Wales of Fun and a Wicked Good Time...

This past weekend we took a break from jolly ole London and headed for Wales...to the capital city of Cardiff to be exact. The girls had a great time on the train and it was nice to break things up a little. We were able to visit Castle Cardiff that was really neat. We climbed a really big tower and watched a real sword fight. We were able to tour the rooms of the Castle that were refurbished in the late 1800's.

It rained a lot whilst we were there but that did not stop the fun. The hotel had a large indoor pool with a hot tub. We put on our suits and off we went. The kiddos had a BLAST! Other Guy and I enjoyed just kicking back with the girls and staying in a pretty sweet hotel. Thanks to Other Guy's points, it was all free too, which made it even sweeter. We also took an open top tour bus to see some of the cities sites. We visited some museums and the girls were able to ride a merry go round. We had lunch and then headed to the train station. Here are a few photos...as you can see, Curly was worn out:







This week and last, London does something called Kids Theatre Week. During these two weeks, they lower the age requirements to go to shows and offer lots of different specials. The girls have really enjoyed watching The Wizard of Oz so we decided to take our chances and take them to the musical Wicked. (for those of you who don't know, it's a spin off of sorts from Wizard of Oz) So, we bought really cheap tickets (in case we had to leave), got the girls all dressed up and headed out for a family date night. The girls LOVED IT! It was so cute to hear them talking ninety miles a minute when we left the show. They knew some of the songs already because their mommy loves that show and has the CD. I wish you could have seen their faces all during the show. They were completely taken. Unfortunately, no pics during the show, but here is a little video of them. It is really dark but you will get the point.

Well, gotta run, housework and laundry calls. I'll post more pics soon.

Peace Out!

no that didn't make me miss you guys even more. okay, yeah it did.

Sounds like an incredible time y'all are having in the land of "whilst." These are experiences the girls will remember forever (Moe might need photo reminders, but she'll remember).

btw, you'll be home 4 weeks from TODAY! Won't be long before we can start counting in days rather than weeks. sigh.

Wow! I can't believe you got to see Wicked again! I'm so happy for you guys. So happy that the girls liked it so much. We saw the pictures you posted today of Wales. They are great! What are the odds that you would find horses named after two special little girls here in Kansas??? We miss you guys so much. It won't be long now and you'll be home. We hope you have fun as your adventures continue....We love you. Susan says hello and wishes she was there too!!! Mumsy and Popsy
