Last weekend
my parents took me to London for my 15th Birthday!
Packing very light, leaving room in our bags for our new shopping finds, we were off to the land of the English!
The first thing we did once we were in London was the London Eye! It is such a cool ride, you go sooo high in the air (135 Meters to be precise), and you get the best view of London there is. It's a long ride, but the capsules are giant, so we were all able to get pictures of the city from every angle.
This is what we rode in on the Eye

The day after was my Birthday, so we celebrated it on Oxford and Regents Street, shopping our little hearts away and going in all the American stores we could find!!

After we went shopping we went to dinner and then to a movie! This was my first time, at a movie theater, since Christmas time that we saw a movie in English!!! We saw Slumdog Millionaire, which was very good!

The next morning we packed our bags and got ready to leave, we weren't leaving until that night, so we left our bags at the hotel and did some more sightseeing! We went on a walk through Hyde Park and saw Buckingham Palace along with the Horse Guards.

It was a wonderful birthday and trip!
