It was her first time out of the USA so I wanted to make the most of it.
|She was talking during the picture taking as always...|
|Selfridge's Photo Booth Fun Time!|
My four favorite things we did while she was here:
1) I surprised her with a day trip to Paris! Stamp #2 in her brand new passport! She was really overwhelmed at first and then quickly fell in love with the city like we all do. We left the train station, hopped in a taxi straight to the Eiffel Tower, I was able to show her where Mike proposed which I thought was really cool, from there onto a city bus tour, from there Musee Rodin to see the Thinker, from there a nice walk to the Louvre and then back to the train station...
|Mom and E.T.|
|My step dad use to love the Thinker so seeing this was a pretty big deal.|
#2) Taking her to see Thriller Live. 7th row seats! She LOVES her some Michael Jackson. She danced and clapped all night. We had a great time. Nonstop smiling!
|Yes all 4 of us were in that car for 1.5 hours. Quite comfortably actually.|
#4) Walking across the Abbey Road cross walk on John Lennon's 70th Birthday!
Did we have a great time? Yes!
Did we miss anything from the must do list? Not really!
Did she make it home safely all by herself? Yes!
For those who don't know I went to the States to pick her up.
Do I miss her? Yep!
My Mom and I had the best week of our lives together while she was visiting us in London. No fights just fun. I'm really glad she took the time and made the effort to make the long journey so I could show her my new city and why I love it so much.
Thanks Mike for putting up with us all week.
