a fun few days with my parents
last week, my parents were in town!
it is always such a treat to have them here in london. they love this city as much as we do, so we all soak up its magic together … and it’s just great to have them around the flat, and to share meals and conversations and laughs with them.
it’s even more fun having my parents visiting us now that little mo is here. i love seeing my baby with his grammie and grandfather and moses just adores them both so much!
a few photos from our days together…
^^ i took rick and linda to lunch at ottolenghi, my favourite. mom and dad are great appreciators of fresh, pretty and delicious food like me :) ^^
^^ walks through leicester square (that entire big ben is made of tiny legos!) and notting hill ^^
^^ my dad is the master of this move, which we call “the trick.” moses loves it!! ^^
^^ a gelato run after dinner one night ^^
my dad and i went on a bike ride together one morning. it was chilly but so sunny and we had such a great time cruising past famous london landmarks (we hit buckingham palace right as the changing of the guard was happening!) and then through the parks. i love hanging out with my dad so much.
as a side note, did you know that, starting soon (no one is sure exactly when…), big ben is going to be covered up with scaffolding for three years?! ahhh! i am trying to take as many pictures of/with it while it’s still uncovered!
^^ borough market with grammie. grandfather got lost on his bike ride over – whoops! ^^
^^ pretty sunsetty light over the thames down to tower bridge on our way back from borough market ^^
^^ watching the inauguration … dad’s expression pretty accurately portrays our feelings about it … we are all praying for our country and our leaders! ^^
^^ at the natural history museum just before we said goodbye (for now) to mom and dad. always doing the trick ;) ^^
such a great few days with rick and linda. one of the highlights (that i didn’t get a picture of) was going to beautiful: the carole king musical together. ian and i bought four tickets to that show as a christmas present to mom and dad. and we were so glad they ended up loving the show, which was full of music from “their era.” we all four had a really great time! and moses successfully survived his first non-family babysitter :)
we get to see mom and dad again this week as they come back through london on their way home from switzerland! and then again in utah in march and at bear lake in july. so glad that, even though we live so far away, moses gets to often see his grammie and grandfather!
