Blinding Light

So not only was the sun FINALLY out today but it was warm enough to go swimming, this also means that the white legs of Brittan came shining out too.

ELISA WAS HERE

It's a big post, I was going to split it up but with my computer still being down I had to take advantage of Brady being home.
Elisa and I on top of Carfax tower.


It's rumored that C.S. Lewis got his idea for the Light Pole and Mr. Tupins (sp?) in "The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe" one night after stumbling out of a pub and looking up at the door and then out at the single light that was on.
It's hard to see me, but I'm swinging on the pole.


Ya, that's one nice car!

Me at Christ Church Dining Hall


Elisa at Merton College (brady's college)
Elisa and Millie at the deer Meadows at Magdalen College
Thames River
Oxford Botanical Gardens
We headed to Statford Upon Avon and while Elisa went to the birthplace of Shakespeare, Millie and I went to a Butterfly Farm and on a River Boat tour.



Yesterday Brady watched Millie and Elisa and I went to London for a bike tour and to see Adele Preform. The bike tour was brilliant! I will never tour by foot through London again like the others suckers.


The guy in the picture with Elisa in the CFO of Apple! He said he knew of job opportunities in RUSSIA! Ya, I don't think so.

The Adele Concert was at the Sumerset House and it was awesome. Adele is only 19 and she is so talented! She stopped in the middle of one of her songs and explained that she didn't like the guy anymore and changed the end of the song. She really was so cute.

Thanks Elisa for taking me to the concert! It really was so sweet of you. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. Thank you so much for coming to visit. Millie is already asking when you are going to come back.

Highlites of Elisa being here:

  • Brady yelling at her for not knowing the rules of Uno
  • Laughing
  • Me winning Uno every time we played
  • Millie sticking her hand in a urinal and licking her fingers
  • Laughing
  • Elisa telling us the story of a kid barfing on the bus on the way back from Cambridge
  • Watching Millie play with Elisa; they were so cute together
  • Lots of inside jokes
  • Meeting Silly people (when Elisa is around everybody wants to talk to you!)
  • London
  • Having one of my dearest friend in the world coming to visit
  • And of Course Laughing

No Good

My computer is broken so I won't be blogging for a little while. Brady has to take his laptop to his Consulting Project and when he's home he needs it to look for jobs and what not. Hopefully I will be able to update soon! I hate not having my computer!!!!!!!!!

Wales

Blogger is acting up on me and it could be because I am posting WAY too many pictures! We had such a great time in Wales! It was a really easy going vacation, well sort of...

We did drive A LOT and when we went on our boat trip we misunderstood the road sign and we came very close to missing our boat. Luckily I stopped an incredibly nice family that drove us to the shore. Thank you to the kindness of strangers, it would have been a horrid day since we were miles away from our car and still miles from the boat. Brady had run ahead of Millie and I and I had NO idea where I was. Not Good.


Cardiff Castle (look close, it was pouring!)


We went to the coolest place called Folly Farm. It was a mix between a wheeler farm, the zoo, a carnival, and and a fantastic park. It was super cheap! This is not the best picture, but it's the only one we took; too bad.








Our "Wales Home" was the most amazing place. Millie likes it more then our home here in England and who could blame her; they had 3 cats, 2 dogs, and 3 horses. The cottage was in the middle of no where and it was really nice to have no connection to the outside world. We just hung out as a family and enjoyed the peace.

The shed next to our cottage








Wales was beautiful!

We went to the most amazing burial chamber. It was built during the Neolithic Age.

It rains regularly and it was so green.


Millie looking for pirate ships. she's a goof ball.
Her new favorite song to sing is, "if you have a frowny face change it for a SMILE". This is her practicing her frown.

Another incredible view.

I couldn't resist posting this picture of Brady being a fabulous dad..Millie had to go potty and there were no bathrooms in sight.

happy birthday codie

I am so grateful to have you as my older sister. You are everything a little sister needs. If I need anything I know you will be there for me no matter what. I will never forget the time I was home sick at Logan my 1st year of college and you drove 2 hour down to get me 2 hours back to Salt Lake and the at the end of the weekend you did it all over again. Thank you so much Codie for being my big sister.
I love you and I hope you have a wonderful day.
We sure had some great times when you came to visit!
