We love our little girl and now have another one coming soon! Stay tuned...


"Look kids...Big Ben, Parliament"

On March 4th we flew to London with our friends Michael and Julia and their daughter Naomi for a few days of sightseeing. Michael had an interview scheduled in Cambridge on the 6th so we thought we'd all make a little trip out of it. Boy were we busy! We did pretty much every touristy thing you could do while walking through London in a day and a half. We saw Buckingham Palace (the Queen wasn't there or else I'm sure she would've invited us in for tea), Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, the London Eye, Tate Modern Museum, Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Milennium Bridge, 10 Downing Street (that's where Tony Blair, the Prime Minister, lives in case you didn't know...it was highly guarded so we didn't bother him but I'm sure he would have been happy to have us in for tea as well), Trafalgar Square, St. Paul's Cathedral (where Prince Charles and Princess Diana were married in 1980), Kensington Palace, Shakespeare's Globe Theater and probably loads more that I'm forgetting. We absolutely loved London and plan on spending more than a day there another time so we can take it all in a bit better. After our time in London we took the train to Cambridge so Michael could have his interview. While he was interviewing Andy and I walked to all the different colleges that make up Cambridge University to look at them. Some of them had an entrance fee so we just took pictures of the outside of those. The ones that were free to see were so beautiful we didn't care about not being able to see all of them. The history there was great, some buildings dated back to the 1100s! The pictures above are Tower Bridge, Big Ben and Parliament and Buckingham Palace. The bottom two are St. John's College and Christ College at Cambridge University.
