London, UK - Tower of London

My parents have been in town the past two weeks and we have LOVED having them here!  Blue Rock loves and adores them and we do too!  We have been able to take some really nice trips while they are here.  Two weekends ago we went to Berlin, which we loved!  I'll blog about that later.  This past week/weekend we spent in London.  We left last Thursday morning and returned on Tuesday.  This was our son's 19th country to visit.  My husband and I went there three years ago for a trip.  We had a wonderful time in London! 

I did separate blog posts for each day of our vacation in London.

Thursday, the day we arrived we went to the Tower of London.  When my husband and I went to London three years ago we were on a very tight budget (which is hard to be on since London is very expensive).  We didn't do many attractions, except for the London Eye and the Hop on Hop off bus which included a river tour.  Other than that we didn't go in anything but rather enjoyed the parks and memorials.  So this time around we were looking forward to visiting more things.  The Tower of London was amazing.  It's where the Crown Jewels are held.  You can't take any pictures of them but it was neat to see.  I didn't realize it was so big.  It's basically it's own little city within London.
