Lovely pictures. Thanks for posting. It's great to see the CP-family having family time. Although I like seeing it, I'm glad there is the option for the RF to have privacy when having family time.

A delightful BB video of Josephine in particular in front of Gråsten Manor.

Heartwarming to see Josephine embrace Christian. I guess that even though he does tease from time to time, he isn't that bad.

This is from today - this morning - all cycling back home after riding lessons at Gråsten Riding School. How happy I am to see Josephine is along and doesn't at all seems to has been scared of horses after her fall. Great. She's a cool little lady.

Poor Josephine, I see in the photo of her in the dress with tied straps that she has some bad bruises on her arm near where the cast starts

How big Christian and Isabella are, and they look cool with their riding gear and bikes

I looks like Countess Ingrid is there with them. As a granddaughter of Princess Benedikte she probably got infected with the horse-bug as well

It's my feeling that Frederik, Mary and all four children cycles to the Gråsten Riding School every day while they're in Gråsten. A horse happy family. I'm very happy to see Josephine is along. She is obviously not scared by horse after her fall. Great.

We often see Vincent and Josephine in their older siblings former clothes.
Another example from this summer.

Thank you for the lovely pictures, Roskilde. All the children appear very interested in being outside, and staying active. Josephine is a little trooper, not letting a broken arm stop her.

Does anyone know why Ziggy was not in the summer photo shoot? I've become so accustomed to seeing him with the family.

Ziggy, who BTW is a very mature lady, was very much present at Gråsten.

I too wondered why we didn't see her during the official photo shoot. But perhaps she was tied somewhere due to the dachshunds and Ziggy not being, shall we say, in agreement about who is in charge?

https://scontent-vie1-1.xx.fbcdn.net...g=eyJpIjoidCJ9

I think she is there but perhaps Ziggy the Border Collie, the herding dog, is keeping and eye on her "flock of sheep" from a distance

This photo is taken in connection with the Gråsten photo session in 2012

I think you are right, Polyesco.

And I too like to see M&F with children being allowed to be an ordinary family.

Billed Bladet this week naturally covers the vacation at Gråsten. I'll get back to that tomorrow.
There is also a large interview with the Regent Couple that is worth translating, more on that later as well.

However, there is not much concrete news in BB. Except Mary being quoted for saying: "Here are lots of opportunities for activities" when on the cycle to the nearby riding center.
And there are probably more opportunities even than at Fredensborg perhaps.
They can swim, in the swimming pool or at the sea.
They can go riding.
There are more quiet lanes, where they cycle.
They can pop across the border to Germany.
Go kayaking.
There are several family oriented amusement parks within an hour by car.
The park is large, so plenty of room for children (and dogs) to run around.
Gråsten Manor is large as well with lots of rooms and corridors to explore and hide.
There are interesting machines, like diggers daddy can impress the children with.
Frederik (and Hamish) can cycle into the baker in Gråsten town every morning - and afternoon - and evening - after fresh bread and pastry without causing a stir.

And on that note let us have a look at the all time holiday favorite: fresh bread and pastry.

In the morning the menfolks are obliged to pedal to the local bakers for "rundstykker" and "morgensnegle".
http://a.bimg.dk/node-images/19/2200...dstykker--.jpg
Cut in half and with a thick layer of real butter. http://www.fancybites.dk/wp-content/...-2076x1152.jpg
Still lukewarm from the oven.
Sometimes with cheese or jam. http://www.letlivet.nu/files/manager...g-rugbroed.jpg
You'd be surprised at how your otherwise very calorie-conscious wife can wolf down one bun after the other - as if she was pregnant!
Milk or juice is served alongside the buns.

Naturally no breakfast would be complete without morgensnegle = morning-snails, which is a pastry. There are countless variants.
http://www.bakkegaardensbageri.dk/Cu...1844/3_635.jpg
http://b.bimg.dk/node-images/792/7/2...-wienerbrd.jpg
http://levlykkeligt.dk/files/Snegle.jpg
Usually enjoyed with coffee. And because it's holiday you'll have two snails, right?
(One snail covers one seventh of a well build adult mans daily calorie intake).

After a wholesome lunch you begin to feel peckish in the mid afternoon, so you all stroll to the baker to have a freshly baked white bread, of which there are countless variants as well:
http://www.jannefischer.dk/wp-conten...-br%C3%B8d.jpg
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-GVH4MtpjyN...kbr%C3%B8d.jpg
http://i.ytimg.com/vi/MwyMDlh6RE4/maxresdefault.jpg
Still warm from the oven naturally.
You use the rest of the butter from the morning, that almost melt on the bred. Cheese, jam, chocolate, Nutella means that, to your mild surprise, all the bread has vanish before you've finished your third cup of coffee.
It is summer after all, so you spoil yourself with something light, say a "flødeskumskage = whipped-cream-cake".
http://www.madenimitliv.dk/wp-conten...demedaljer.jpg
http://spisestuen.dk/wp-content/uplo...eskrans-29.jpg
Refreshing on a hot day - or otherwise...

After the dinner, you go for a stroll, and the womenfolks "persude" you to go to the baker one more time, while they go home and make some coffee.
What could be better for the evening coffee than a "kringle", right?
Again there are countless variants, easily one for each evening and the pastries in Southern Jutland in particular are very good indeed!
http://www.detsoteliv.no/sites/defau...?itok=_6_0ODES
https://klappeklappekage.files.wordp...8/kringel7.jpg
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-2L4YWXPbFd.../doris+087.JPG
https://pantograph0.goldbely.com/upl...fe31406e84.jpg

And the next day, the whole thing starts again, unless of course someone comes visiting or there is something to celebrate. In which case Frederik will mount the iron horse again and embark on his journey to the baker after a layered cake. It is after all summer and there is no reason to make a song and dance act of the whole thing, right? So something simple will suffice. Perhaps with strawberries, that's refreshing.

As we all know, food eaten during a holiday doesn't fatten - until next week.

These pictures are making me want to go to the bakery, and I'm trying to behave, and avoid anything that remotely resembles desert, unless it's fresh fruit .

Imagine being Celiac and looking at all that...whimper!!

Dad and I did enjoy looking at it all. To the point he feels we should pack and head over for a visit.
