London is filled with such great history,
and we made sure to take in as much as we could.
I had the privilege of visiting Westminster Abbey many years ago,
and was so excited to be back again with my son.
It is truly an amazing place.

It was a packed day, but we had a blast.
One more London adventure to come...
Portobello Road, Gelato and Eels!!
Don't miss hearing about that one!
