Boat Rides, Birthday Cake and a Giveaway!



Hi all I am now back in America, so pleased to be home, we had a wonderful adventure, overall many great memories, saw elephants, palaces, my sis in laws wedding, meet friends and family, and ate well.




We did get sick in India and Jasmine didn't eat well and had tummy upsets but thats just a reality and no reason not to enjoy India and smile at the memories. On our return to America we stopped in the UK for the weekend to celebrate my Grandma's 80th birthday it was a wonderful family get together.




We hired a boat for about 30 people and went along the river in Boston Lincolnshire ate lunch and cut the first of many cakes!, the church in the background is Boston stump




my wonderful Grandma 




on Sunday we ate dinner in London's Westfield mall, impressive and a nice way to relax before flying back 




Jasmine monkeying around in the information stand!




you know your in England when you see these!




Noodles at wagamama one of our favorite UK chains, awesome Japanese food - Slurp!




Me!





I got one of these wonderful loose leaf teas in India, and adored the name, simply comment and in a week I will randomly pick a winner and ship it to anywhere in the World
