St. Pauls

So remember last friday when I did a whole recap post of London and pretended to be done posting about my trip. That was all a lie. I have a lot more left to say about London so I hope you still want to read about it.

As you may know, St. Paul's = one of my favorite places in London. So when I found out they had a million and a half Easter services there was no way I wasn't going.


Lex, Ellen, and I hit up the Singles Ward for Sacrament meeting and tubed over to my favorite Cathedral of all time.


It was a really great service. It was mostly all music and let me tell you, those little boys can sing.

The Anglican church really knows how to put on a beautiful service.


I have had so many very cool cultural experiences in London and I am really going to miss that once now that I am home.

The Hunger Games.

If you have ever read this blog you will probably know that I am a fan of The Hunger Games series....or at least I was.

I read the first book and LOVED it. I also really loved the movie. So I assumed that the second and third book would be just as good.

But I was wrong.

I am about 3/4 done with the 3rd book and it is all I can do to force myself to keep reading. But at the same time I can't stop.

I can't bear to read anymore but I can't not read it.

Wesley was right. This is just like cocaine.

Well actually I have no experience with cocaine so it probably isn't like cocaine at all.

All I can say is this better get better. Because I am sure it can't get too much worse.

If you have read the books and had a similar feeling please talk to me. I am going crazy about these books!

Recap.

No one could ever be bored of reading about London so I am giving the people what they want and composing the longest post in the history of forever.

I am addicted to London and I don't want to forget a thing. So here is a little recap of some of the major things we did.

We started off by going on a walk through most of the major parts of London. We were all jetlagged and I don't even remember this day.


Good thing pictures exist...

Piccidilly!
This is the front door to the London Center. We got pretty familiar with this door


Windsor Castle was fun...sandwiches always taste better at castles.

And the boys always look better at Eton.


We saw some sights.




Buckingham Palace

Hampton Court

The horse guards were especially cool...if you are my dad.


We spent a lot of time in Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. But even the amount of time we spend was not enough. If you ever go to London go to the park. Best thing to do!

It is free too!



We even saw some famous people.


You may think I am lying but that is Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) and her fiance Jamie Campbell Bower (Caius from Twilight and Grindewald from Harry Potter)


And that is Harry Potter with Ivy. She's going to win an Oscar one day so Daniel is going to be really happy I took this picture.


Dover Castle was spectacular



Oxford was literally the coldest place on the planet the day we went there but it was worth it just to see Queen's College!


Took a quick flight to Barcelona!

To see some Gaudi stuff




 But mostly to watch Barcelona beat Valencia!

"Barca Barca Barca!!!"


Sports were a very important part of our curriculum, well we made them important.
Visits to Wimbledon and watching soccer matches were a common occurence. 



Stourhead, Wales, and Lights blew our minds.




While Stonehedge was a slight disappointment.


We all got fat at Borough Market and Covent Garden



Chunneled to Paris to channel our inner Parisians


And do some "Tebowing"


Our trip to the north was breath taking. Between the Lake District, Edinburgh, and Fountain's Abbey we were all in awe of the beauty of this earth.




The naan wasn't too shabby either.


Lets just sum it all up by saying we had the time of our lives and we will never forget it!

The End.

My last day with the London Ladies wa truly one of the best. There is nothing I can say to explain it so I will just dump a bunch of pictures.












It doesn't get much better than this!!!
