to come up with more "great ideas."
On Monday we went to the London Science Museum to see a special exhibit featuring our dear friends, Wallace and Grommit. The focus was on inventions and other "great ideas" and the importance of copyright and patents, etc. It was really fun and educational and well-designed. We learned there is a Wallace and Grommit movie we haven't seen yet! It's called "A Matter of Loaf and Death" and we can't wait to find it at home.

Later on we walked around Covent Garden and the Neal's Yard area. The boys bought some clothes at some cool vintage shops. Heading for the Tube at Tottenham Court Yard, we passed Simon Callow on the street! He had been in "Waiting for Godot" which Clark and I saw last week.

Tuesday was Legoland! What to say? The target age group is from 5 - 12, so obviously Rhys enjoyed it the most. The lines were long, but we did get on to one roller coaster. I think we enjoyed the large area full of Lego creations, such as Mini-London, as much as anything else in the park.

We think this is the actual set from "The Curse of the Were-Rabbit."

Does anyone know how many statues of Victoria there are in London? My guess would be dozens.

This was an action-packed tale, with tumblers, divers, and jet skis. It was silly, but actually kind of fun.

This was really quite impressive, although the relative scale of the different buildings was not right.
