Skiing in Klosters

22 February - 1 March 2009

Frederik, Mary & their two children went on their annual skiing trip to Switzerland. This time they opted for Klosters instead of Verbier.

They all took the private Lego jet to Zürich.

Christian (3,5) for the first time answered a reporter's questions, encouraged by mom & dad:

When asked if there would be 3 children with them on their next Swiss holiday, Mary answered: "We can't say that with certainty but it's not impossible. It could be lovely if we would. Lovely if we could be so fortunate to have yet one more little one".
