london, england

In honor of the Olympics {we’ve been glued to our television} here are some photos from a couple of our trips to London this year. You’ll notice that the trip I took with my friends was in the middle of January and freeeeeezing cold {this explains the dorky London hats we bought at the Tower Bridge gift store} and the trip with Brandon and his parents was in the middle of May and a little better, but still chilly. There’s a lot to see in London so it was hard for me to narrow down the hundreds of photos we took for this post, but I picked a few of our favorites.

Has anyone else been to London? What was your favorite part? I did a Changing of the Guard tour with my girlfriends in January and I’d have to say that was my most memorable experience. Our tour guide was hilarious and he had us running all over Buckingham Palace!

      It’s so overwhelming! People everywhere and so much to do/see. I’d love to go one more time before we leave but we’re out of time!

    Once again, totally jealous! We want to go to Europe someday, but with baby on the way it’ll probably be a few years.

    I’d love to go back and sit in the pubs and drink Stella. Thank goodness the Brits understand the true meaning in an attitude adjustment.

    Love this post! I was in London in April for my honeymoon and absolutely loved the city. Unfortunately we weren’t able to get to Buckingham Palace :( It was the London Marathon so the road to the Palace was packed with runners. Kind of disappointing but we saw so much that it was okay. Can’t wait to go back one day :)
