If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?

London for Thanksgiving

My Mother and I headed to London for Thanksgiving to visit my Cousins who have been living there for the past 6 months. It was fun to have a buddy to run around the city with, hopping on the tube to see every Museum with good art we could manage to visit while catching glimpses of famous sights while on the way.

The look of the street we stayed on in Notting Hill.

Buckingham Palace.

A crown on top of some thing in front of the Palace.

The London Eye.They don't have exits, they have "way outs."
Big Ben.

My mum and I went to the Cabinet War Rooms where Winston Churchill strategized WWII.

St. Paul's Cathedral

The Thames River.

The Tate Modern Museum had a huge exhibit by Carsten Höller.

He made these slides that were really tall. I went down the 5 story high slide. It was so fun and fast it took my stomach.

Cars in London

Burough Market

A market in London to get very fresh things. Like right off the farm or right from the country.

It was a bit nippy there.
My mom walking around looking for something yummy to eat.
Squid eating a shark.

Fresh Boar, and rabbits among other things.

This mannequin really enjoys her bed.

Alice in Wonderland display. I thought these photos were appropriate for this blog.


My mom looks like Kenny from South Park in her big coat.

My Cousins in London

These are the cousins who I lived with for a year and a half during part of my years at BYU. It was fun to reminisce about those days. I loved being around them again. They are a very close family and get along extremely well. I didn't witness one fight during my stay in London for 8 days. They were very generous to share their tight quarters.

Me, Paige and Eliza walking around Portabello St. shopping for various random clothes and accessories.
This family gets along really well. Notice how they all pile on George while he's trying to sleep and he doesn't even get mad.
Darling Camilla in her new socks.Paige is quite but is a firecracker on the soccer field. (That means she's fast and fearless.)
Sam, is a character. He keeps us all entertained with his precocious thoughts. Here he is reading poetry from his William Wordsworth book.

Saturday Night

Saturday night Jared and I headed up to the city for a rooftop party.

Too many people loaded onto the elevator. Right after someone said, "I hope we don't have too many people," a kind woman's voice said, "overload, please step off." So two people kindly did and waited for the next elevator and then the voice said, "thank you for you patience." I thought that was hilarious.
Surprisingly it was wasn't too cold on top. We had a beautiful view of the bay and city.
These photos are a bit blurry because there was an earthquake, (y'know being San Francisco and all) and it shook my arm while I took them.
