We have come to England to enjoy Spring Break this year. We have had a really nice time visiting with family and enjoying all that Warwickshire has to offer. We were due to travel home on Saturday but because of the Volcano in Iceland we can first get home on Wednesday…as long as Eyjafjallajokull doesn’t blow again. Still, as everyone keeps saying, its nice that we are with family and not stuck in an airport or a hotel somewhere.

One of the things that has been special about being home with the girls is relearning the history of where I come from. We spent a day at the Herbert Art Gallery in Coventry, where we learned the story of Lady Godiva and Peeping Tom

We’ve had time to enjoy some lovely food.

We learned a little about the Inland Waterways System that runs through England. Hatton Locks

We also visited: The Butterfly Farm, The Think Tank, saw Alice in Wonderland IMAX 3D (I highly recommend it – though I have to see it again because I fell asleep during the Mad Hatters Tea Party – jet lag caught up with me!) and Coventry Cathedral

If we can get home on Wednesday, I’m going to start talking to Ronnie about a beach vacation – I’m pooped!
