Pictures Especially For Our Precious Grandchildren

Here are some pictures especially for you, our precious grandchildren!

Christus Statue at the Hyde Park Chapel Visitors' Centre
Here is the statue of Jesus that is in the Visitors’ Centre. We love to teach people about Jesus Christ everyday when they come into the Visitors’ Centre. Jesus loves everyone in this whole world! This is why we are serving a mission here in London, England.

Children going for a walk on our street
 Many of the school children here wear uniforms. We have a school across the street from our flat. It is 5 levels tall and even some classes are in the basement. Each day we hear the children as they gather to go on walks.

Children on a field-trip
We often see school children in their colorful uniforms as they go to the Science Museum across the street from the Visitors’ Centre. Grandpa Pat took a picture of these children walking down the road as we were riding the bus.

It is fun to ride the buses in London. They are big, tall red ones. They have big numbers on the front and back telling what route the bus is taking. We take bus number 9 to High Street Kensington when we want to go shopping or to Hyde Park. Hyde Park in London is a great big park!

New style double-decker bus
Many of the buses have stairs inside that go up to a second level. We like to sit on the top level looking out the front window. Here is a picture taken from the bus...

Do the people drive on the same side of the road as in Hyde Park Utah?
Can you find the taxi cabs and all the people walking? Can you see the man on a bike?

We went to a big toy store that had lots of things made out of Legos. Do you know who these people are? Do you see the red telephone booth behind? It is made of Legos also. What do you like to make out of Legos?

Legos at Hamley's
There are three huge museums very near to the Visitors’ Centre and to our flat. The Science Museum, the Victoria & Albert Museum, and the Museum of Natural History. The Museum of Natural History has a big dinosaur in the main entrance hall and another exhibit with an animated T-rex.

There are lots of chimneys on the building all around. Most are not used any more, but they really look cool:) We see them and always think of the movie “Mary Poppins."

Chimneys out our back window
What questions do you have for us about serving a mission and living in London? We will try to answer them and send more pictures.
We love you forever, tons and googols!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxooxoxox
