Easter Bunny

For Bobby's first Easter, it was amazing that the Easter bunny knew to come and visit our house... and ironically, the Easter bunny knew to fill the basket with Em and my favorite candy, chocolate, and treats. Bobby gets Easter milk, and so I guess someone should eat all this delicious candy!

We had a Wharton LDSSA Easter Egg Hunt with all of our friends. Bobby was really good at spotting all the eggs. We also dyed our own hard-boiled eggs ... and it was obvious that Em is a much better artist than me. We had a great Easter weekend and holiday.

I guess it is only fair to show Bobby since we have hogged the blog with pics of us. While we were enduring Paris/London - it appears that Bobby and Carol were just having the times of their lives. Some people have it so easy!

Paris and London

Had a great little trip to Paris and London for a week! We started in Paris – toured Notre Dame then Sainte Chappelle, before strolling along the Champs-Elysees and climbing the Arc de Triomphe. Had a great first day just spending time together and enjoying Paris.

The next morning, we took the Eurostar to London. We were supposed to leave at 7 am, but did not show up early enough to make it through customs/security – but were put on the 8 am.

I LOVED London! Really great city! The first day we went to Buckingham Palace and saw the changing of the guards. We toured the Tower of London, the British Library (saw the Magna Carta) then saw St. Paul’s cathedral and hiked up the dome to get a great view of the city. We finished the day off by strolling from Piccadilly Circus to Trafalgar Square down to Parliament and Westminster/Big Ben. We ate dinner at the original Hard Rock CafĂ© (which included a trip to their museum, where I actually got to hold one of Gene Simmon’s Kiss guitars!)

The next day we took a bus tour through Windsor Castle (the main residence of Queen Elizabeth II), then on to Bath – to see the Roman baths, and then finally to Stonehenge! It was an incredible day! Once getting back to London, we went shopping at Harrod’s, went to the Albert and Victoria museum, and then had Fish’n’chips at a local pub!

Our last day in London we did a double decker bus tour, strolled around Notting Hill at the Portobello Market, Abbey Road, Hyde Park/Speaker’s Corner, then went to the British museum (Rosetta Stone), and toured Westminster Abbey. We took the Eurostar back to Paris. We almost wish we had 1 more day in London – because there were a few sites we were unable to see. Overall – it was a great trip!

Our last full-day in Paris, we went to the Louvre, went to Sacre-Coure and walked around Montemartre. We then just walked around Notre Dame and the Latin quarter, had dinner, and went to Trocadero Square to see the Eiffle Tower sparkle! It was a fantastic day! Enjoy the pics below!
