Spring Break in London

Last year, Japan - this year, London.  In Japan, it was just Laurie and Dylan.  This year, Chip was able to go too.  Their Spring Breaks are very international.  It's funny, because everyone else goes to Florida for Spring Break!

Chip and Dylan admiring this Ram in a Thicket at the British Museum.  This was Dylan's favorite .
From From Ur, southern Iraq, about 2600-2400 BC

Our guys in front of Windsor Castle!

An 800 pound egg at Harrod's.  It didn't weigh 800 pounds, it costs 800 pounds!  That's about $1200 American!  We figure that it must be hollow, or else it might actually weigh 800 pounds...

Changing the Horse Guard at Buckingham Palace.  Evidently one of the horses didn't really want to be there on this day - he just kind of ran around in circles, while the other horses stayed very calm and carried on :)

Dylan in Westminster Abbey, standing by what is billed as Britain's Oldest Door.

Laurie was delighted with the Hobnobs.  Dylan thought they were just some sort of cracker, and he wasn't very impressed!

Overall, Dylan said his favorite thing was the Tower of London.  I'm glad they had a chance to go there and see the Crown Jewels.

They also took a day trip out west to Stonehenge and Bath, but the weather was cold, windy and rainy, and so it wasn't as enjoyable as it should have been.
