Adventures In England--Day 35

Friday, April 22, 2011
We both woke up excited because we were suppose to meet Ange and Ana, my sister and niece, in London. We got to the London Eye, our meeting spot, and started the search. Little did we know but it would be a busy weekend so finding each other wasn't as easy as we thought. It was so nice to see a familar face and even better that we were planning on exploring Scotland and more of England together with those familar faces.
Our first stop was the London Eye. It was such a nice sunny day so once we got up to the top we could see most of London. It was fun searching across the skyline for some of the more famous buildings in London. Since this was Ana's first time to London, we made sure to take her to all the touristy spots but we also made sure to hit a few of the spots that we hadn't been able to get to during our previous trips into London. The Wellington Arch was something that I had marked on my list of things to do. Once we got there, we were given free admission to the top so we could look down into Buckingham Gardens.
Throughout the day we walked, walked and then walked a few more blocks until our little legs would hardly lift themselves. Even though we walked so much, we couldn't complain. The weather was beautiful and we got to see so much...the living wall, some beautiful parks and all of the craziness for the Royal wedding.Around 7:00pm, we finally decided to head back to Epsom, with the girls in tow. We made a comfy bed in the floor of our apartment using chair cushions and called it a night. It was such a great day and we were excited for the next few days because we knew that the next few days would be just as great!!
