The Child is in London

July 18th, 2013 at 08:10 pm

Whew! What a week! We've been very "On the Go" and/or just a lot of stuff going on.

The older child made it to London, with the Grandparents.

For those who missed it, MIL has been planning this trip like her whole life. She was going on and on about this when I was pregnant with her first Grandchild. She wants to take all her Grandkids "anywhere they choose" on their 10th birthdays. So, BM is the eldest Grandchild, and she is now realizing her big dream. (& she will be busy traveling the next few years, with all the Grandkids so close in age).

Interestingly, for as much as they love to travel, they have never been to Europe before??

Thank Goodness for skype! Actually, he is very mature and adventurous and I am sure he would have been just fine. & it's been so busy here that I have barely had time to miss him. BUT, since we do have skype, he's skyped us about 10 times already, and that is nice too. Wink

    What a cool trip to take with the grandkids! Memories to last a lifetime!

    Hope they have a great time, survive the British heat, and are there when the baby arrives!

    London is great. I'm sure they've done the double-decker bus tour, but if they haven't, they should. Best day I ever spent in London was because of that bus. You get to see like 80% of the "must see" sites on one relatively-cheap trip. I'm not sure, but I think kids get a slight discount.

    I second what wino said. Plus, the "City of London Museum" is neat--it has a circular path thru history--very accessible; my son enjoyed it when he was young and so did I.

    I'm sure he'll have a great time! He might want to go back...and show you all the sites. Smile

    They just found the free London wifi, so I am getting MORE skype calls now. They are definitely having fun!

    How exciting - He will probably be there when the royal baby is born, but of course he may not care at all about that. My late grandparents took each of their grandchildren on a "special trip" at the age of 12. We went by ferry from Seattle to Vancouver, BC for 1 night/2 days. It was very special and I'll never forget how wonderful it was to have "alone" time with those wonderful people. I'm sure your son will cherish the memories more and more as he grows older.
