Last week Boricua and I had a visit from my dad and grandparents. Here are some of the photos we (a mix of mostly my sister, Boricua and myself) took, in some small way I hope this post captures how much love and gratitude is in our hearts.
First, we visited LSE and St. Paul's Cathedral. Along the way we walked by the Royal Courts of Justice - with a wig shop nearby and everything!
Grammie gave us all a good laugh and herself quite a scare when we mistakenly got up to exit the tube, and as we sat back down she found herself sinking to the floor with no seat, yelling as she went. Londoners need a little wake up call on the tube anyway haha. The problem is that these particular seats fold up automatically!
They stayed near Paddington - it was a great location.
On our way to the Thames
Grammie wasn't entirely sure about the whole thing but she seemed to enjoy the view! It was very beautiful.
It rained and snowed at the top!
Back on solid ground. :)
Nando's and Shopping on Oxford Circus
I really love this store, which happens to share a nickname with my dad!
We enjoyed the food :)
From there we ventured to the famous shopping destination, Selfridges, and the less famous but more affordable, Primark!
Over the weekend I bowed out as I had a take-home exam to complete, but we did go to church on Sunday and Boricua (who was off due to a Bank Holiday) and the rest were able to go to Windsor Castle, Bath and Stonehenge on Monday!
Listening to the audio guide.
Once my sister and my maternal grandmother (Grandma) arrived and my take-home exam was completed, we visited two incredible museums.
It was that beautiful.
This was marked as a "shellfie."
This photo cracks me up.
Natural History Museum
Les Mis & Babaji
It was so exciting to see Les Miserables in London's West End. It was Boricua's first time and a favorite among the rest of us! Later on we tried Istanbul-style pide (similar to pizza) at Babaji, and Grammie had a happy reunion with her beloved friend.
