Having Tea with the Queen!

Last Sunday Jeremy and I took a trip down to London with a friend to visit the imperial war museum. This was Jeremy's first trip to London and he had a really great time. We can't wait to go back so I can spend more time showing him the sights while it's light outside. It was really neat to see all of the historic stuff...but since I'm not way big into history, I just got a little bored and started taking pictures of everything. Jeremy and our friend Ian on the other hand had a great time! I will say it was interesting and I did learn a lot, but I will say that once we were finished with the 6 levels of history I was seriously ready to go eat some dinner! We went to the Hardrock Cafe in London which was the first one ever built. There I did learn some history...did you know thta the hard rock was started by 2 American Guys in 1971. They opened it up near Hyde Park in London in an old Rolls Royce dealership. However it wasn't until 1979 when they started collecting Rock Memorobillia when Eric Clapton (a regulare at the London restaurant) donated a guitar so they would save him a his favorite table in the restuarant! This began the collecting of the Rock and Roll memorobillia from all around the world! See I told you that I learned something :) Here are some of our pictures from the day...





A piece of the Berlin Wall







That's Buckingham Palace back there!



This sign was on the outside of the Hard Rock. I thought it was pretty funny!

AND FOR ALL YOU HARRY POTTER FANS! There really is a Platform 9 and 3/4!!





Off to Hogworts we go!

This isn't a very good picture, but I think it's still pretty cute!
