Making new friends

Sorry for the silence, but I was in England for 10 days. Wes and I had a long weekend in London where we did some sightseeing. Wes had only ever been there for work, so I thought it would be nice for him to visit before we moved to the States. My cousin also happened to be in town for her son's school trip, so we had dinner with them one night. We had gorgeous weather, but it was pretty cold. Don't be deceived by the sunshine! Unfortunately, my camera is on the fritz, so I didn't take too many pictures.Not to mention, we also went to a lot of places that don't allow pictures inside (St Paul's, Westminster Abbey). They were gorgeous, but I guess you're going to have to see for yourself!

Me: 'Look Wes, Big Ben...Parliament! Hahahahahahaha!!!!!!'
Him: 'Huh?'
Me: Trying to explain Chevy Chase in European Vacation. I think we're going to have to rent it!

One of King Henry VIII's suits of armour on display at the Tower of London. I think he was an exaggerator. 

This cheeky raven kept attacking the lady in the green jacket as she had some food. I guess that huge heart he ate earlier didn't satisfy him.

This is the view from our hotel in Earl's Court. It was nice enough, but Wes wasn't too happy about that stuff up on the left hand side. That's Chelsea's football grounds. We had to keep the curtains closed for most of the time.

After Wes left I travelled to visit some friends who have had babies since the last time I saw them. Thankfully we walked tons in London because when you visit people with new babies you sit around a lot bouncing babies on your knee. Or you go to the coffee shop and eat lots of cake. This is okay if you're nursing a child, but I had no excuses. My new friends are very cute and I'm so glad I had the chance to meet them!

 My friend Emma's little boy, Naiose. I'll spare you the shot I got of him puking just before this.

Leah, the lovely lady, spent DAYS smiling at me then when I went to take her pictures, this is all she'd give me! Hrmph! I promise you that she loved her some Kim!

It was a great trip and I was able to meet up with some other friends as well. It was pretty bitter sweet leaving Bristol airport and not knowing when I'll ever get to England again. I promised that we'd get a web cam to keep in touch!
