Last night me, Rocky, Tori, Hannah and Erin went and saw Stomp. The theatre is down right in Leicester Square, which means it's in a crowded part of town. We dressed up a little stomp-ish ourselves, and had front row seats. It was so much fun, and we made an extremely fun night out of it. I have so many plays, and they have all been a blast!

If you want to see an amazing dance cast that can make music with almost anything, see Stomp!

London at Night

Today was another great day! Tonight Liz and I decided to take the #11 bus, which dropped us right in Parliament. I was planning on taking pictures with both cameras, but I left the battery of my 40D plugged in, and so I couldn't use it! I am planning on going back with a tripod and that camera to take some fun night pictures!

A night out on the town!

Big Ben baby!

How fun is this?

Another day of F.U.N.

I had a long list of things I planned on accomplishing today, like going to the bank, the post office, returning something, homework, and a few loads of laundry. I must admit - absolutely none of that got done. Instead, I went after breakfast to St. Martin's Theatre with some girls and purchased tickets to Mousetrap. It's in Leicester Square, which is next to Covent Garden, which means lots of shops and surprises. On my way home from getting tickets, Betsy and I ran into a unique little bead shop and ended up spending three hours making even more unique London charm bracelets! We were proud of ourselves for being so spontaneous. I was proud of myself for having the patience to finish the bracelet.Sometimes, when you don't plan on making a bracelet beforehand, you're not showered and ready for the day.I know, it looks like a million bucks.Let's play a game - how many times can Meg drop her beads? Answer: twice. The sad part is my bracelet didn't even entail the use of beads.The finished product! Each charm has a special meaning or memory of London.

Tonight we went to Mousetrap. It's London's longest running play ever (yes I've heard this before, but this one has been running 56 years), and was written by Agatha Christie. I really enjoyed it, as I do all murder mysteries.Britnee, Alysia, Amanda, Kaitlyn, Me, Liz and Betsy at Mousetrap.

EASTER Sunday!

Today I woke up to snow in London on Easter! Instead of walking through the freezing cold park, Betsy and I decided to figure our the bus schedule to Exhibition Road where the church is. About an hour later, and two bus changes later, we were probably farther away from where we needed to be than when we began. It was definitely an adventure. After sacrament, I went to St. Paul's Cathedral and went to Easter EvenSong. St. Paul's was a great experience, and very different from anything I've ever been to!Mom and Dad: this is one of two Easter dresses you got me - Thanks! The other one is much cuter. Once I went outside, I realized my church outfit needed a major makeover; socks, boots, jacket, and an umbrella.I met Liz at the front of St. Paul's just before the program. We sat on the front row even though it was absolutely packed. The choir made their way out of the Cathedral after Mass, around the side of St. Paul's.St. Paul's.
