Saw an interesting play today with the spouses. Well done, but much darker than we all thought. Still, a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
I was able to Skype in for Asher’s first birthday party! First time trying cake with frosting!
What did you do today? Oh, you know, drove to France for dessert.
Today we started with the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace, then to the London Eye, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, the National War Memorial, the Horse Guards Parade and Trafalgar Square and O2! Whew!
Today’s stops included: Platform 9¾ and the Harry Potter store, St. Paul's Cathedral, Guildhall (built in 1411), the Royal Exchange, Bank of England and Mansion House passing St. Mary-Le-Bow Church, the Jack the Ripper alleys, Leadenhall Market, The Monument to the Great Fire of London, All Hallows Church, Tower of London, Traitor’s Gate, London Bridge and Tower Bridge, Leicester Square, Piccadilly, Fortnum and Mason and more! Whew!
We arrived in London and had dinner and a pint at the Catcher in the Rye pub! Welcome to London!
Our adventure to London begins! We drove for about six hours, finally got a passport stamp and sailed across the English Channel! Weekend in London here we go!
Froze our herbs to make easy-to-use cooking cubes! They turned out great!
Today we went for a walk in downtown Kaiserslautern because the weather was lovely. We got to see the statues of the soccer players that symbolize the passion for the sport of soccer (or football, as it’s called here!) Very fun!
