Nothing says Happy Anniversay like a Man In Tights...

So Brady surprised me with a trip to Robin Hood Territory...NOTTINGHAM! We had so much fun! Friday we drove 4 hours to our hotel (should have been 2 hours..TRAFFIC), we got settled and headed out to get some dinner. Brady we so sweet. He kept surprising me the whole trip including taking me to my favorite restaurant here in England, Caffe Uno. Oxford used to have one but it closed six months ago. After that we strolled through town, did a little shopping and then went to see Iron Man. I really didn't want to see it, but Brady had been so sweet the whole trip I thought I at least owed him that. I ended up LOVING it. Saturday we drove to Sherwood Forest and went for an awesome bike ride. It rained on us most the time and Brady's bike broke, but it made the trip even better. We were also able to see the legendary Oak Tree that is thought to be the place were Robin Hood and his Merry Men would meet.
Thanks Brady for a fabulously trip and thanks to The Gotz and Swinton Families for helping us out with Millie. We are so luckily to have such great friends!
I can't believe it has already been 5 years! Time Flies when you're having fun!

Nottingham City Square
Way Bad Picture I know, but we were so happy to be in a "normal" theater I couldn't help but jump on the seats!

This was actually after we went biking which is why I look so disgusting.

Do you think Robin Hood himself hid here before an ambush?

We Love

It's hard to tell in this picture but the rear derailer snapped off and it totally bent the wheel.

THE tree

Wow how amazing the picture of Brady on his bike at the bottom of the hill is WAY awsome it looks like a professional advertisment. The tree at the bottom, what is holding it uo or around it? What an amazing time again you guys are so lucky and to see all of these historical places is a blessing. 3 night for us and we are out of here. Holy COW

What a fun little trip! Funny thing- last year for our anniversary we went biking in Napa valley and my husband's bike also broke down. Good times! Happy anniversary
