Another post on here, caused me to have a London memory that made me laugh out loud.
I thought it would be fun to share some of our lighter memories of London.
When my daughter was 5 we went to London for the first time. One day while the rest of the family went shopping, my dad took my daughter to feed the pigeons in Trafalgar Square (a no-no now I know!). When they got home that evening, I couldn't believe how filthy and messy she was, but when we watched back the video of her day, I saw why.....
There was about 20 minutes of her chasing the birds, and swinging on the bird poop covered rails, then my dad decides to get her a bag of bread to feed the birds. As you can imagine, once the sack was opened, the birds were her new best friends. The video goes on with her feeding them and then all of a sudden, a pigeon lands right on the top of her head. After the initial thought of "Ewww lice", I thought "Awww, how cute", but then, she held an entire slice of bread up for the pigeon on her head, and all of a sudden, a swarm of about 15 pigeons all fly up to her little head and she starts running around yelling with this circle of birds on her head all flapping around! The next thing you see is the camera lowered, and my dad chasing after this little running body with a swarm of pigeons instead of a head yelling, "Drop the bread sweetheart! Just drop the bread!"
When we want a good laugh we still watch the video. Every Sunday night, while watching America's Funniest Home Videos, my daughter says we should send her London tape in. =)
