Can I just sleep outside too?

Finally, we had an absolutely beautiful weekend in London. Sunny and warm and perfect. We spent pretty much the ENTIRE weekend outdoors. Saturday, we had lunch at Parsons Green with our friends Monique and Murray. (I forgot my camera so no pictures...) It's so brilliant - there's a pub there just next to the park and they grill out on the weekends. You get your food, your pint, and you head to the park. Later, waitresses come round and pick up all the empty glasses. It was so nice, we layed out on a blanket there for hours! Later that night, we had lots of people over for a BBQ and hung out on the patio all evening.

Then, today we woke up, got a newspaper, made mimosas, and headed for the patio again.

The best thing about the British newspapers is that they all come with a nice glossy style or culture or something similar section.

This afternoon, we trained out to Reading where some friends of ours live for another BBQ. They have a lovely place with a huge backyard right on the Thames River. It was so quiet and relaxing!

A cute little duck family that swam by... Although, I am wondering about the 3 big ducks instead of 2. Is this a "Timmy has two daddies" kind of situation?

The boys playing with the radio controlled boat...

All in all, a very nice and relaxing weekend. Now I have to go pick out an outfit for tomorrow - I'm going to a fashion show!!
