Last Day in London (All the Tears)

Thursday was our last day in London (insert the sound of crying Nicole and Stefanie). So we started off early and headed out to the Westminster area. After waiting in line for a while (even though it had only opened a half hour before!), we went into Westminster Abbey. While a church was founded on the site in the seventh century, the current church dates to 1245. It has been the site of every British monarch's coronation since 1066. In addition, many royals have been married in the abbey such as Will and Kate most recently.

After that, we walked across the bridge which gave us great views of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

After waiting in line for a while, we got onto the London Eye. (The line had free wifi powered by the Cloud, which is a great invention.) The views were incredible.

After finishing up there, we walked to the Imperial War Museum. It had recently reopened after a year of refurbishment, so it was crazy busy. We did get to see the Holocaust and the "A Family in Wartime" exhibits.

We went to Harrod's for the rest of the evening, to look around and eat. We had dinner at the pizzeria which was lovely. 
Basically Heaven. 

Look who we found in the Disney Store in
I also found an alien. Oh yeah and the little green thing
from Toy Story. 
We fell in love with these mugs!  
Yummy yummy macaroons! 

We spent the rest of the night packing everything up to head out early in the morning. It's still hard to believe that our time in London is finally over!
