London 2006

Our great friends, Gillian and Elvis, invited us to stay at their home in London and see some of what England had to offer.  We found it to be absolutely incredible... awe inspiring.  We ran all over London for 7 days soaking up the beauty and the history.  Gillian and Elvis have a beautiful home and treated us as though WE were the "royal family".
