Great Photos! I love the Tower of London... So much history, all the those details... I totally hear you on the whole thing about having read about all these historic figures ... and then actually being there and seeing it for yourself... Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth I -before she was queen ...so many more... Plus all of the stories you read when you were a kid and all of the authors you read in school...

Don't worry about being emotional - I actually cried the first time I was in London... well I was totally exhausted-I hadn't slept on the flight and combined with the fatigue and the emotional overload I actually was crying and giggling at the same time... &

I love that you ran into the disneyesque entertainment... The UK Pavillion at Epcot could use them...

(Maybe you'll find the Rose and Crown Pub... well actually I'll bet in all of London there has to be a Rose and Crown Pub ?

So glad you're having a good time....I can't wait to read more about your trip...

what a wonderful update!!!!!!!!!!!! I too love everything Tudor and oh this update has me wanting to go back. It's been...decades.

Wonderful wonderful pictures Cherie, I felt like I was there with you.

I think I need a new book now...feeling the need for something Tudorish now with a good tower story thrown in, it's been a while.

I'm so glad you took the time to really enjoy it and not rush, how magical. And possible since it was just the two of you! Love that you stumbled across a reenactment, very cool.

It really was a dream come true...sometimes I still can't believe I actually was there.

Yes, being a ginger seems to be a bad thing in the UK....at least I wasn't accused of witchcraft..... Had they asked at the wrong time D.Jay would have certainly claimed that I was a witch.

As for the ye olde toilette, there is just something fascinating about how different cultures and civilizations handle the topic...it reminds me of the Ramona book series, which I loved as a young girl. In one she is in kindergarten and at the end of a book her teacher is reading to the class she raises her hand and asks when the characters went to the bathroom because it was never mentioned in the story.

I understand the emotional overload thing! I experienced it many times on this trip.

As far as Tudorish books you can't go wrong with Phillipa Gregory, she is by far my favorite historical author. If you didn't live on the other side of the mountains I'd offer you use of my collection of her books but I think it would be cheaper for you to just buy them with the cost of gas.

Wow! The last month has been a whirlwind!

It kicked off with sending Evan on his mission, and hasn't let up since!
Between the beginning of the school year, football, a choir concert, band concert, production of the high school play which half the family is involved in oh and D.Jay spent several days in the ICU with blood clots in his lungs and legs.

whew. I'm tired just thinking about it all. I plan to be back later today with an update!

The blood clots sound serious. Hope some has settled down. I know it all never settles down.


We will be here when you can be.

Congrats on you son going to a mission. I'm hoping mine well go but I'm leaving it up to them. My DH finally got baptized last year and now were working on heading to the temple to get sealed. We too are thinking of taken a trip to London and Paris. My dH and oldest want to hit Germany also. So we are hoping on going summer of 2015 after oldest graduates and before he goes on his mission. He'll be nineteen by then so no college before he goes.

So i'm going to dream as I read along with your report. How excited are you about us building a temple in Paris? I'm hoping its built by the time we want to go.
