httWe are leaving for Venice on Tuesday and tomorrow is going to be hellacious as we get packed and geared up to go... as we will also be saying farewell to 007-dad's brother and our sister-in-law, who have been here for the last week. Besides showing them around our beautiful part of the country, we had a great time with them in London on Friday and Saturday. We walked everywhere our legs could take us in the Trafalgar Square area of the city and exhausted the kids and ourselves into early bedtimes (I was asleep by 10:30 on Friday night, which has to be a record for me! ;).
I'll have time to write on the plane, so until then you'll just have get by with some photos from the last few days.
The London Eye:
Jubilee Garden with the Thames, Parliament and Big Ben in the background:
Destructo, stretching his legs on the Jubilee bridge across the Thames.
The London Eye from a river boat tour. (Hipstamatic app on the iPhone)
My baby boy, making his momma's heart melt on the carousel....
CC and Destructo, happy to be together in the posh lobby of the Grand Hotel at Trafalgar Square.
Hello from the Lions of Trafalgar Square!
I got better photos at the aquarium with my iPhone than with my regular camera. Harumph.
Ghosts of Salisbury Cathedral?
