So what did we do you ask?
Well, we slept late a few mornings, did a little shopping for birthday parties and summer clothes, had a picnic at Kew Gardens with some friends, went to The London Zoo in Regents Park and did a day trip to Legoland in Windsor.
Was it a long week....YES....but, we did squeeze in a lot of fun and laughs too!! Here are some pictures of the zoo and Legoland!

Mandy and I LOVED it...Ryan, not so much!
This baby monkey was hysterical...
didn't sit still long enough for a good shot.
We were able to walk into a Monkey habitat where they roming free inside...
they literally were within reach
Walking back to the tube through Queen Mary's Royal Gardens
LegoLand is located in Windsor. Once through the main ticket gate, you come to an overlook and are able to see Windsor Castle in the distance.
Overall we had a great day, there were a TON of people, so lines were long making it hard to get on all the rides we wanted. We were able to stop periodically and build things with Legos as well as see a lot of really impressive Lego creations!
