The twins look lovely in that picture with Ziggy.
I think it´s very unfair to criticize Mary like that. Of course they can walk and do lots of things, but when you out with two children, it´s much safer to have them like that than try to control children running everywhere.
Mary seems to me a wonderful Mother and her children look very happy.

A Google map of Tisvilde, where they are on vacation. It's a wooded area with lots of summer cottages: https://app.box.com/s/8g7tcby30ddbq41w615f

It has become the new in-place to go on vacation for who's who in Copenhagen. - Previously they migrated to Skagen in Northern Jutland every summer, where they mingled with those they mingle with on a daily basis - while being observed with some amusement by the locals.

Billed Bladet last week also covered M&F on vacation in Tisvilde. However, they were there before Frederik joined his family. Here they met and spoke with Mary, who very kindly requested that no pictures were taken of her and the children. The magazine respected that, so there are no pics in BB.
Mary was there with the very close friend of the family, Julie Mølsgaard.

They have been observed going to the local baker to get fresh bread for the breakfast. (That's one of the great things about a holiday! It's Sunday every day and you stroll to the local baker in the morning to get some freshly baked bread http://www.hjemmet.dk/ImageProvider/...dae__b468m.jpg
- aaand in the afternoon you stroll to the same baker to get some pastry for the evening coffee. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-P...25C3%25B8d.jpg )

thanks Muhler. It nice to read that Billedbladet respected Mary's wishes although they must be upset that another magazine got the exclusive.

You are welcome.

It is, but then I've seen before that such a curtesy is paid back later.

ADDED: I see it's sometimes handy to have a PET officer around: https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.n...13358122_n.jpg

Vincent and Josephine look so grown up now! They're really cute.

Ziggy seems to be settling gracefully into middle age. :)

So that's what real Danish pastry looks like, pretty close to what we call Danish here.
Thanks for the map, it looks close to Fredensborg castle, isn't that where they used to live?

Yes, only about an hours drive or so from Amalienborg and some twenty minuttes or so from Fredensborg.

Well, since we have no pics of Mary going to the bakers, lets have a cultural introduction to that most essential thing in DK: bread and pastries. - Which, oddly enough, seems to be one of the first things foreigners coming to DK learn to master...

Getting up in the morning Mary jumps on the bike and go to the bakers. Here she orders 20 mixed "rundstykker = round pieces" http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-d-7iHeWGXw...%25A6rdige.jpg and 10 mixed "morgensnegle = morning snails". http://youblush.looklab.dk/files/2011/09/IMG_00881.jpg (There are countless versions of them and one snail equals 25 % of an adult mans daily intake of calories).
Once back in the summer cottage, Mary will munch through two "rundstykker", with cheese or jam or just plain butter, before going to the dessert, a "snegl".

In the afternoon some visitors drop by and Mary pops down to the bakers, to get something for the guests. She orders "Wienerbrød = Danish". http://www.kvalimad.dk/opskrifter/bi...broedstang.jpg And while there she'll have some "småkager = cookies" as well: http://www.madenimitliv.dk/wp-conten...12/Julebag.jpg

When the guests are gone it's about time for dinner, but it's hot and we are on holiday and..., so Mary is on her bike again, this time ordering two "franskbrød = white bread" still warm from the oven.
Back home she'll have some four loafs or so with "leverpostej = liver pate with slices of bacon or alternatively creamy cheese, both almost melting on the bread. http://lonelandmand.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/y26.jpg

Having eaten this light meal... Mary agrees with others that they want something light for the evening coffee, while having a cosy time. So she embarks on another pilgrimage to the bakers where she orders "flødekager = cream cakes". http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...%B8dekager.JPG With strawberries, because it is after all summer and strawberries don't fatten.

- By the end of this week Mary will have gained seven kilos, but enjoyed it.

My border collie lived till he was 17 years so I imagine Ziggy has a few good years left in him yet.

Yummy!! So just to confirm then: if I keep up cycling and cross-training everyday I can eat ALL those amazing Danish Pastries?! I think I'd commute to Denmark every morning if I could just to go to the bakers!
Great picks and so lovely to see the family all together and enjoying the fine weather!

My pleasure all of you.

To answer your question:
If you are an adult inactive man, you can have one snegl, one piece of wienerbrød and one flødekage a day - and that's it!
If you are very physically active, you can throw in three rundstykker, with jam.

- I know, because I'm still on a diet. The weight watchers. It works incidentally. About 25 kilos since last July. Slowly but surely, after some ajustments to suit me. Now there's 15 kilos to go.
There are even AC meetings in the cities. - Anonymous Chubbies - "Hi, I'm Muhler. I'm a calorie addict too".

Slow is the best way to do it! I've lost about 45 kilos, took about 2 years. And weight watchers is great! They teach you how to eat for a lifetime, not just for a short while! Keep going, you can do it!! So proud of you Muhler!!!
Of course, with all those lovely pastries in Denmark I'd probably gain all of it back in a matter of days! HA! I love good pastries and bread.
