Punting in Cambridge

We took a train from Kings Cross to Cambridge. We love the trains! We especially love when we get the seats with a table so the kids can work on their puzzles.It was lunch time when we got there but we didn’t want to deal with finding food so we just grabbed some stuff at…

Father’s Day in London

Happy Father’s Day to Rusty! The day started with almond croissants from Gail’s, fresh British strawberries, and his favorite protein shake. We got him a biscuit with a badge that said “best dad” but then dad licked the frosting and changed it to “butt dad.”  In honor of Josh, and how much he loves cheese…

London Science Museum and West End Live

We took a trip to the Science Museum.  It was pretty fun. The museum is free to enter, but then all the fun stuff to do costs money. Of course.  Hands down, our favorite things was the Flight 360.  It was a flight simulator that could spin in complete circles.  We had a blast flying…

Harry Potter Walking Tour and the Thames Monsta

I found a Harry Potter Walking Tour we could take using our Chase credit card points.  So we booked!  We met at the Palace Theater where The Cursed Child is playing on the West End.  I have tried to get tickets since January and haven’t succeeded yet.  Keeping my fingers crossed.  We all got sorted…

Princess Diana Memorial

Hampstead Heath

It was a rare bright and sunny day on Monday and we wanted to take advantage of the beautiful weather.  We landed on Hampstead Heath. And it was glorious.  But, it was quite the morning leading up to it.  Rusty and I went to yoga and then stopped a Lidls on the way home to…

Battersea Park and Clapham Commons

After 10 INTENSE days of travel, we were ready for a break!  We said goodbye to Grandma and Grandpa and Nat and Michael after our bus tour on Friday night.  Their flight was Saturday afternoon.  We are sad to see them go! Saturday Rusty and I went and signed up for our month of Yoga…

Tower of London and Borough Market

Papa brought us Cronuts to Tower of London.  They were Lemon flavored.  I think the cronut has lost its magic.  it was good, but not great.   Our favorite parts were the weapons room and the Crown Jewels.  The kids love the legend of the Ravens.  As long as the ravens stay at the Tower, it…
