  1. The first thing that struck me was that you'd be spending the 4th of July in England. Somehow that just seems.... hmmmm.... LOL Hope you have a great time!!!!

  2. Looks like fun! I'll be following your adventures. I once spent July 4th in England, but I was on an American air base visiting a friend whose dh was in the Air Force. Still, it was interesting.
