proud to be danelle the dane
i learned a lot about my danish (petersen) roots today in elk horn, ia...one of the danish capitals of the world- evidently.
i was once there when the danish immigrant museum opened in the 90s, with the whole petersen clan, but didnt remember much.
it was really cool to get to go and see my great grandpa ulrik's name on the wall of honor. i only wish my grandpa wasnt in pittsburg and could have been there with me.
the windmill was also pretty awesome.
and joel and i must have been destined to be together.
danes made legos and joel loves them. :)
