamp for my host-brother Andreas.  We had to put the back seats in the car down and Karin and I sat where the chairs were supposed to be, so essentially in the trunk, with all of the new purchases!  Steen said it was a good thing we only had a 10 minute drive!

In the afternoon we headed to the Statens art museum for Morfar’s birthday!  We had a guided tour and our guide did the tour in both English and Danish.  I always love guided tours in art museum because there are many things I would never pick up by myself.

After our tour, we went to Morfar’s flat in Hellerup for pizza!  We also had æbleskive, which is a sort of Danish fritter.  So yummy!  Later in the night we played a very intense game of bingo.  The bingo cards look a bit different than the ones I am used to, but it’s pretty much the same.  There were three rows on the card.  Whoever got one row first one a prize (which was why it was so intense!).  The next winner is the person who fills up two rows, and then the third winner is whoever fills up their whole card.  Sadly, I never won.  But it was still really fun!  Andreas won a pack of jumbo playing cards.  Jessica and I along with Andreas’s cousin Oscar ended up playing a very disorganized memory game with the cards, go fish, and attempted to make card houses with them.  Andreas was also throwing the cards at his younger cousin, Victor, but Morfar was not pleased, haha.

Sadly, I never won. :(
