How can the happiest place on earth be also the saddest?
We are a family who have travelled literally all over the world. In 2013, we travelled around the world for an entire year. And yet some of my most cherished childhood memories is from the summer that we spent in Denmark. It has been more than 12 years since we last visited Legoland in Billund. The last family summer vacation that we had with our big sister Sharidyn before she was killed, was our holiday travelling through Denmark in 2010.
This time we weren’t in Denmark primarily for a holiday but to attend the Children’s General Assembly. I couldn’t help feeling sad that Sharidyn wasn’t with us. Almost everywhere we visited in Billund reminded us of Sharidyn, especially when we visited Legoland on our last day.❤
Our parents are the two most remarkable people in our life. They have fought fiercely and lovingly to give my sister Sydney and I the most amazing upbringing we could have ever asked for. The same childhood memories that they gave Sharidyn and I when we were little, is the same memories they have continued to create for me and my little sister Sydney. ❤
We went on literally every single ride (that wasn't for small kids), and we were even able to convince our parents to go on some of the rides with us. It was a little too much for our dad who easily gets tired because he is sick. But our dad is stuck it out, I think mostly because he wanted Sydney to have some good memories of Billund, and especially Legoland. Sydney had heard of all our stories from when we were there last 12 years old, and I think that it hurt her a little that she couldn't remember anything because she was only a baby. ❤
Now Sydney had her own memories with me, mum and dad! Thank you to the Lego Foundation for the tickets that we received. ❤
Below is a few of our photos that we took from our last day in Billund and a small trip back in time to when we were in Billund 12 years ago. I know that it was difficult for me to be in a place that reminded me of Sharidyn. I can only imagine how painful it must have been at times for my parents.
The photos that I have shared here on my blog are my parents photos that they have given me permission to share. Look but please do not copy these photos!
