In between study sessions I have tried to get my flowers and vegetable garden planted. We had are sweet grandchildren for a weekend. So much fun and so much work!

Ever since Landon taught himself to ride his bicycle, I have been stressing to him to wear a helmet. I bought him a helmet and I constantly remind him to wear it. So when I was talking to him and trying to help him understand that a skateboard was not a good idea because it is dangerous, his reply was, "But Mimi I will wear my helmet". I wasn't goimg to win this battle.
Here Landon is poising by the pinata. It is almost as big as he is.
Inside Harrods on the floor that expensive scarves and purses are sold.
To top off our wonderful time in London went to the broadway show "Wicked". Bret and I both agreed that it was fabulous. The theatre that the show was performed in had some fabulous architecture. It was a great night. (Please excuse the horrible picture of myself. The sun was so bright I could not help but squint. I did not take very many good pictures while on our trip).
One of the rooms inside the castle.
Inside the Catherdral, it was amazing and this picture does not do it justice.
A resort on the beach near the cliffs.

After a much needed nap we were hoping to take in a concert at Westminster Abbey. We thought that there was a concert around 5 pm, but no such luck. So we walked around the grounds of the Abbey and walked around St. James Park where there is a memorial walk dedicated to Princess Diana. It was nice relaxing day which included a much needed nap.

They have the best soft serve ice cream here. It is a lot thicker and almost like a custard in a cone. They top it off with a stick of chocolate. It is so good!
Both of these sites were out near the town of Richmond which was a neat area. It is in the country, but it had a lot of shopping available and many cafe's and pubs. We traveled by Tube and bus and were surprised how easy it was to get there, that is after Bret did a lot of research.
