Bank Holiday Weekend Recap

May 28, 2013

This past weekend was what they call a "Bank Holiday," or in 
other words, a long weekend. This weekend was packed full of fun things. Here's a little recap:

Started off the long weekend on Thursday with the Natural History Museum. Can you believe this gorgeous building was built with the intention of being a museum? It looks like a palace! They had an awesome dinosaur exhibit :)

Friday I went shopping at Harrods--here's my reflection in the Gatsby themed windows. I was then able check it off my bucket list. Yes, I have a tangible, written bucket list. There were so many fabulous things in one place there! Also, I have never felt poorer than when I was in Harrods.

After Harrods I did a little shopping at some more affordable places. 

After a long day of shopping I had to refuel with this scrumptious waffle and ice cream.

Saturday we took a day trip to Stonehenge and Bath:

Gorgeous English countryside seen while driving from Stonehenge to Bath.

Lovely green water in the Roman baths. 

I know people say it's overrated, but it was on my bucket list, so I'm glad to check another item off!

Then on Sunday I met up with one of my best friends Malorie, who came to visit! We went and found the Parent Trap house, because it's her favorite movie :) (Unfortunately all of our pictures together were on her camera, so I have none of us.)

Then Monday on our Bank Holiday, Ellen and I went to the Tower of London.
Don't mind the cranes...

Lastly, I ate lots of ice cream. They have these brilliant (see what I did there) cones here. 

What did you do with your long weekend?
