So it was Wednesday night and Mom and Dad told me that we are heading to England for the Memorial Day long weekend TOMORROW.
Hey guys, I know I have not been active since I launched my blog, but due to my family and I going out of the Country for a long weekend on Thursday (straight after school!) - p.s School is out for summer!! to visit family back in England, it has been a super busy last few days.
From when we left last week, until today, it was such a fun filled, great time.
My family and I managed to pack so much into a limited amount of time, and I loved every minute of it!
The fun all began when we arrived in England at about 3:30am Vegas time! We had a friend meet us and drive us to my Nan's house. Once we got there we decided to walk to a cafe that we used to love when we lived in England called 'tea and times' here I enjoyed a bacon and brie sandwich, which was simply delicious, just like I remembered! (Thanks for paying Auntie Helen).
After we finished our sandwiches and our stomachs were as complete as can be, we started to walk towards a classic sweet shop, we waited outside whilst Helen went in. When Helen came out she had gotten me some toffee crumble, a traditional sweet from the UK, which satisfied my craving for UK sweets (candy) - I was very happy.
By this time, we were on our way back to my Nan's house, that was when I quickly realized that the pavements were NOT wheelchair friendly! Having not been in the UK for a number of years and this being my first trip in a wheelchair I could not believe how uneven, broken slabs and difficult they were to maneuver around.
Upon our arrival at my Nan's house, I started to demolish the toffee crumble!
In this time span, my Aunt had gone to get Violet from school who I had not seen in almost 3 years!
Within seconds of Violet's arrival - she ran to me and gave me a huge hug!
By now I was exhausted and needed a nap and rested on the sofa whilst Mom and Nan went to the grocery store........ When I was woken up........... The next BIG suprise happened........... My Awesome sister Dani was there!
