London with my mom

So I am a little behind on my blogging but I had to back track and tell you about my weekend trip to London with my mom. We had such a blast and it was truly amazing. We toured around on a double decker and we were so lucky to have gorgeous weather. One of my favorite things we did was tour the river Thames, it was a fun and different way to see the city. We saw all the major sites including the Tower of London (which I don't have a picture of...) I have been to London a few times now, but I have never seen a Broadway play so we scored some tickets to WICKED and it rocked! I loved the music, the storyline, the scenery, everything about it was fantastic.

My MUM is here!

My mom has been here visitng the past week and we are lucky enough to have another full week with her before Millie and I head back to Utah for three weeks! I can't wait to see my family and friends at home but it has been a blast being able to share my life here with my mom. The 1st day she was here she got started on Millie's favorite grandma activies; playing in makeup, helping her cook, making playdough, playing in the bath, and feeding the ducks. We have been running around since the minute she got here and this is the first day I have had a chance to get some blogging done.

Isn't Millie Lovely

Bring on Spring!

The old graveyard in our city center

Notice the cars in the backgroud...I don't think I will ever dare drive here!

Grandma and Millie attend Hogwarts

(the dining hall in Christ Church where Harry Potter was filmed)

After spending the morning at a private showing of the Ashmolean's most amazing art work we had lunch at the Noodle Bar YUMMY! ( we were able to see work by DaVinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, and Van Goug)
