Thursday Brady skipped his Finance class and we all headed to Warwick Castle. It was such a cool place. The castle is filled with wax figures depicting real people that lived in the castle or were associated with it. It was really neat to see it in that way. The castle is on 60 acres, but because we were short on time (Brady had to get back to his studies) we didn't wander the grounds too much. We did visit the Peacock Garden and it was beautiful. I counted over 20 real peacocks. It was amazing.
Note the frost. Brrrrrrrrrrr!

Friday Millie took Nana to her favorite park. We played all morning! Then when Millie fell asleep for her nap Nancy and I did some Christmas shopping. I can't tell you what we got, it would ruin the surprise! That night we had "supper" at Merton College. It was the first time they have ever allowed a child to enter their dinning hall. Pretty Cool!

Saturday Brady took the morning off and we toured Christ's Church. It was beautiful but I was bummed because the Dinning Hall wasn't open (that's were Hogwart's dining hall was filmed). Hopefully I'll see it next time. Then Brady and Nancy climbed a church tower while Millie and I waited down below. We had such a great week and we were so sad to say Goodbye to Nancy Sunday morning. Millie woke up and kept asking where her Nana went. She sure loves her Nana. Thanks Nancy for everything you do for us and for all your support. You raised a wonderful son! We love you and Miss you!
