My brother, Jeremiah (Beau) came with his awesome wife Amy and their two cute little boys to London for 7 wonderful, fun-filled, and completely sunny (!!!) days this past week. It was so much fun to have two little boys running around our flat. We saw so much while they were here...and they saw even more when we couldn't go with them! Borough Market, Big Ben, Buckingham, Piccadilly, Covent Garden, Portobello Road, all kinds of delicious food, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and Regents Park were some of the highlights. On Saturday, we even ventured all the way to the southern coast of England, to the white cliffs of Beachy Head.
Just landing at the station by Beachy Head, with picnic in hand. We walked about a mile in from the road to the beach, where we sat down by the water and enjoyed our yummy lunch. The kids threw rocks in the water, while Beau and Amy made sure fearless Christian didn't run straight into the water. :) There is just something about being out in nature on a perfect day that just fills you up with so much peaceful happiness.
After our picnic, we climbed the steepest hill I've ever seen to the top of the cliffs. All of the adults had a child or a stroller in hand on our way...quads and calves were most certainly on fire.
These cliffs were so much higher than they appear...and total sheer drops. I'm not typically a fearful person when it comes to stuff like this, but I couldn't even get within 5 feet of the edge without my stomach doing flips. Plus, there were no barriers! The cliffs were gorgeous and stretched on as far as the eye could see and fell into crystal blue water below.
These two...I love them both so much.
Lauren's favorite thing during the week was loving on Christian (aka "Fishy")- they were so sweet and cuddly with each other. Those boys are just so sweet. And, my girls haven't stopped begging for a baby brother since they left!
Beau and Amy are so fun to hang around- we stayed up way too late many nights just chatting. We are so glad they came to visit!!
