Owen and I attended an Easter fayre -- the spelling is theirs, not mine -- in St. John's Wood. He got to experience a carnival ride -- he seems to like those just fine despite numerous Disney trips in his lifetime -- and his hair had a mind of its own. I suppose that isn't unusual these days, though.
This weekend was our church's General Conference. We opted to watch sessions online, which is an option I've ever-so-grateful for. And although it was part of last week's General Women's Meeting and not this week's sessions, I want to mention that my favorite part of it all was this song.
With Laura and Owen both on Easter break, we had some time to see and do things. I already mentioned the Royal Air Force Museum, and we returned (yet again) to the Princess Diana Memorial Playground. We also visited the Victoria Embankment Gardens with some friends from church. The flowers were lovely. This slightly out of focus photo taken by Owen gives you a general idea.
Those purple tulips really are awesome.
And the memorial to the Imperial Camel Corps is my favorite permanent fixture.
Then we all went to lunch at Shake Shack, which I'd never been to. I got a shake for the children to share. They were happy.
The biggest event of the week, though, was our anniversary. Fifteen years!?! Such a milestone warranted flowers, of course.
We went to dinner at Wahaca, which is good despite its name reminding me of Fozzie Bear. And then we went to see Spamalot, which I'd wanted to see forever but had put off for various reasons.
I could write a whole post on Spamalot, but I'll spare all of you that since I'm already quite behind in blogging. I will say, though, that the show's best parts are the ones not taken directly from the movie. I thought the cast was excellent, and we saw Michael Palin as God instead of Eric Idle. That worked out just fine for me, and although I suppose I would have to see both in order to make a fair comparison, I think Michael Palin is better suited for the role. (Yes, I know it's a minor part of the production, but if they're going to make a big deal about it, I am, too.)
Unfortunately the show closed a couple of nights later, so those who haven't seen it will have to catch it on tour or wait for it to be re-revived. I'd go again, though.
