We've been wanting to get the kids back down to London so on Saturday, August 1, we headed down on the train. Our first stop was the Tower of London. Above is a picture of Steve with the kids in front of it. One of our first stops once inside the Tower was to get some lunch. We are all in better moods when we have full tummies. Then we were off to see the Tower.

Cason at lunch.
After we finished lunch, we headed outside only to find a sword fight going on. This is a picture of us watching the fight.

Leah happily riding on daddy's back.
Steve and the kids with the Tower Bridge in the background.
A very nice, American gentleman offered to take our picture. I think it came out pretty well.
Mommy and most of the kids with a guard in the background.
Nathanael watching the guard.

We have to admit, the Tower of London was not our favorite castle (we like Windsor and Edinburgh Castles much better). We did however really like seeing the English Crown Jewels. It was incredible seeing videos and pictures of Queen Elizabeth's corination and then seeing the amazing jewels.

Dad and Andrew on the Tube.
Our next stop was Hamley's, a huge toy store. I think we may have been a little nuts to take our kids there, since it is such an incredibly busy store. It wasn't too bad and we even got out of there without buying anything. We did buy the kids a small item back at the Tower of London earlier, so they didn't even ask at Hamley's.
