LOL. . . well, I've finally started to download my pictures from our trip, and I thought I'd share a few. . .you all saw some of the pics from the tea that Rosie, G, Steph and I had. . . it was just so fun. But what you didn't know was that I was late getting there. . . we (my family) "thought" we'd take in the changing of the guard that morning at Buckingham Palace, but it turned out to be a bigger thing than planned . . . and not hundreds of more people, but thousands! It turned out to be the celebration for the Queen's birthday - where she and the Royal Family leave the palace by carriage accompanied by a full military detail. She receives a military review, then comes back to the palace and then they have a military fly over for her. Very impressive! Well. . . we ended up right in the middle of it. . . and because of that (not being able to get out of the crush of people) I was late getting to tea. . . I told Rosie she could blame the Queen :-) Here are a few pics . . . !

Wow! Perfect timing! What a great experience. I can't wait to see how you scrap the memory.

Superb! I only realised it was going on in the train on the way, when I heard an excited school group talking about it - how could I have missed that? If I had known, we would have gone up a little earlier too. How did you get such an amazing view?

It just was luck . . . Some people were leaving and others moving in so we just shifted and shifted until we were close to the road. We met this sweet lady and her family there - she lives outside London too. She said she comes in every year for the event, and this was her grandson's birthday request, so she let us get closer in and we "shared" her space. I was able to get some good shots but I did get some 'loser' shots too. . . I had a pole on the left and a guard and Bobby on the right so I only had a short view point. :-) I had the camera on continuous mode so I shot a lot of quick pics at one time and hoped for the best! LOL
