The trip thus far

Okay, it was a rough night, but I digress. Let me provide a short recap first:
- Saturday: got off to a bit slower start, kids & wife were tired from all the travel, but some energy kicked in once we got going. The main things we saw were: Parliamant Square, the Clock Tower (Big Ben), Westminster Abbey (outside only), I had real fish and chips, and St. Paul's Cathedral. There's more, to be sure, but those were the main highlights, and it was rainy off and on. By the end of the day, the youngest didn't want to walk anymore, and all of our feet hurt. The kids went to bed around 8pm and they were sound asleep within moments. The wife and I soon followed and went to sleep as quickly.
- Yesterday (Sunday) we did the Tower of London (with the Crown Jewels), afternoon tea in St. James Park, and the London Eye. Great day, no rain...and all went well towards the end of the day when the youngest, while playing in a children's play area, fell on her left elbow. Ever since then it has hurt, to the point that she woke up in the middle of the night and I had to go downstairs to get some ice at 4am. She went back to sleep fine afterwards.

Today: The Stonehenge Tour. And Glastonbury. We hope the weather holds out. I hope my driving does! Just going to keep thinking "Left! Left! Left!". Wish me luck. Pray even. :)

I hope the elbow's OK by now! Poor baby. :( And what the heck is "The London Eye?"
