Before They’re Lost…

One of my favorite experiences of 2013 was our trip to Jolly Old England. Here are some photos that our son and daughter in law took that I’ve just downloaded. I’m tying up some loose ends before I move full bore ahead into 2014!J & L's England 002Setting up the SatNav for our trip to the Manchester United Soccer game in Manchester, England.

J & L's England 108Josh and Laura managed to get a photo of our great tour guide in London. He really made the tour a highlight of ours with all his knowledge.

I got to write 2014 on a check today. Katie and I had our hair done and her red hair is more vibrant and my grey hairs are covered up. She’s heading to California this weekend to spend some time with her cousins. She’ll get to visit Disneyland before all the Christmas decorations are taken down. She’ll also be able to visit my dear old pop. Dear mentioned that he gets 2 Mondays this week and 2 Fridays. Makes for a bit of disorientation on what day of the week it really is. How are you managing with Christmas and New Year’s landing on Wednesdays?

  1. Oh I am glad that Katie will be visiting California to see the sights, but mostly to see her grandfather. A good tour guide is a great blessing!

  2. Wonderful pictures Ellen! The Bishop’s Close in Wells is especially nice – you should frame that one. We live near Stratford and the Avon River runs through it – Stratford, Ontario that is! Not quite as picturesque perhaps but you should come sometime……we’d love to have you!

  3. Great photos, Ellen. A trip to remember. So glad that Katie will be able to spend some time with her grandfather.
    I can’t keep track of what day it is with the celebratory days in the middle of the week.

  4. A trip you will never forget. Wonderful pictures….glad they were passed on to you for more good memories to savour and share with us.
