London, England

WHEW! We made it! This is my very last post from our trip! I never thought I would get through all of those pictures! After we got back from Paris we spent a couple of days in London seeing the sites with my parents. There are little to no pictures from this section of the trip for three reasons. 1- it was pouring the entire time and most of the time we were without an umbrella. 2- Rob and I had been to these places before and 3- it was the tail end of a 3 week trip, I was sort of done taking pictures. Nonetheless, here are the few pictures I did take. While in London we went on a river cruise, saw Greenwich, went on a walking tour of the major sites of London, took a big red bus tour, and saw lots of shows! Rhonda surprised us the day we got back from Paris with tickets to Mamma Mia, only a major dream come true for me! We also saw Shrek! the musical and Ghost. 

Rob once performed drums in this building


The Tower of London

Paris, France

When Rob and I were planning this trip long before we went, we realized that it would be over our one year anniversary. We decided that it would be our anniversary present to ourselves to take the train from London to Paris and spend 3 days in Paris. It was such a beautiful trip, some rain, but overall gorgeous and so much fun. Rob and I love Paris so much, and it is such a special place for us and our story since Rob proposed to me on the top of the Eifel Tower. So, here are some pictures from our one year anniversary!

Our dinner one night, YUM

crepes anyone?

Lavenham, England

After Rome we spent a few days traveling around close to Rob's house. One day we went to Lavenham to walk around some antique shops and have afternoon tea (which translates into afternoon hot chocolate for Rob and I- just can't beat that European chocolate). We also got to go walk around Rob's school but I don't have any pictures because it was raining too hard 
(shocking, I know)

The Crooked House

We NEED one of these

little British flags were everywhere for the Queen's Jubilee- so cute!

Rob refused to kiss with me in this phone booth- he said it was a gross one.
Looks so cute with the flowers though!

The crew at afternoon tea

mmm lemon sponge cake with hot chocolate- so good!
