Tower of London

Warm sunny weather for our trip to the Tower of London on Sunday. We set out at 9am and returned gone 1030pm – long day. L (12) was our reason for visiting the Tower as he loves British History and has a keen interest in Museum type venues. All six of us went covered under our Royal Palaces Membership which was purchased not so long ago at our trip to Hampton Court Palace. Some tricky difficult challenging moments with either boredom for some, achy tired feet, ice cream issues, bus seat issues and later a situation with a very busy Diana Memorial Park visit.  As  parents we have to see them as just moments and not as the whole picture otherwise we could easily write ourselves off as failures in the family days out category particularly on this occasion.
