It's the Queen's Birthday!

UNITED KINGDOM | Sunday, 17 June 2007 | Views [508] | Comments [2]

Today we went on a coach tour of London. It was very cool to see the London Bridge and such, but it is the Queen's birthday. So, they have a large parade and the queen rides in an open carriage, which was really amazing to see. We then took pictures with the guards with a funny hat...it was awkward, but you can't not take a picture with them when youre in London. We got to see all sorts of markets, which are really neat, and good places to shop at (Chanel for example, haha, just kidding...).

We got to go on a walking tour of our neighbor, which is the wealthiest part of not only London, but all of England. We went down back alleys that no one knows about and up to High Street Kensington, which has inexpensive clothing stores like H&M, Top Shop, Gap, just to name a few. We had the cutest little tour guide, I want her to be my grandma. Haha

We also went to Kensington Palace, which is where Pricess Diana lived and saw beautiful churches, parks and flats. Its time to rest though. Nighty night!

Lil Mademal... I hope the weather is nice since you are missing the 100 plus temps here in AZ. I was wondering if you have time and some extra money, would you please bring home an Astin Martin or a Rolls Royce for me? I'll even take a Jag... :-) Have fun! Love, Uncle Jim.

Hey Alex, It sounds like you are having so much fun, but I have a better idea than your Uncle Jim's....how about we buy our own tickets so we can take a trip to London too....a Rolls Royce... for the love of all that is holy....Love and Hugs, Aunt Judi
P.S. I am going to send this link to Nathan and Joanne....
