La La La London

What's this? Why this is me chillin' with my littlest pal Alex. Yep we're just hanging out in Reigate, watching the Power Rangers and having a snack. He's my sisters' Godson which I suppose would make me his Godaunt? I don't get to see him very often so I made sure to see him while I was in the U.K.

Kat and Alex

Here he is again with his beautiful Mum, Marina. My family first knew her as our Belarussian exchange student, over 10 years ago!

What? You say you want more museum shots? Here's me inside the British Musuem. It is really beautiful, especially the ceiling. Ok, the paintings and the sculptures are beautiful too but look at the ceiling!

Here's Jesse on the Millenium Bridge with St. Pauls behind him. St. Pauls is the only church I can think of that requested payment... We were on our way to the Tate Modern which I really enjoyed, but it was smaller than it seemed from the outside.

I loved this installation of boxes at the Tate Modern. Jesse looks like a penguin in ice cube land. It's by Rachel Whiteread, titled Embankment.

Next time Paris... and yarn.

I love the ice cube sculpture. Isn't instalation art cool? I love being part of the art, what a cool idea.

I think I loved it for the scale alone, but also that they let you walk around in it. I feel like we might not allow that in the U.S. due to liability issues.
