In my School Holiday I went to London ...

.......... and I saw Peter Pan:



paddled in the Princess Diana Fountain with my Daddy:


went to the Tower of London, saw the Queen's jewels and met a Beefeater:


chased pigeons in Trafalgar Square:



went on the London Eye:


spent seven hours in the Science Museum (yes, really, seven hours, mummy counted) where I saw Wallace and Gromit:


and went to Buckingham Palace to see the Changing of the Guard. The Queen wasn't in, but on the way there I met one of her guards:



but the best bit about my holiday in London was ...........





...... having hot chocolate and a chocolate muffin for breakfast!

(Yes, that last one was what she put in her 'news' book at school!)

My boy did that too - took him to the Natural History Museum to see the dinosaur...he remembers the enormous cookie in the cafe.

What a fantastic school holiday - she's one lucky little girl. I'm with her on the chocolate and muffin part, they beat the london eye hands down lol x

That's funny, makes you wonder why you bother with all the cultural bit. You might as well have stayed at home with cocoa and a bun!!!

Seriously though, it looks like you had a fab time :)

We took the Beautiful Children to Florida in all it's full Disneyfied glory for 3 weeks and my daughter then aged 6 wrote about a picnic she had at her aunt's in Glasgow in her "what did we do over the summer" thing.

yes we felt it was 8 grand well spent too

They all do it.

Last year eldest son wrote in his diary at school after we'd been on holiday to Shark Bay, a World Heritage Site where he'd been on a catamaran and seen dolphins, sharks, sea snakes, dugongs and many more wonderful creatures, that he'd liked eating his breakfast in the car on the journey!

We could have just driven there and back and given him food on the way and he'd have been happy!

Ho hum.

Looks like a fabulous trip. I love London. I used to live in the South and I do miss day trips there. Good to see the Diana fountain open again. It was closed when I last visited.

Impressed with 7 hours in the museum! Sounds like you had a busy time!

Jacki said...

I could spend that long in a science museum. :-)

Great pictures, and great memories.
