Our last big trip of the summer: England.  A couple of days in the English countryside and the remaining days in and around London.  Our precious goddaughter was christened.


And we were able to get acquainted with all things British.

Apparently, English bees aren’t aggressive so I was able to get close to them for some fun shots.


I wish I could say that we were in front of our summer home.

My boys.  What drove this trip is that my oldest is starting high school.  That means that we only have a few more summers with him home.  I’m feeling the time crunch with all the family things we want to do.  Going to England: check.st james park

Seeing an English goose: check.

Coffee on the Thames with a good friend.

And, of course, the family had to have Fish ‘n Chips!

It was a fun place to take pictures and a fun place to visit.  To be honest, London was a little much for me.  If (big if) we ever to go again, I think I’d spend most of our time in the countryside.  Maybe take a day or two to learn to drive, then visit some villages and estates.

England, you were beautiful.  Thanks for having us.

London is a bit like Paris: there are sights that all tourists want to tick off, but you don’t get a feel for the country until you leave. I hope that you had fun. If you’re scared of driving there, most villages have bus services, too – even the tiny ones in the area I am from

Craft Apple

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right? Well, crafting is my apple. It’s what I do to maintain my sanity while taking care of my family. I homeschool my three boys, ages 14, 15, and 16), am a quilter, a bagaholic, and pattern designer.  Oh – and I also like taking pictures.
