London in a Flash

We had only three full days in London but we made the most of it, with a whirlwind visit hitting all the highlights, including a Europa League game, Arsenal Stadium and the historic spots like Covent Garden, the Tower of London and Parliament.

Seeing The Arsenal

Our soccer-filled weekend in London was only getting started, when the boys ventured to Arsenal stadium just a few stops from our home base. We got to see many places that fans only dream of, and walk in the footsteps of greatness.

Live from the Premier League

The family has become a bit more soccer (football) obsessed thanks to O, and what better way to take in the game than in a Premier League stadium – West Ham to be exact. We caught the Europa League Round of 16, where the Irons had a commanding 5-0 win over Germany‚Äôs Freiburg. It was…

Olympic Aspirations

Colin got Olympic fever in London, that is in toy store playing and playground adventuring. On the most epic day of the trip, we visited two playgrounds and two toy stores. With no rest for the weary, we set out the next day for a visit in Olympic Park. For some reason, the Brits love…
