My son celebrated his 11th Birthday, which meant a friends tea party and a family tea party to organise. All went well..... He then visited the National Space Centre near Leicester, with his school on the actual day of his birthday, which he described as Awesome! And then for his Birthday present from us, we all went as a family on a sightseeing weekend to London....
Visiting the Dinosaurs section of the Natural History Museum, which he loved!
Especially the life like T Rex
And the large Blue Whale
We then caught the Tube to Green Park, walking through St James Park to Buckingham Palace, where the Guard very kindly did a routine, which really impressed my son, we then carried on down the Mall, heading for Trafalgar Square, and from there to Westminster, passing Downing Street along the way. We walked over Westminster Bridge and headed for our trip on this...
The London Eye ( the 4D film they show you beforehand is excellent )
Sorry the photo's aren't better! But a really enjoyable experience
Next day (Fathers Day) was a boys trip to Arsenal Football Club, for a trip around the ground, changing rooms etc
We had then wanted to visit the Tate Modern, but short of time after spending so long at Arsenal, and with some of the Tube lines not running, we decided to spend some time on the Southbank, before catching our train home....
All in all a lovely weekend, which we plan to repeat again soon.
I seem to have been playing catch up ever since, and what with the hot weather, World Cup ( say no more about that), Wimbledon, I am still playing catch up, anyhow I have managed to upload some New Products onto the Country Style Living website
