UK Tid-bits

This is one of my favorite pictures from London.  We were walking the kids home from school and here come the Bobbies walking up the street on their horses.  Man, did I feel safe.  I saw them walking in the neighborhood most of the days I was there.  I asked Simon when they come to clean up after the horses and he said that they don't; they just leave it there; and the next day that was confirmed.  However, they must feed their horses something different than we feed ours here because the odor just wasn't there and it decomposed rather quickly.  I was glad to see this because it would greatly take away from the romance of having the Bobbies walking up and down your neighborhood daily.  (I love how smart Cameron looks in his cap).

                 Nothing can describe the joy in this picture of when Gordon arrived in London.
   What to do if you're out shopping in London in the rain without a raincoat for the wee one. (This was Grandpa's creation.)

It's been nine months now since Scott and Clare got married.  We got some wonderful family photos and I realize I've never shared them.  We didn't realize at the time that four of the Grandkids would be moving to London or that a new little .lady would be joining the family.  I love this picture of Gordon and I with the grandkids, my helmet hair excluded.

One of my friends on facebook said this after I posted the family picture below, "What a gorgeous mass of humanity!"  I have to say that I think so too.  I am very proud of my family.  We have worked hard for it.  Weddings are happy times.  Every time I see this picture I think about that day, and the feelings we had with all our children and their spouses in the temple.
