Ok, I realize I have gone on and on about our trip so I am going to wrap it up with this last post. I hate to throw all of London in one post but, well I’m gonna.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE London. There is so much to do there. I loved showing my husband and kiddos around. And I was so pleased to find they loved it too.
Some of the highlights were…….
Playing around in Hyde Park……
We found Speaker’s Corner there.
We also had fun pedal boating around. I am a lover of the theater. We got tickets to see three shows, The Lion King, Les Mis and The Phantom.
I really did not know how Piper and Max would do, would they love them?
The first show we saw was a matinee of The Lion King. The theater was packed full of kids.
To watch Piper’s face throughout the performance was priceless. She loved every minute of it. She said it was her favorite part of the whole trip. We did lots of touring around. We loved seeing Big Ben and going on the London Eye.
We had the most delicious lunch and ice cream sundaes at Harrods.
On Saturday, we had a family photo shoot with Lindsay Silsby of The Pied Piper. If you want to take a peek you can look here.
Afterwards we went through the Natural Science Museum. The kids loved all the hands on projects for them to learn from.
This is what Max saw on the other side of the magnifying glass.We found the coolest huge chess set in Hyde Park. Max was in heaven. The best part about the family trip was the fact that we were together. As corny as that sounds it is true. For two weeks we were together. No phones, because of being International, the kids didn’t have theirs, mine was out just to use for directions and pictures and because of the time difference, Evan couldn’t do much work stuff. No sports or dance schedules to run the kids to. Everything we did, we did together. We had adventures each day. We had things to learn and decisions to make each day and we did it together. We played goofy games in the down times and made each other laugh. When someone was tired or cranky someone else would cheer them up and make them laugh. When we were riding bikes in Versailles, our tour guide told us to mind the gap. Keep the bikes close together so that cars couldn’t wedge in between you and separate you. I like that motto. Mind the Gap. Stay close to each other and watch out for each other. Until next time London.
